WTF? $500 a jar gourmet jelly beans
Sometimes I wonder if things in this world are getting a little out of hand…
Jelly Belly founder David Klein has partnered with Leaf Brands to unveil the gold leaf-coated “Beyond Gourmet Jelly Beans” which are sold in crystal jars and claim inspiration from “food deconstructionists” José Andrés and Ferran Adrià.
Leaf Brands describes the beans as “…literally an exotic trip around the world though the sense of taste via never-before-tasted jelly bean flavors… Imagine creating a Thai Lemongrass Curry or an Indian Mango Chutney dish by constructing complex dishes in your mouth, and giving it an explosion of taste that hits all your senses.”
Apparently these will be sold at around $500 a jar. I doubt they will be available at the local candy shop. I can’t wait for the wine gum version.
