Jelly beans are meant to be a sweet treat—unless you're sampling Jelly Belly's BeanBoozled collection. The candy line is an exercise in masochism, with traditional jelly beans like peach and juicy pear mixed in with nasty varieties like barf and boogers. Now, WRAL.com reports that Jelly Belly is upping the gross factor with two new flavors.
Adventurous eaters will now find jelly beans that taste like liver and onions and old bandages in their BeanBoozled box. Like every disgusting candy in the collection, these additions come with conventionally flavored doppelgängers. The mottled red jelly beans either taste like an old bandage or sweet pomegranate. If you don't get a mouthful of liver and onions when you try the dark brown beans, you'll be treated to the more desirable cappuccino flavor instead.
Jelly Belly markets BeanBoozled as a twisted, Russian roulette-style game where players have to eat the beans to see which flavors they get. The brand is also perfect for gag gifts or pranks on unsuspecting candy-lovers. In addition to the new flavors, the line also includes stomach-turning varieties like dead fish, dirty dish water, toothpaste, and rotten eggs. The jelly beans are all safe to eat, but thanks to a rigorous development process and sophisticated odor-analyzing technology, they taste as close to the real thing as possible.
Jelly Belly's BeanBoozled packs, complete with the new flavors, are available to purchase in stores and online. Here are even more wacky flavors the candy company has inflicted on its customers in the past.
