Tempt, torture taste buds at Jelly Belly tour bus stop in Tacoma

The Jelly Belly tour bus will serve up fun and adventure during a visit Thursday to Tacoma.

Jelly Belly fans, kids, candy connoisseurs and daring souls can taste favorite jelly beans as well as the candy manufacturer’s most unusual flavors when the tour bus stops from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at the Tacoma Top Food & Drug store, 3130 S. 23rd St., Tacoma.

Jelly Belly representatives will answer questions while offering fun and prizes during the visit. Fearless eaters can spin a special wheel and try to figure out the “good” flavor – or risk eating a yucky one.

“Try the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled collection to compare some of the company’s tastiest, most popular flavors with its craziest ones,” a Jelly Belly news release states. “The Black Licorice bean looks exactly like the Skunk Spray bean! Sweet, luscious Caramel Corn might also be Moldy Cheese.”

The bus will stop Friday at the Olympia Top Foods store and Saturday at the Lacey Top Foods. Both events run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Jelly Belly bus paid a recent visit to a Haggen grocery store in Bellingham. Read about that event here.
