Belly Flop 3/6/2009

Great fun for the kids and 'back to younger days' for the adult. Go for a tour, each some ice cream and then buy bags of belly flops (jelly bean rejects), cheap but tastes just like the regular. more

Interesting Tour, Delicious Samples! 5/31/2006

When ever we are in the neighborhod of Fairfield, California we try and stop at the Jelly Belly Factory. They have tours that leave about every 15-20 minutes. There are elevated hallways with windows that look down onto the factory floor so you can see the jelly bellies being made. They tell interesting facts, like the coconut flavor was created for President Ronald Regan because he requested a red white and blue mix of Jelly Bellies and at the time they didn't have a white bean. There is a gallery of art work that is made entirely out of Jelly Bellies. And at the end, you get a quarter pound bag of Jelly Bellies. And the best part, at the gift shop, they sell "belly flops" which are deformed Jelly Bellies, in one pound bags for like $2 each! They taste great, they just don't have the perfect Jelly Belly shape. There is also a tasting counter where you can taste some flavors they are testing, and all of the other regular flavors they carry. If you are in the area of Fairfield, California, I highly recommend this tour. It's a lot of fun. more

Free and Cheap Jelly Bellies! 4/26/2006

The Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield, CA is such a fun place to visit! You can go on a free factory tour and see exactly how they make Jelly bellies (it actually takes quite a few days. They also display amazing pictures made of the candy- someone has a lot more patience than I do! The tour is about 45 minutes long and you get 4 ounces of Jelly bellies at the end. There is a large gift shop at the end (of course!) There are Jelly Belly souveniers and all of the flavors. The tasting bar has all of the flavors and other cahndy to try as well. The belly flops are a great deal (seconds that are stuck together and such). They also have a cafeteria. Unfortunately, the factory is a little confusing to find, but it is well worth the trip. more

Jelly Belly Factory 8/22/2005

Located a little over an hour away from San Francisco in the town of Fairfield, the Jelly Belly factory produces millions of jelly beans a day. Free tours are given every 15 minutes and last approximately 40 minutes. If the magic of the process is not enough to entice you to go, think about the free Jelly Bellies they give you at the end of the tour. But I’m getting ahead of myself… We watched as the whizzing machinery belted out trays filled with rainbow arrays of beans. Our tour guide Christine took us through the each step of the process, explaining how the centers were made, how they were coated, polished and stamped with the Jelly Belly name. The factory floor was filled with rows of cement mixer-looking steel pots, mechanical arms to move the trays, and floors dusted with sugar. Without giving away the trade secrets, we discovered that actual essences of the flavors being reproduced were used. These flavors were used in each step of the process, ensuring that the intense flavor was consistent throughout the entire jelly bean. The part of the process I thought was most important was the quality control. In one of the finals stages, the jelly beans were passed through a large cylinder with holes that matched what the right jelly bean shape should be. Those which were too large or just malformed would not pass through. These beans were branded as outcasts, named Belly Flops, and would never receive the Jelly Belly stamp. After the tour, all I had on my one track mind was Belly Flops. They are perfectly good, minus the shapes and the lack of the stamp. But they sell at a deeply discounted rate. At the time, they had a sale for a 2 pound bag for $8 (a 50% discount). If you buy two, then the third bag is free. Okay, 6 pounds of Jelly Bellies sounds a bit overkill, but you can share with your friends. They also had a sample bar where you can try some of the Jelly Bellies if you aren’t sure if you will like them. Jalapeno sound intriguing, but don’t know if you want to commit yourself without knowing how they taste? Want to just see if buttered toast actually tastes like buttered toast? Want to know if juicy pear is really all that juicy? The sample bar- what a wonderful idea! more
