Trader Joe’s Sour Jelly beans

Are they really sour? Uh...YES. YES THEY ARE.

Everyone likes jelly beans right? Nope. Very much wrong.

Not a super inspiring name for these things, but sometimes….a name is just a name. And come to think of it, how many shitty varieties of jelly beans have YOU tried in your life? 4? 12? Generally speaking, they’re boring. Brach’s is boring, hell, even the crown jewel of the jelly bean world, Jelly Bellies CAN be a bit boring sometimes, despite being “the best.” So what the hell are these beans from Ireland gonna do for me?

Ooh, opalescent!

With colors AND flavors from nature…these things had an uphill battle from the time I ripped open the bag. Not that natural flavors don’t taste great if done well, but sometimes they can be a bit flat. But here’s the surprising thing: these are LEGIT sour. Like…OMG what’s in my mouth sour at first. And the flavors are good-but it’s the sour power that really makes these great. Yeah, I said it: great.

The outside has a bit of crunch to it, and from there? It’s sour town, baby. Then they chill just a bit, and then it’s gone, shooting down your intestinal tract to their final reward.

Hey, cut me some slack, it’s been a minute since I wrote a review.

Point is: look in your TJ’s “new items” section and pick a few bags of these up if you’re a sour fan. If you’re one of those “why isn’t anything sour enough?” sour fans? You NEED to try these and let us know what you think.

Also, these are made in Ireland because well because. So we’re betting these are white labeled from another bean brand. Know which one? Let us know in the comments.
