You can keep your starburst jbs, your jolly rancher jbs, your sour jbs, and all other sorts of counterfeit beans. They just aren't the real deal. I've tried them...and they just don't cut it. And don't grab a Brach's package too quickly or you might grab the spiced beans--those look the same and then they taste like clove or something. Blech.
It's straight up BCJBs for me. (although I do enjoy a jelly belly when it's not Easter...)
But I can't always find those elusive BCJBs. Walmart and Target and various grocery stores load up on the specialty beans...and there is nary a Brach's bag to be found! If I was looking for gummy spongebob crabby patties I would have been in luck today, by the way. yuck!
But today, on the non-seasonal candy aisle, on the bottom shelf, I spotted a Brach's box. Be still my heart! I approached cautiously, trying not to get my hopes up. I saw speckled Brach's--nope. Bags of all black Brach's--nope. Dig, dig, dig...and on the bottom, lo and behold were three bags of BCJBs!!! I snatched them up.
Yes, it's going to be a good Easter...
And by the way, lest you think I'm headed to hell for writing about jelly beans on Good Friday...I assure you that I have reflected, attended service, and now am about to watch the Passion of the Christ. What Jesus did for me is SO overwhelming. That's why it will be Sunday before I can imagine eating the BCJBs. What a celebration that will be! :0)
