In what world is it ok to create jelly beans taste like boogers, moldy cheese and barf? Jelly Belly brought these horrific flavors to our curious palettes in their jar of Bean Boozled jelly beans and thus, a YouTube challenge was born.
If you think about it, it’s absolutely genius. Jelly Belly is tricking us into eating disgusting beans, and because they’re so outlandish and offensive to the senses, we’re blogging and vlogging about it. What an awesome viral marketing ploy. Respect.
It took two adventurous youths to get me to try these beans, and try them we did. Every last one. Except the blue ones which could either be blueberry or toothpaste. I’m thinking the kids ate them before our challenge even started. I mean, it makes sense. Wouldn’t you want to wash your mouth out with mint after tasting canned dog food?
Here’s my rendition of the Bean Boozled Challenge.
