I have this little pocket internet book that I received with a computer textbook for one of my classes. It claims to have 4001 sites listed so I thought I'd flip through it and see if I could find something interesting. A section called Free Stuff caught my eye. But, of course.
One of the sites listed was for Jelly Belly Gourmet Jelly Beans. I thought what kind of free stuff could I get there - a coupon maybe for half-off? But, I went to the site anyhow. Right on the main page there was an offer for free jelly beans. So, I clicked the link filled in my name and address and voila in the mail today arrived my very own one ounce supply of free Jelly Belly Gourmet Jelly Beans. There wasn't a bunch of crap in the envelope either, just a little pamphlet listing all of their fifty flavors and some fun recipes that you can create by combining the various flavors of the beans. Who wouldn't want to savor the taste of Tiramisu for a measly 16 calories? You can, if you combine 2 Cappuccino Beans with 1 A&W Cream Soda Bean, and one Chocolate Pudding Bean. Or, how about a Banana Split for only 24 calories. Just combine 1 Top Banana, 1 Chocolate Pudding, 1 Crushed Pineapple, 1 Strawberry Jam, 1 Very Cherry, and 1 A&W Cream Soda for your low cal banana split treat.
Not much for sweets? They even have something for the more adventurous. They are called Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean. Apparently, these are the beans preferred by Harry Potter. I don't know much about Harry Potter but he has an interesting taste bud, if the choice of flavors are any indication. Some of Bertie Bott's flavors are Spinach, Sardine, Ear Wax, Dirt, and even Booger. Ewwwwww!!! Hmmm, I wonder what recipe you have if you combine 1 Spaghetti, with 1 Sardine, and 1 Spinach Bertie Bott Bean. Would it taste like pizza? Ha, I think they already created it with the Vomit flavored bean. But, don't take my word for it, go check out the site yourself. And, hey, if you don't want your free Jelly Belly Beans, send them my way. My favorite is Buttered Popcorn. What's yours?
