Jelly Belly has been turning out flavor rich jelly beans for decades now. So when I saw Jelly Belly gourmet soda I figured that they would be able to transfer that flavor to a carbonated drink. The first flavor I tried was their strawberry jam. This drink is sweetened with cane sugar and contains only natural flavors.
Wow, was that disappointing. First off, I don’t know what makes this strawberry jam over just regular strawberry. Second, the flavor was much weaker than I thought it would be. In fact, I didn’t think it was better than any other mass produce super market strawberry soda pop. Where is that flavor punch that Jelly Belly is so well known for. Do yourself a favor and buy the strawberry jam jelly beans not the “gourmet” soda.
