Jelly Belly Jewel Collection

The new collection includes the following flavors: Jewel Blueberry, Jewel Bubble Gum, Jewel Sour Apple, Jewel Cream Soda, Jewel Berry

Blue, Jewel Orange and Jewel Very Cherry.

“The appearance is so gorgeous that it has applications to all kinds of fun parties and celebrations,” says Tomi Holt, director of communications for Jelly Belly. “Consumers can match the color palette of their event to the new beans and create something elegant.”

The true-to-life flavors can be mixed and matched to create the right gift, centerpiece or favor for any occasion. From weddings to baby showers to birthday parties, the Jewel Collection gives any celebration a little more luster.

The Jelly Belly Jewel Collection is available online and at the company’s visitor and tour center in California. The candies will be available nationwide at candy stores, gourmet food, gift and specialty stores beginning in May.

I never thought this combination would sell. Candy looking like jewelry was the last on my mind but it looks like I was wrong. They really look like they are too beautiful to be eaten. In fact some of them look like some eye catching products I saw on http://quadrumgallery.com/category/. Funny, ha?
