Dave!Now that I'm back in the office, I'm opening up all the lovely holiday business gifts that companies sent to me while I was traveling. They're all pretty great, and some of them are remarkable in their extravagance, but one of the gifts has captured my heart...

A jar of gourmet jellybeans.

I love jellybeans, and having a big jar of them sitting on my desk is a real treat. Even if I end up going into a sugar coma because I am addicted to eating them one after the other.

The problem is that I don't like mixing the flavors, so half of my time is spent picking out the same color beans to eat. It makes me wish that there was somebody you could hire to come organize all your jellybeans and toss out all the flavors you don't like (for me that would be coffee and licorice)...

Professional Jellybean Sorter

And now I'm off to wash clothes because there's not a clean pair of underwear left in the house.

Though I suppose there's nothing wrong with going commando on the weekend.

    I’m with you on needing a jellybean sorter. I love all the red flavors and it’s running joke in our house about how the jar of jellybeans has absolutely zero red ones in it because I pick them all out. I can leave every other color alone just give me the reds!

  2. Tori says:

    oooh…. i love the coffee & black licorice ones! you can save them for me!!!

  3. lexi says:

    I love love going to Meijer here, because they have a huge JellyBelly thingee w/each individual flavor in its own huge chute….so you can buy in bulk the kinds you like. Yum, buttered popcorn…

  4. What are you talking about? I go commando all the time. It’s not just for weekends anymore.


  5. Dagny says:

    Kind of like an official taster. I like that.

  6. Elizabeth says:

    Yum! I will happily take those licorice ones off your hands for ya. And any spare cream soda ones you don’t want ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Mrs RW says:

    Feel free to save the coffee and licorice ones for me. I’ll even send postage for them.

    PS: Do you ever get the chance to be home for more than a week at a stretch? Someone should really invent disposable clothes so that you can just throw them away instead of coming home with a suitcase full of dirty clothes. Or at the very least, disposable underwear…

  8. You don’t like coffee jellybeans?! Sacrilege!

  9. Eileen Dover says:

    A bunch of guys on Aussie radio decided to eat one of every Jelly Belly to see which was the dominant flavour.

    … and honestly, I’m interested, are you daring enough to do the same? I have a hunch it would be cinnamon.

  10. Suzy says:

    Thanks for mentioning jellybeans when it’s raining here and I’m in for the night. I curse you and the licorice jellybeans that you’re so callously throwing away.

  11. Gรถran says:

    going commando! You are such an Italian at times ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Adena says:

    Send the licorice ones to me!! mmmmm!

  13. Hilly says:

    “Anybody got anymore jellybeans?”

    Erm, I mean..I like red ones, lime ones and chocolate ones ;).

  14. I don’t like the coffee and licorice jelly beans either. However, I do enjoy commando.

  15. ChillyWilly says:

    Commando Jelly Bean Weekend… starring Dave and Bad Monkey.

    Are they true JellyBellys or just another brand of gourmet jelly beans?

  16. Mad William says:

    You have got to love clients that send Jellybeans.

    Someone should make a machine like a coinstar that sorts Jellies. Jellystar. It’s the wave of the Jellybean future.

    You heard it hear first.

  17. Baak says:

    Looks to me like you just caught Bad Monkey – on film – getting into your jellybeans! Bad Monkey!

    Unless you’re sharing.

    Which I imagine you would. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. borysSNORC says:

    Ah! Finally an anal retentive jelly bean connoisseur after my own heart. Mixing colours (and thereby flavours) is for the plebs ๐Ÿ™‚


  19. Michelle says:

    Can’t you have that written into your contract? Remember Van Halen having the brown M & M’s out of their bowls backstage? It can be done.

  20. Wayne says:

    Eww! Coffee Licorice!

    At my local H.E.B. they have a gourmet jellybean endcap with 20+ flavors, but they’re all separated for you. So you just get a bag and pick the colors you LIKE. Then pay by the pound.

    How sweet is that?

  21. mew says:

    what are your favorite jelly bean flavors?

  22. ajooja says:

    I used to go commando all the time, but there’s nothing like being somewhere relatively important with a pee spot on your pants. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Lisa says:

    I just love the Bad Monkey cartoon…he looks so cute with his organized piles of jelly beans.

    I’ve never met a flavor of JBs I didn’t like.

  24. suze says:

    Jelly belly jelly beans are my absolute favourite candy ever. I think I’d even chose them over chocolate. Which is saying a lot. What an awesome gift!

  25. bogup says:

    Yep, I sort ’em too but often get the similar colors into the wrong pile. Ain’t it horrible when ya bite into a red one thinking it’s cherry, then finding out it is fire hot pepper? Note to self: always sort in ample light area…

  26. Laurence says:

    I don’t like the black ones but I like the red ones. ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. I have given up underwear in 2008. Skanky? Probably. Oh well.

  28. Avitable says:

    Flavored jellybeans are awesome. I love the buttered popcorn ones especially.

  29. Bec says:

    I used to love to separate them out until I got heavily into the recipes…
