Jelly Belly



One of the pride of Fairfield, California is the Jelly Belly factory. There is a free tour of the factory everyday from 9am to 5pm. Since we were already there I told hubby that we have to check it out before we go home. We arrived there around 11am already and there was a long line. We were informed that it could take an hour of waiting before it will be our turn to tour around.

The factory is pretty nice and clean. We were shown its history and the process of how jelly belly is being made. They have art work display of different personality which is made up of jelly belly which I think is really cool and creative. Including in the art work is then Pres. Reagan, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and many others. I enjoyed the tour and we got samples at the end.

After the tour we had lunch at the restaurant where they served sandwiches and pizza in a jelly bean shape. The kids would really enjoy it. They have some fun stuff too inside the factory and you can buy truck load sale of jelly belly in their store. It was a great day and we had a lot of fun.

How fun!

We toured a Jelly Belly distribution center in Wisconsin a couple of years ago. They had some really weird flavors ... ie "Vomit" and "Dirt" etc.

I'm sure they has some amazing mosaics made of jelly beans!
