Jellybeans

You know when you fancy something to eat that's all scrummy and full of calories, well after having raided the fridge and all the hiding holes that you usually sling the odd manky Christmas After eight in and whatdoyafind ..............................................squiddly dit.
Well that happened to me this morning, needing a sugar rush the only thing i could find that resembled a sugary substance was these "The Original Gourmet Jellybeans" fresh-ish from the *Big Apple*.
My darling eldest son often brings home sweets when he has come home from Sunnier climes and they don't usually last past the "Hello how was your trip Darling" but for some unexplained reason they were still wrapped and IMO needed to be scoffed.
After battling with the wrapper with scissors and eventually secatuers i dove in....................... cor blimmey .................. have a word ......................... PLEASE WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOME PEOPLE........................... Garlic flavoured Jellybeans!!!!!!!!!!! what's that all about!!!!!!!!!!!! Minging thats what that is and Jalapeno Minging, Root beer Minging, Daiquiri Minging, Popcorn Minging, Margarita Minging, Cotton Candy ummmm not bad ................. 40 totally different flavours............... Why? ...................... what happened?
After Strawberry were these people looking at the spice rack thinking "Gee Honey how can we pee the people off, hummmm? i know lets sling a Chicken tikka mazala flavour in there Just for a laugh" "What about Blueberry, Cinnamon, Raspberry? Honey" says the female of the species " Nah, THEY MAY LIKE THEM" now that had to be a bloke! a woman would never do that to another like minded, sugar needing, woman, well would she, tsk.
Sheesh what are the Criteria to be a sweet manufacturer? one of them should at least be TASTE................ tsk.
On the back of the box it reads "Each flavor is unique unto itself" [No! you don't say!] " Hey try mixing them together and make yourself a cocktail of flavor" [yeah like that's gunna happen] "each box promises to generate excitement among your friends and family once the box is opened" ...... [Na, more like a punch up] now, i like a joke as i know we all do BUT .................... THERE ARE BLIMMIN LIMITS.

I'm off up the shops for a Mars bar, i need a Sugar rush...................... still.

Oh boy, I agree with you. I remember trying these once, and they are the most revolting concoctions ever known to man or angel. I only wish I could have sat there being increasingly rude about them with you! But then, I wasn't invited, was I! Hee hee.

So, on the calorie front, did you make up for it with the tatties? And where are the pics. I'll bet you've never photographed your roast tatties before. Come on, edit your post or somefink and add the tatties. I've popped in specially to compare them to mine! Shall we set up a poll on which look better. hahahahahha

Garlic? GARLIC??? I remember buying joke sweets when I was little... you sucked them and at first they were ok and then went nasty. I tried them out on all my firneds and my Mum(who was gullible and loved sweets).
There is no way I'd eat a garlic jelly bean.
NO WAY!
