Hi! We're Sam and Farrah. We love food — ESPECIALLY dessert — so when we heard Jelly Belly and Krispy Kreme were teaming up to launch donut-flavored jelly beans...we KNEW we had to try them. So we did!
The jelly beans come in five flavors: Original Glazed, Chocolate Iced With Sprinkles, Strawberry Iced, Cinnamon Apple Filled, and Glazed Blueberry Cake. YUM.
OK let's cut to the chase because we were hungry and you're here for the food review, not endless exposition. So without further ado...HERE WE GO!
Sam's Review: What's crazy about the jelly bean is it sort of LOOKS like a donut — it has the same shiny exterior that a glazed donut does. What's even crazier is it TASTES exactly like a Krispy Kreme donut, but you're sort of thrown off because it has the consistency of a jelly bean. It wasn't bad, just a little jarring at first!
Sam's Ranking 4/5
Farrah's Review: I was not expecting to get such an overwhelming kick of glazed donut right off the bat, but WOW. It actually does taste like the classic Krispy Kreme donut, except it's a little confusing because you're chewing a sticky texture instead of a pillowy one. Bonus points for capturing the sheen of actual glaze. This one wins in my book for tasting the most authentic.
Farrah's Ranking 5/5
