    The tour is free and takes about a half hour--you ride in a little train, wear special Jelly Belly hats, and they show you the warehouse and videos of how Jelly Bellies are made. I really liked seeing the artwork made from Jelly Bellies and learning about some of the history of the little candy beans, like how Ronald Reagan loved them. The gift shop is quite large and we picked up some bags of Belly Flops--jelly beans that weren't shaped or colored quite right, but that are still delicious and are less expensive than the regular ones.

    It's definitely worth a stop if you're in the area or maybe if you're driving en route to somewhere else need a nice break to stretch your legs!

    If you find yourself in Pleasant Prairie, you might as well make a stop at the Jelly Belly warehouse. I don't think the prices on the regular Jelly Belly products are any cheaper than you can find in the stores but you can sample the many different flavors, buy Jelly Belly merchandise or 2 lb. bags of Belly Flops at discounted rates, the rejected Jelly Bellies that may not look so pretty but are supposed to taste just as good.

    Our tour guide said the most popular Jelly Belly flavor is cherry (although buttered popcorn is giving it a run for its money) but I found a new personal favorite-caramel apple!

    If you have a little time to spare, you might as well hop on the Jelly Belly train for the 1/2 hour tour around the warehouse.

    You are given a Jelly Belly hat to wear, the guide actually said it was required, and then hop on the Jelly Belly train which takes you in a loop around the warehouse, stopping every so often to watch a video screen with footage of one of the factories showing the production of Jelly Bellies or in front of a factory prop. It was sort of like watching the shows on the Food Network where they show you how candy is made except you're wearing a goofy hat and sitting on a train.

    At the end of the tour everyone gets a free sample bag of Jelly Bellies and can admire the Jelly Belly art on the walls.

Pleasant Prairie Warnings and Dangers

  • by richelmore Written Aug 11, 2006

    The roasted garlic isn't so bad, it just needs a buttered toast jelly belly to make delicious garlic bread :D Just don't mistake it for toasted marshmallow and give it to your little cousin. Not such a fun experience.

    Favorite thing: If you take the same exit to get to Jelly Belly, there's a tourist information center right near the exit full of brochure and flyers of things to do in Wisconsin. We picked up a handful of information on Milwaukee including a map with tourist locations marked very clearly.
