It took me a bit to get a hold of the new Jelly Belly Chocolate Dips. I was sent samples by the company, but they were sent to the wrong address by accident and they disappeared on me. So, instead, I waited until I could buy them in stores by myself. I must confess that I bought them when I first saw them, and that was a few months ago now. I photographed all the packaged and the candies, then, I started to mindlessly nibble on them and once I got around to review them. I only had the “Very Cherry” flavor left. Whoops.
These “Very Cherry” Jelly Belly Chocolate Dips claim to the Jelly Belly we all know and love, just covered in rich dark chocolate. Yes, it is real dark chocolate too. I checked the ingredients list.
The beans are pretty to look at. They’re the same size as normal jelly belly beans, perhaps just a bit larger. The bag smells of sweet chocolate with no hint of the Jelly Belly flavor at all. The chocolate has a bright gloss to it, so the beans are very shiny and attractive.
The jelly beans taste pretty awesome. They are soft and chewy, and the chocolat melts easily in your mouth. The flavor is sweet of the chocolate at first. it’s slightly chocolately and i felt it really just fell aside compared to the actual jelly bean flavor. The cherry flavor is intense and delightful. It’s jammy and fruity and really is the prominent flavor. the chocolate really just compliments it with some sweetness. The cherry flavor pairs well with the chocolate and it’s a fun combination.
From what I can remember, the Orange variety of the Chocolate Dips is similar to the cherry bean. The chocolate is nice, but the orange flavor really overshadows it. The orange is bright and citrusy, and pairs with the sweetness of the chocolate beautifully. Sadly that’s all I remember!
If you’re a Jelly Belly lover and are looking for something a little more substantial, or if you’re looking for something that’s just a tad different, these are the beans for you. I enjoyed them a lot, and I think these will be incorporated into my Easter candies this year.
