Jelly Belly’s jelly beans are great! Watermelon is my favorite flavor so when I found out that Jelly Belly made a watermelon flavored endurance nutrition, I thought I had found my new go-to. Wrong, wrong, WRONG. The flavor was sickly sweet and had a weird, slightly bitter, aftertaste, possibly due to the added caffeine, vitamins and electrolytes. The portion size was huge considering I was only able to eat one or two beans at a time because they stuck to my teeth and required a lot of chewing to break down. Perhaps it was the disdain for the flavor in my mouth, but I did not feel an energy boost after eating these. All I wanted to do was cut my run short so I could go home and brush my teeth.
If you like Jelly Belly’s Sport Beans, make sure you have your dentist on speed dial.
