I don't eat candy as a rule but a colleague gave out some jellybeans for V-Day and I'm nibbling at them because I'm off sick and am eating whatever there is in the house.

Everything was great until I encountered the one that tastes like buttered popcorn.

Ugh
Ugh
Ugh.

Why can't they stick to the fruity flavours????

Buttered popcorn jelly beans pre-date Harry Potter. My mother and I used to eat them when I was in school. Personally, I think they are fabulous. Feel free to send them my way!

I used to hate the buttered popcorn ones. Then they somehow started to grow on me. Now they are my favorite flavor of all.

I love the pear ones but hate the root beer. Anyone want to trade with me? What flavour do you have?

I'll take the root beer if someone will take all the red/pink ones. Some of them are undoubtedly strawberry and I won't take that risk by eating any of them.

Yeah, the buttered popcorn have been around for a while and I agree that they are awful. Love me some juicy pear though!

The last time I was in JellyBelly, they had the following tasty flavors:

-Dog food
-Toothpaste
-Booger

There were several others that sounded equally disgusting, but I can't recall them right now.

Ugh! That is right out of a Harry Potter book. Mix the pineapple and coconut and you have a piña colada. Yum!
Banana is good too!!!

I want to know who the flavor tester is! How do they know what booger flavor really is? Just curious.

Those Harry Potter jelly beans are all the rage with my fourth graders right now. They challenge each other to eat them at lunch...

In the box are 2 beans that look identical.. But one will be dog food flavor and the other chocolate. One is skunk spray, the other licorice. One is coconut, the other baby wipes.

I can't deal with them. It is just so gross. They even have vomit flavor!

There used to be (May still be) a HP flavor that was earwax.

Me too! I used to go into the Jelly Belly store when I was in high school and fill up a bag with just buttered popcorn. They don't mix well with other flavors but they are great separate.

ETA: The Harry Potter ones aren't as awful as they sound. It's a bit of a let down when you are expecting a certain flavor, but they are still candy. My nephew was cracking up giving them to me, expecting me to be all grossed out, eh I've tasted more jelly beans than boogers so it tastes more like a jelly bean to me
