I WANT MY JELLY BELLY CANDY, NOW!!!
"CANDY LAND , HERE WE COME."
Tours of the Jelly Belly factory start out in a magical setting of floating jelly beans and balloons. Sadly, no pictures allowed inside the factory, but I will tell you that you learn more than ever wanted to know about the making of jelly beans, but you can now appreciate why they cost so much. Wonderful tour for young and old, alike. Lasts about 40 minutes. Free Jelly Bellys at the end of the tour.
"FLOATING ABOVE IT ALL"
While in line for the tour, you stay busy just looking up at all the goodies hanging from the ceiling. That's one way to keep a child's head up. Hey it also is a good way for you to stretch the neck and look up, too.
"THE MAN THAT PUT JELLY BELLY ON THE MAP"
It's true. The President of the United States of America had a sweet tooth. Ronald Reagan always had a jar of Jelly Bellys on his desk in the oval office. Jelly Belly claims that they sent thousands of pounds of jelly bellys to the president every year while he was in office.
It is a fact that they were found everywhere in the White House and even the Jet that flew the president around the world. Now, that's what I call sugar coating the government. Oh yes, there is on display at Jelly Belly of a letter from the president on White House letterhead to Jelly Belly. BTW, the artwork is all made up of different Jelly Belly beans. Quite a job.5s4
"JELLY BELLY GOVERNOR ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER"
Just a bunch of jelly beans. Amazing how lifelike the artwork is. Talent is found in the most amazing places. A jelly bean factory. Of course, the longest spelled name of a California Governor and the hardest to pronounce. Call me "GOVERNATOR" has his portrait in the front lobby of the JELLY BELLY CANDY COMPANY.
"FOURTH OF JULY DISPLAY"
Staying with the theme of President and Governor is the red, white, and blue JELLY BELLY display.
The store has all kinds of displays and jelly beans and other types of candies to choose from.
"ANY FLAVOR YOU WANT, EVEN VOMIT. YUK!"
Queasy stomach. Careful what you will now read. Vomit flavor Jelly Belly. Hey, I didn't come up with that one. Yes, Vomit is one of the new flavors, along with dirt, sardines, and, that's it, I can't do any more. Who thinks up these flavors? What's wrong with cherry, grape, and lime. Nope, it's got to be strawberry cheesecake, island punch, margarita,..... well, that one sounds ok. Actually, all the flavors are delicious.
"MASCOT ON HAND"
Well children, it's time to go. "The wallet is empty and the pockets are bare, but in the bag are Jelly Belly beans to share". Travelgourmet, original poetic saying. lol.
Fun time for all. Please visit the JELLY BELLY CANDY COMPANY next time you are touring around Napa or going down the I-80 between San Francisco and Sacramento and you see Fairfield. It is the exciting home to the one and only JELLY BELLY. Bye now!
