We got this box of jellybeans at Wegmans today.
I am not sure “Spiced” is the right word for these. What these jellybeans’ flavors are is, a bit unexpected. The green, for example, is spearmint and not lime.
The red ones really threw me at first. They taste like good black licorice.
When you are putting a red jellybean in your mouth you are prepared for… cherry. Strawberry. In a box labeled “spiced”, maybe cinnamon. But licorice?
I know there’s been research with lollipops on the relationships between color and taste. I did not expect this flavor at first and my brain refused to register it properly for the first few. Now, of course, it’s kind of fun.
