    So fun! Definitely check out the self guided tours. If you want a lot of jelly beans, get the belly flops. They're significantly cheaper at the factory

    Realized a personal lifetime objective by visiting. I can't say I was overwhelmed though, maybe because I was there on a day when the factory was idle. Still, for Jelly Belly fans, it's a must.

    Don't recommend going on the tour on the weekend, factory workers are off. There were some parents that took their kids out early because their kids were bored/crying. Free samples though!

    Reserve spots in the factory tour ahead of time. They're small (up to 6 people) tours of the inside of the factory. You can easily get 4 times the free samples you'd get in the other tours.

    Note worthy is that the belly flop sale location also sells items that were tried but sometimes not successful (in the US), so you can score some quite tasty uncommon candy from them!

    The original eight flavors of jelly belly beans introduced in 1976 were very cherry, root beer, cream soda, tangerine, green apple, lemon, licorice and grape. It takes 7-21 days to produce each one.

    Muss man gesehen haben. Kein Eintritt und gratis Verköstigung. Früh da sein, dann ist nicht so überfüllt. Die Beans aber zu Preisen wie sonst wo. Die Beans mit Fehlern bekommt man woanders günstiger.
