Jelly Belly jelly beans bring back individual memories with each bite.
The crushed pineapple reminds me of some of my earliest memories as a kid. At PawPaw's house, in Texas. He had a brown chair and a jar of jelly bellies. He would sneak them to me when my parents weren't looking.
The blueberry (with black liquorice in the middle) reminds me of visiting my aunt in the summer. I bought a whole jar of 'medicine'....really it was all blueberry jelly beans, I tried to make them last for the whole trip.
The peach have always been my favorite. They remind me of peach and cinnamon snow cones from Tropical Snow on the Neosho boulevard, after a day of chlorine and sunshine at the city pool the summer after my senior year of high school.
I think my new favorite flavor is very cherry. It bright coral color is so shiny and tart. Now it will remind me of spring break 2015, when I got to the mall, just before opening and snuck into the candy shop--first customer of the day--to fill my bag with all my favorite flavors.....pineapple, blueberry, peach, very cherry, 7up, orange sherbert, island punch, sizzling cinnamon, sunkist tangerine, and strawberry cheesecake. I steered clear of my least favorites: buttered popcorn, bubblegum, cantaloupe (I hate all the melon ones), toasted marshmallow and black liquorish.
