Pomegranate Jelly Belly success!

food-blog-pictures.jpgI have been searching for pomegranate Jelly Belly beans (BUY) ever since Cybele from Candy Blog reviewed them. I checked all the Jelly Belly selling places that I could think of, but to no avail. Finally, I discovered them in an unexpected place: the hospital gift shop. My doctor has an office at the hospital, and after my annual checkup, I decided to pop in the gift shop to see if they had candy. Not seeing any, I was on my way out when I noticed the Jelly Belly dispensers in the corner. Lo and behold, they had an entire dispenser just for the pomegranate beans! Hooray!

food-blog-pictures-131.jpgThe beans are beautifully colored, and my camera didn’t do them justice. They’re a gorgeous shade of red with white and/or dark red splotches.

They taste good too. Honestly, I was a little disappointed at first taste because I had made these guys into my Holy Grail of candies. food-blog-pictures-132.jpgAfter a few more beans, however, I realized that my expectations were completely unreasonable. Just because the pomegranate beans didn’t send me to candy nirvana doesn’t mean that they’re not delicious.

food-blog-pictures-130.jpgThey’re a little tart and super fruity, with a little hint of olfactory raspberry. While I usually hate that taste, in the pomegranate Jelly Belly it was light, understated, and it worked. I didn’t get a distinctively pomegranate flavor, but then again, I haven’t had an actual fresh pomegranate in years, so I don’t really remember what they’re supposed to taste like. Either way, the pomegranate Jelly Belly is a tasty flavor that will mix well with the other fruit-flavored Jelly Belly beans that they already sell.
