I casually remarked to a friend that I wanted to get some jelly beans for the trip from Maine to Texas. I like to get the big mixed bag and then see if we can guess the flavors. And a three pound container arrives on our porch! The taste testing isn't easy -- nectarine, orange, and tangerine taste awfully alike. When you throw in tooty-fruity and cafe latte and root beer float it gets even more difficult. But now I have a big container of jelly beans without any orange ones -- my favorite. And I keep digging, but all I come up with is pink and blue. And bubblegum and blue raspberry just aren't cutting it.
