  1. Absolutely! Jelly Bellies are the best jelly beans I have ever tasted. Their flavors are as true-to-life as you can get - the juicy pear bean tastes just like the real thing, the key lime pie bean has pieces of graham cracker crust in it, etc. And the buttered popcorn ones will amaze you! (If you like popcorn, that is!) They're awesome - give 'em a try! (And no, I don't work for Jelly Belly!)

      Has anyone seen an OU on these products yet?

        I'll check, but I know they've always been kosher. I'll let you know if I find an OU.

          I just posted I saw them with an OU-I have the buttered popcorn one!

            Yes, Jelly Bellies are the best tasting thing ever put in a bean shape. The pear is my favorite, too, but I can really skip the buttered popcorn, Please pass me the Dr. Pepper flavor, though.

            The previous heksher was KO which is not universally accepted.

              I dunno, but everywhere I've seen these in the NYC area they still carry the KO hechsher not the OU...?

                Here in CA they have an OU. Of course, the plant is in northern California.
