Rated 5 out of 5Â by Avocado The Search for Spiced Jelly Beans
Every year I begin my hunt for spiced jelly beans well before Easter. From Drugstore to Supermarket to Big Box stores, I go in search of the colorful sugar chewy nuggets. Name brands, unknown brands and store brands are all purchased with the hope that one bag will be minty and spicy enough to satisfy my mother. I thought she craved the jelly beans she had eaten as a young child nearly nine decades ago. No, she developed a passion for them during the years she created Easter baskets for my sister and me. Each Easter she would pick out the spiced jelly beans and put them in a small jar to be hidden away and enjoyed at a later time. Who knew?
I saw the spiced jelly beans advertised in the Vermont Country Store catalog, and thought, why not give them a try. When the spiced beans arrived at my house, I put together an Easter box and sent the jelly beans to my mother. She called me minutes after opening her box. Excitedly she told me she could identify the peppermint, cinnamon, spearmint and there were two other flavors as well. These were the flavors she remembered. True to form, my mother was in the process of putting the spiced jelly beans in a large container with a tight lid that was to be stowed away behind other jars on her candy shelf.

Was looking forward to great tasting spice jelly beans. These had hardly any taste and certainly not worth the money spent

My daughter and I are crazy about those spicy jelly beans. Tasty and yummy. We try not to eat too many at a time, but I notice my daughter finishes her half a bag well before I do.

These spice jelly beans are exactly like the ones we grew up with. The only difference is that they are a bit smaller. The flavors are true and the texture is perfect.

I like to get the same color in mouth. And, some time I like to do what I call a "blind" pick. I just put my fingers in the bag and grab. Once again, you guys knocked it out of the park!!

I have not liked jelly beans my whole life up to this point, but I ordered some spice jelly beans to take to my crafting group. However, now I hope you will feature these every year. They are delicious! I'm ordering two more bags.

These are the best! It's probably been 25 years since I've had jellybeans like these! Each one has a wonderful burst of flavor which is refreshing and doesn't have that "fake" flavor. I'll need to buy more of these so I can share and not be called selfish
