Fairfield, CA-based Jelly Belly is coming out with a new variety, "Smoothie Blend".
The collection of five new Jelly Belly flavors was inspired by the creative juices of the popular smoothie drink revolution. The JB folks took their five most favorite smoothies and turned them into jelly beans.
The mix of flavors includes Strawberry/Banana, Pineapple/Pear, Cherry/Passion Fruit, Mandarin Orange/Mango and Mixed Berry. The secret recipes use real puree of banana, blueberries and oranges, real pear and passion fruit juices.
The company also says the beans have a creamy texture reminiscent of a smoothie.
The new mixture will be in stores nationwide this spring.
