Jelly Belly jellybeans

What would you do with your weight in Jelly Belly Jellybeans? Well, if you’re Mike Lively, the answer is “figure out how to get them home”. Mike, a 41 year old Indiana steel worker, was the 1,000,000th visitor to the Jelly Belly factory in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin this past Wednesday, and he won his weight in Jelly Beans.

Mike won 288 pounds of Jelly Beans, though he claims he only weighs 278 pounds. Wednesday was also his birthday, making the jellybeans a nice alternative to a birthday cake. Here are some random facts about 288 pounds of Jelly Belly jellybeans (if we did the math right):

  • 288 pounds of jellybeans is approximately 115,200 jellybeans
  • 115,200 jellybeans is about 460,800 calories
  • it takes Jelly Belly 5.5 minutes to make 115,200 jellybeans (at 347 beans a second)

You can take your own virtual tour of the Jelly Belly factory, but we’re pretty sure you won’t win your weight in jellybeans for doing it.
