Belly flops - misshapen Jelly Belly sweets 120g for 99p (in 99p store!)

55
Found 1st Apr 2014
Went into a 99p store in Havant today and found these. I've never seen them before but they appear to be a great way of getting jelly belly sweets cheaply. They taste no different but are either two sweets of same flavour stuck together or slightly irregular in shape.

Hope this is national, not sure they are always available as they sell them off in batches I believe.

Info on jelly belly website tells you more if you are interested (or want to check these aren't fake!)

They sell them in Poundland too sometimes. And a 1kg bag in Selfridges!

Oooh, love these!

Cheers sharkmark... Might have to pop into Havant before work tomorrow!

Home bargains do these in a plastic tub, much cheaper than jelly belly prices

Jelly Bellys were first produced in 1976, and the The Jelly Bean Factory opened in California in 1978.

I can't find a date for The Jelly Bean Factory UK, which just happens to be based in Ireland.

I think Jelly Belly are the rightful owners of the "Orignal" title...

...and mugs have been paying £3 for a tiny bag of flavoured gelatine and sugar ever since.

jelly bean snobbery

jelly belly ones are vegetarian. Most others have pig or cow in.

actually almost all jelly beans are vegetarian it's most of the other chewy sweets that contain gelatine.

But many places had to stop selling them because they contain genetically modified soya. On the other hand they taste amazing!

Nope every official Jelly Belly bean has to be stamped. The flops are either ones were the stamp was off centre, missed, blurred or had something wrong during manufacture (stuck together, wrong flavour for colour or misshapen).
You can clearly see the stamp on most jelly flops.
The ones your talking about (jelly stones or something like that) do look like some of the jelly flops, but I've never seen a stamp on them.
Jelly Bean Factory is not the same as Jelly Belly, they don't taste as nice nor have the variety.

Jelly flops are nice, but I've found they tend to be dominated by one or two flavours, which is great if you like the flavour not so much if you don't.

Oh I got these a few weeks ago, meant to post but forgot

It's strange how neither of you thought it would be good to mention the cost. Persuasive? I think not. >.>

Some people are just a little stupid, no offence. The person who made this thread even told you about them and everything yet you still insist they are fake. Please read the details and look at the webpage.

I really can't remember (they're sold out online). I have a feeling it was about £10 though. I bought them, and I don't think I'd have paid much more than that! X)

Perhaps these are the ones that the Jelly Belly quality assurance team have had a little suck on?

That is some very clever marketing to call them "Belly Flops" heat added just for that alone, great way of selling misshapes.

They're pretty much unbranded Jelly Beans, but like these Jelly Flops 'misshaped'.

Edited by: "Si__" 2nd Apr 2014

Belly Flops aren't the "real" thing anyway. They are made specially out in Thailand. They are made to be mishaped.

It's like buying stuff in the Next Sale which has never even seen the inside of a Next store......

If you want the best Jelly Beans, you need to look for Gimbals......trust me on this one.

Just because they are made in the same factory does mean the product is the same.
Different branded items will be made to different specifications based on requirements and recipes.

Jelly belly is pricey but worth it, apparently less sugar and more juice so the healthy option!

I wonder how many you need to eat before you're had one of your 5 a day? Several of those 1kg tubs from Selfridges I suspect. Even more than that if they're coffee flavour.
