Red beans

I made a boo-boo. Again. I bought a three-pound jug of Jelly Belly beanies at BJs. Why can’t I learn my lesson? I eat the ones I like, then chuck the rest into a small garbage can, which by the way is best accomplished from across the room. Anyway, I have compiled a list of the best and worst flavors.

My Top Ten Jelly Belly Beans (These are in order.)

Red Apple – the absolute tops!
Very Cherry – follows very closely
Strawberry Jam (lol, I just typed Strawberry Ham, how gross would that be!?)
Sunkist Tangerine
Tutti Fruitti
Any of the sour ones (these I count as one flavor, because I like them all the same amount.)
Pink Grapefuit

Hmm. I never knew I liked fruit so much. Conversely, 80% of the icky flavors are non-fruit-related.

My Worst Ten Jelly Belly Beans (Not in any particular order, since they don’t deserve it, anyway.)

Juicy Pear
Top Banana
Cafe Latte
Peanut Butter
Buttered Popcorn
Strawberry Cheesecake
Dr. Pepper
French Vanilla
Chocolate Pudding

Anyone else? Preferences? Nasties? I know you have 'em...

Your Niecey likes the Tutti Frutti flavor, too. Also she just likes saying, "Tutti Frutti."

Yay! But it's Tutti FruItti, not Tutti Frutti. You know, to show off its fruitiness. But it actually doesn't taste like fruit at all, so why call it that? Just wondering.

Huh. You know, she had a whole Jelly Belly menu that she and her brother kept fighting over at the table for a week or so until I told her to get rid of it. I think she secreted it up to her room, so she could practice reading the flavors out loud at night when she's supposed to be sleeping.

Haha! I love that. "As visions of jellybeans danced through her head..."

I think we did the same general thing with song lyrics. I can still recite "Raising Hell" by RunDMC, from back in the day. *giggle*

Also, I wonder if saying "Tutti Frutti" is as much fun as saying "Yoga Booty Ballet-ay-ay?"
