I am back.....April Fools....
WOW.....I gained 3 pounds just looking at the pictures...please open up in California--please.
My wife is out right now buying all the ingredients for this...My mouth is watering...thank youuuuuuu
Okay..this is the Candyman. We(benmin and myself) have decided that if we receive an apology on this site we will return.
This is my swan song. I have tried to live by the rules of this site. I have not mentioned the candy product I created before most of you were born, I have not mentioned the documentary on my life, I have not mentioned the name of my new jelly bean which is much better than the one I first created. No I am not the same person as benmin. I can say that even though we have never met he has such passion for this topic and I believe that many of your postings were not called for. So I will not be back.
@Ravenous---do you like jelly beans?
@lemonfair----Please help me understand your comment...thank you
I once read a book by Adele Davis in which she was telling about a Dr. Jellybean who gave jelly beans to all his patients in the hospital. Any more info would be greatly appreciated .
There have been many art pieces that were made from jelly beans. Much work must have gone into these awesome works of art. Wonder how many jelly beans were used in the average piece of art?
Many tutors use jelly beans as an incentive to their students. Many swimming instructors always arrive with jelly beans in their bag. Do you know anyone who has used jelly beans as an incentive?
What I find totally amazing is that so much flavor can be packed into such a little product. I especially enjoy any product where I can taste it upon first putting it in my mouth. I believe that the world of flavors has really come a long way but you have not seen anything yet.
@benmin--that is just GREAT. I am totally impressed with your comments. You are a big asset to this discussion. I hope that we will hear much more from you.
@Belinskaya---enjoyed reading your comments...In fact I agreed with everything you said....I also noticed the cooling effect when dextrose was used. It sounds like you are a true jelly bean fan. thanksssssssssssss
@Geach-----Love your comment about candy anxiety/trust issues. Very very Creative. Regarding your braces --either you or your parents spent at least 6 big ones (6,000.00) to see that you would have perfect teeth.I wish I had perfect teeth--I am down to five teeth. At least it does not take as long to brush them. Your braces will be off before you know it...
@benmin---WOW WOW WOW....very very impressive list of flavors...I think we should call you "The King of Jelly Beans." thanksssssssssssss
I just ate 5 jelly beans--all the same flavor.
Does anyone have any real great recipes involving jelly beans? Thanking you in advance....

@benmin---that is a great question. Do you have some jelly bean flavors you would like to see being made?
Here is what I like about jelly beans---you can ship them and not worry about them melting in hot weather.They can be made in an endless variety of flavors and colors.They are beautiful to look at in a crystal container. They can be layered in a glass or plastic container in complementary colors. They satisfy your sweet tooth without consuming a lot of calories.They leave a pleasant taste in your mouth.
Okay--I would love to know---even if it is an educated guess.
I would love to know the name of the person who came up with the horrible idea of making jelly beans in disgusting flavors?
I totally agree with this comment.Jelly beans were meant to be swallowed and enjoyed-they were not meant to be hurled from the mouth.
NOW that is the PASSION I have been looking for.ANYONE else?
I would love to hear from people who have passion behind their love for jelly beans.Anyone out there that this applies to?
