In 1976 David Klein invented the Jelly Belly and sold the company in 1980. After 30 years he is now back with “David’s Signature Beyond Gourmet Jelly Beans”. Unlike traditional jelly beans currently found in the marketplace, David’s ‘Beyond Gourmet’ Jelly BeansTM are the first true, ‘beyond gourmet’ product on the market with no artificial flavors and no artificial colors. It’s the first confectionery product of its kind: blending exotic cuisine and luxury candy. With David’s Signature ‘Beyond Gourmet’ Jelly BeansTM, consumers will be able to take a delicious sensory journey around the world, experiencing the world’s finest and most exotic spices, herbs, roots, flowers, fruits, and nuts specific to world cultures.
These David’s Signature Beyond Gourmet “Thai Chilly” jelly beans are spot on in authentic flavor and are actually fairly spicy (but not in the practical joke range). I love all things spicy (my wife says I’m not human in this regard) and enjoy all sorts of hot peppers, so since it has both spicy heat and a realist taste, these are now one of my favorite things. The rest of my family is split on these, with my wife that saying they are way too hot for her and my son says he enjoys the flavor but is on the borderline with the heat.
This flavor is from David Klein, the creator of the famous “Jelly Belly” jelly beans, so I was thrilled to be offered this to review since my family loves jelly beans.
I also really like that these jelly beans are made with natural flavors and colors.
Highly recommended for those that enjoy hot peppers! Also try David’s Signature Beyond Gourmet Habanero Jelly Beans if you are adventurous!
