Chocolate-Covered Jelly Beans and Nostalgic Candy Lead Sweet Intros From Jelly Belly
FAIRFIELD, Calif., Jan. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Jelly Belly Candy Company brings fans a new sweet to get their chocolate fix, and a blast from the past with a whimsical nostalgic candy, just two of the numerous confections and gifts the company is unveiling at the 2011 Winter Fancy Food Show, booth #4051.
For chocolate lovers Jelly Belly Chocolate Dips™ are five flavors of the famous gourmet jelly bean drenched in decadent dark chocolate that create the perfect pairing of fruity flavors and rich chocolate. Jelly Belly bean flavors of Very Cherry, Raspberry, Strawberry, Coconut, and Orange have all taken the dip in chocolate and are less than 4 calories a bean.
Also new from the company that has been making candy corn for more than a century, Peas & Carrots mellocreme mix from Jelly Belly is a nostalgic confection with a touch of trend-setting whimsy.
Revived from the company's antique candy molds, the "baby carrots" are mellocreme candy in orange sherbet flavor and the "peas" are green apple flavor. The clever packaging of a "can" of Peas & Carrots makes a fun basket-filler come springtime or a tasty gift for any occasion.
Novelty shapes of mellocreme candy go back to the 1880s when candy corn was first invented.
Jelly Belly Chocolate Dips are gluten-free, gelatin-free and certified OU Dairy Kosher. They are shipping to stores nationwide now and are available online at JellyBelly.com.
Peas & Carrots Mix is dairy-free, gluten-free and certified OU Kosher. They will begin to ship to stores nationwide by February.
