JellyBelly Soda Pop Shoppe

Jelly Belly has teamed up with several soda brands to create a new line of soda pop flavored Jelly Beans. These are fairly new, and I picked some of them up at the Philly Candy Show I went to a while back, but they should be available in stores now. I’ve always been a huge fan of soda, not necessarily the ones in this mix, but as a lover pretty much anything carbonated and flavored, I present to you my review.

The soda brands represented here are: Orange Crush, A&W Root Beer, Dr. Pepper, 7Up, A&W Cream Soda, and Grape Crush. They come in both a 3.5 mixed variety bag, or by the individual flavor in miniature bottle-shaped containers (seen above), as well as some other sizes too.

How do they taste? Pretty spot on, with the exception of the A&W Cream Soda:

  • Grape Crush: My favorite out of the whole batch is the Grape Crush, which is weird because I don’t really like Grape Soda. It always feels like it is rotting my teeth as soon as I take a sip, a feeling I oddly don’t get when shoving Jelly Beans in my mouth. It also reminds me of Grape Bubblicious.
  • Orange Crush: tastes like a super-sweet tangerine… really good.
  • Dr. Pepper: tastes slightly fruitier than the drink. I can’t nail it down, but it’s something like cherry or strawberry.Still good though.
  • 7UP: tastes much sweeter and more lime than the drink, but still very close to the drink. My package seems to be predominately 7UP for some reason.
  • A&W Cream Soda: tastes like… practically nothing. Well, maybe nothing mixed with a tiny bit of vanilla mixed in. Maybe they forgot to add the flavor to my pack, but they really just taste like nothing.

Overall, these are pretty good, and fairly accurate, except for the Cream Soda. If you’re a fan of soft drinks, pick some of these up and give chewing some soda a try.

    Those really grossed me out when I tried them at the All Candy Expo. I would say my fav. if any out of the pack was the orange.

    Those look good. And soda is essentially just liquid candy anyway, so it goes perfectly. I wish there were a coke and/or cherry coke flavor.

    And there has to be some sort of good use for those bottles when you’re done with them.

    You forgot to mention the Root Beer!

    ….even though it’s really not a new Jelly Belly flavor. Or the cream soda for that matter.

    I bought some of these from a bin mix at my local candy store. 7up was the dominant flavor in the mix too, I wonder why that is?

    I thought they were all good, grape being my least favorite.

    I’ve been buying and eating Dr. Pepper jelly bellies for a few years now (I first noticed them in a Smiths Food and Drug about 4 years ago I believe), and love them! Perhaps they just started promoting them better?

    Though I miss the fizzy quality of the drink, they’ve done a great job in catching the essence of the flavor of Dr. Pepper. Since we’re big fans of the Dr. here in Utah (where I live), it seems that all my friends enjoy a hand-full of these little sweeties. Once again, love your blog. :)

    Brian, I am trying to find the soda pop shoppe jelly bellies in the little soda pop bottles like the picture on your site. I can’t find any place to buy them. Can you tell me where I can buy them????

    Brian says:

    @Kim: I just poked around and the only places I could find online that had them sell them by the 24 pack (see new links above). I *think* I have seen them in stores – either Wal-Mart; Bed, Bath, and Beyond; or Toys R Us.(Can you tell I’m married and have a kid?)

    Wow, I got mostly 7ups in my bag, too. Good thing though, they’re my favorite.

    to me, the 7ups tasted like the lemon lime flavor, which strongly resembles gatorade
