Limited BeanBoozled Throwback Edition Features Blasts from the Past
FAIRFIELD, CALIF., Jan. 22, 2017 — Retired Jelly Belly® jelly bean flavors get new life with the new BeanBoozled® Throwback Edition. Currently in its 4th Edition, BeanBoozled has become wildly popular thanks to viral exposure online though shared videos. Over the years, some of the line’s lookalike pairs of jelly beans have been retired to make room for new editions of the game. Now, all those retired flavors are back as a limited Throwback Edition launching now in the BeanBoozled line.
Six flavor pairs from the first, second and third editions of BeanBoozled are mixed together with four of the most iconic pairs currently available in the 4th Edition of BeanBoozled. This is the first time Jelly Belly has brought these flavors out of retirement, combining past and present in the classic Spinner Gift Box size.
Consumers all over the world are taking the BeanBoozled Challenge. The BeanBoozled line consists of pairs of identical looking Jelly Belly jelly beans with very different flavors. One possibility is a delicious Jelly Belly jelly bean flavor while the other is a weird and wild flavor. Will it be Top Banana or Pencil Shavings? Will it be Licorice or Skunk Spray?
“We hear from consumers all the time who tell us they wish they’d tried BeanBoozled in the earlier editions so they could have experienced flavors like Centipede and Baby Wipes,” explained Rob Swaigen, vice president of global marketing for Jelly Belly. “Now, between the 4th Edition and the Throwback Edition, every BeanBoozled flavor we’ve ever made is available at the same time.”
Available for a limited time, BeanBoozled Throwback Edition is sold separately from the current 4th Edition BeanBoozled Collection already on store shelves. Packaging for the Throwback Edition has an 80s and 90s look with bold colors and geometric shapes that sets it apart from the current BeanBoozled packaging. The BeanBoozled line was originally announced in 2007, and debuted on store shelves in early 2008.
