Everybody loves Jelly Beans!

Everybody loves Jelly Beans! Especially the Horseradish, Grass, Black Pepper, Sardine....and yes, Booger. Bertie Bott's Every-Flavor Beans are now a reality. (From The Leaky Cauldron)

I don't know if I want to know what Booger tastes like.

I was just going o say, the pear and booger beans lok too damn similar. Still, I am intrigued, will some really taste awful?

I tried all of them last night. Booger doesn't really taste like anything. It's the least disgusting of them all.

Not sure if I had a sardine in the batch I tried but there was definitely a few Horseradish, Black Pepper, and Grass. The Black Pepper was the strongest of the "odd" flavors and the Grass actually tasted grassy. The Horseradish could have used more of a kick though.

mmmmm... booger...

I wonder if that's gonna put the kaibosh(sp?) on my phlegm flavored gum idea...

The thought of eating a booger flavored jelly bean makes me too nauseous to ever actually eat one, no matter what it really tastes like.

Grass sounds kind of yummy though. I imagine it would taste like green tea ice cream.

And of course, you *knew* who they were made by.

And the usual spelling seems to be "kibosh".

Any ton-tongue in there?

Heh.....Baylink - No Ton-Tongue Toffee however I hear Cap Candy is hard at work with Wizards of the Coast on "Chocolate Frogs" and trading cards to go with them.

I'm guessing they're going through what could be found on the Hogwarts Express "candy" cart rather than Weasley's Wizard Wheezes. They're sticking to book 1 stuff right now, in synch with the movie.

I read that as "Everybody loves Jelly Beans! Especially the Hashish" and it was a lot more entertaining..

So we're going to have to wait a few years for bottled Butterbeer?
