So the way I see it is this is what spring tastes like to the folks at Jelly Belly. I can't say that I'm a little apprehensive; after all these guys did make the worst tasting Jelly Bean I've ever eaten (vomit). So I'm a little concerned that I'll pour a few of these into my mouth and realise that it taste a little like my garden does right now.

I figure the point of these is that the mix creates the felling of spring in your mouth and since I can't eat the whole bottle in one mouthful I'll examine each mouthful separately. The first mouthful was kind of citrusy at first but then it got a little perfume like (it tasted like perfume) something I’m not a big fan of. It could possibly be a fake melon flavour that didn't mix well.

My second handful was much larger; I wanted to get the full range. It started off with a bit of a sour taste then it blended nicely into a citrus type flavour again, not too bad. But wait, there's more, that melon perfume taste returned slightly and really didn't work for me.

I guess what I'm saying is the flavours at first are a nice blend, but after a few chews there's this new flavour that overpowers and just ruins the whole thing. The bottle that it comes in is a little difficult to poor out the Jelly Bellies too, but that's a good thing because it forces you to enjoy the mix and doesn't allow you to be choosy.
