Jelly Belly Honors German Heritage With Beer-Flavored Jelly Bean

How do you say "no, thanks" in German?



If you’ve ever been drinking a beer and wished it was non alcoholic and also a jelly bean, then we have good news for you, weirdo!

In honor of their German heritage, Jelly Belly premiered a new flavor last weekend at The Winter Fancy Food Show in San Fransisco. Simply called “Draft Beer” the bean reportedly tastes like a “Heffeweizen-inspired ale” (and not stale Easter Candy.)

Jelly Belly described the bean in a press release, saying  “The effervescent and crisp flavor is packed in a golden jelly bean with an iridescent finish. Beer connoisseurs will find the flavor profile to be clean with notes of wheat and a touch of sweetness. The aroma is mildly bready.”

So, again, if you like your jellybeans to smell like bread, or your beer to be disguised in a non alcoholic, jelly bean form, then this is great news for you.

We’d like to reiterate that like Jelly Belly’s other alcohol-inspired offerings (Strawberry Daiquiri, Pina Colada, and Mai Ta,i) “Draft Beer” beans have a zero percent alcohol content. That’s a shame, because the only time they’re probably palatable be when you’re drunk.

As far as weird flavors go they also sound considerably less interesting than Lawn Clipping, Rotten Egg, Barf, Skunk Spray, Baby Wipes, and some of Jelly Belly’s other wackier offerings.

So yeah, we guess you could do worse for yourself than beer-flavored jelly beans from Jelly Belly. But you could do way better, too. Real beer is all around you.
