Jelly Belly Details 17 Shades of Green for St. Patrick’s Day
FAIRFIELD, CALIF., Mar. 10, 2014—Widely known as the makers of more than 100 different flavors, Jelly Belly Candy Company presents all of its green Jelly Belly® jelly beans just in time for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Internationally speaking, the world’s favorite jelly bean can be sampled in 17 green varieties, each with its own distinct flavor profile. There are enough green flavors to fill a St. Patrick’s Day candy buffet for your dreams.
Watermelon: Red in the center and dark green on the outside just like the real thing. Sweet and juicy watermelon flavor, without the seeds.
Green Apple: A quintessential flavor in any candy repertoire, Jelly Belly’s Green Apple recipe has been a success from the beginning, outpacing its red counterpart. Just a little tartness makes this bean a true-to-life flavor.
Sugar Free Green Apple: Like its regularly sweetened counterpart, the sugar-free variety has a slightly sour flavor one would expect from a crisp green apple off the tree.
Kiwi: This floral flavor builds into a delicious sweetness. Combine it with other flavors like Strawberry Jam or even Lemon for a new experience.
Margarita: Flavors of lime and agave swirl together with just a touch of salt to create a party in the mouth. No alcohol, all the flavor.
Sour Apple: Reminiscent of a Granny Smith, this flavor has just enough pucker to satisfy true apple lovers. Also available as Jewel Sour Apple with an iridescent finish that brings new meaning to the phrase “eating with your eyes first.”
Juicy Pear: From the flavor to the texture, this Jelly Belly jelly bean delivers. Creamy white center with green “skin” just like a fresh, juicy pear.
Booger: That’s right. Booger. Part of our BeanBoozled collection of lookalike flavors, it resembles Juicy Pear. We have it on good authority that it’s an authentic flavor. You can take our word for it.
Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip®: Part of the Cold Stone Creamery Collection, this jelly bean has just the right balance of creamy mint with rich chocolate.
Mojito: One cool cocktail with the flavor of muddled fresh mint leaves. Alcohol-free, but flavor intensified.
Sunkist® Lime (or Lime): Refreshing citrus flavor bursts from this sweet and slightly sour bean. It’s an invigorating experience.
Lawn Clippings (or Grass): Believe it or not, some actually enjoy this flavor for its grassy quality, despite its intention of being a wacky flavor in the BeanBoozled® jelly beans collection (color-matched to look like Lime so you don’t know which flavor you’re about to get).
Mango: A popular trend in gourmet foods, this exotic flavor takes on new life in a sweet package.
Lemon Lime: Not many Jelly Belly fans know this, but Lemon Lime has a lemon yellow center and lime green outer shell.
Green Tea: Available in international markets, Green Tea is a slightly grassy, aromatic flavor matched to traditional green tea.
7up®: Crisp and effervescent, this flavor is as refreshing as a cool sip of the iconic soda.
Green Draft Beer: Just for St. Patrick’s Day and available beginning March 14 exclusively and in limited supply at Jelly Belly Visitor and Tour Centers in California and Wisconsin, beer connoisseurs will find the flavor profile to be clean with notes of wheat and a touch of sweetness. Like other drink inspired flavors, Draft Beer is the grown ups’ choice, but still alcohol free.
