Sunkist Fruit Gems

Are available at BJ’s, for the low, low price of only $7.99 for a huge two-pound bag. And sometime between my Bat Mitzvah and my thirties, Jelly Belly changed the grapefruit color from clear-ish to pinkish.

I just love these candies! They’re pretty, and squishy, and very slippery once you suck off the sanding sugar they are coated with. They are ideal for office candy jars because they are individually wrapped and they make people's breath smell better than, say, a Reese's pb cup. The best flavor is red (raspberry) and my favorite thing to do with them after I’ve sucked them naked is to slide them in and out of my mouth, flipping them just as they are about to fall onto my shirt. Kind of nasty, but don’t worry, I don’t let anyone see me…
