Jelly Bellies

My very first posting on my new blogspot.
I left livejournal for this hip, happenin' space on the world wide web. So far, I'm disappointed and frustrated. I tried and tried to figure out how on earth to post a picture in my profile, but I just couldn't get it. I also think that blogspot is having issues with posting pictures in general right now so maybe I'll try 'er out tomorrow.
But if anyone knows how I'm supposed to get a picture in my profile...please let me know.
But anyway, apparently not everyone knows what a jelly belly is (aka, Jamie!). It's a delicious, smaller-than-usual jelly bean that comes in a plethora of delectable flavours - in reference to my blog URL, the green usually being green apple but could also mean: sour green apple, watermelon, sour watermelon, jalapeno, juicy pear, kiwi, margarita, lemon lime, mango (which is really yellow with green speckles and splotches) and believe it or not, grass and spinach.
The wonderful world of jelly bellies. It really is a Willy Wonka paradise.
If you don't believe me, check out for all flavour listings.
My LEAST favourite jelly bellies (taken only from the 50 original flavours) are:
  1. buttered popcorn - if I wanted to eat popcorn, I'd eat it. But I'm eating candy. I want a candy flavour. But I guess you could say the same for the other flavours; I dunno, to me it just tastes WRONG.
  2. peanut butter - yuck. I hate peanut butter. Or at least this jelly belly version of it. Normally I'm a big fan of the stuff...but not in a jelly bean.
  3. tied for 3rd is tutti frutti and sizzling cinnamon. Tutti frutti tastes so...plastic. I can't think of a better word to describe it. And sizzling cinnamon just sizzles my mouth right off. After that I can't taste some of the better jelly bellies to be had.

Sigh. I still have much to learn about the jelly belly business. I think it's time for some research.
