There are many brands of jelly beans out there, so fans of Jelly Belly® the original gourmet jelly bean better wise up and ensure they recognise the best from the rest.
First off, look for the logo on the package. This may seem obvious but we get letters every day from people who have bean conned into thinking they've purchased Jelly Belly, only to be disappointed by the quality and the taste of the beans they've purchased.
Jelly Belly jelly beans are highly polished and perfectly shaped. They are created in a vast array of absolutely stunning bright colours and over 100 amazingly true-to life flavours.
Next - and here's the important bit so pay attention - on each and every jelly bean, we inscribe our name Jelly Belly.You'll have to look extra hard at the white beans like Coconut and Vanilla because the writing is in white - but it's definitely there.
