When you are away on vacation, sitting on an exotic island, sipping a tropical drink, you remember that today is your best friend's birthday. How could you forget?
Don't worry. You can still send a unique gift from that tropical island of yours to show that special person how much he or she means.
||Try sending a package of Jelly Belly jelly beans, which retail for just $6 or $7 per pound. These beans are only four calories each with zero fat and are even made in six sugar-free flavors.
Be sure to sample all 40 flavors. Some of the most popular flavors this year are red apple and green apple.
Jelly Belly offers some really unique flavors too. Imagine a cinnamon flavored jelly bean made with a splash of Tabasco pepper sauce. Spearmint and passion fruit flavors are made with real spearmint oil and passion fruit juice concentrates.
The most popular flavors are very cherry, buttered popcorn, licorice, green apple, watermelon, coconut, tangerine, cinnamon and blueberry.
These unique seasonal flavors make great gifts during the holidays: carrot cake, hot chocolate, Gramma's pumpkin pie, candy cane, hot cider, buttered rum and cranberry.
These small beans have a very intense flavor as they are extra flavored in the centers and their shells.
The new Top 10 Flavors Tin holds two pounds of Jelly Belly beans. The flavors include very cherry, buttered popcorn, green apple, tangerine, juicy pear, cinnamon, licorice, watermelon and blueberry.
The seven-flavor acrylic Jelly Belly bean is another unique gift, holding seven different flavors of these tasty beans.
The more traditional and popular choice is the 10-Flavor Jelly Belly Gift Box with 20 and 40 individual flavors.
For more information, call (800) JB-BEANS or visit their web site at www.jellybelly.com.
If you are traveling in California, visit the Jelly Belly corporate office for a factory tour. The café offers Jelly Belly hamburgers, hot dogs and pizza, all made in the shape of a jelly bean.
Try sending this unique gift or have a package awaiting your return from that well-deserved vacation.
