Taste A Beer Flavored Jelly Belly

blly beerby Steven Doyle

What is gluten free, fat free, vegetarian friendly, kosher, peanut free and non-alcoholic but tastes like a draft beer? The latest Jelly Belly flavor. The company unveiled the new flavor at the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco recently, and claim it “tastes like your favorite draft beer”. I am so pleased that the new flavor tastes like Peticolas Velvet Hammer, but how did they know?

Anyway, you can purchase online for now at their website. Cost is $8.99 a pound (currently on sale for less) and you get about 400 beans to a bag. That is about what the cost of a really good craft beer would set you back locally. Consider this gateway booze. You know, for kids.
