So this is the first time I've ever reviewed Jelly Bellies. You'd think I would have done it a while ago, the problem was always the selection, and for the first and maybe only time in my life it was due to over selection. So after working it out, and limiting my choices down I decided to finally review Buttered Popcorn Jelly Bellies.

Now the thing about these treats is if you eat one you're in for a big surprise, the surprise being that they actually kind of taste like buttered popcorn. I can't put my finger on why it does but it just does. Of coarse you have to ask yourself if this is in fact a pleasant thing. Many people would say no, but I have to disagree, I kind of like these little beans.

It could be because I am a huge fan of buttered popcorn, and I've even been known to try a few recipes for popcorn that include both butter and sugar. So these generally do ok for me. I guess I also have to hand it to Jelly Belly for creating such a flavour, although now they have a whole bunch of strange flavours, this was one of their first really odd one and it still holds up today.
