The famous Jelly Belly Candy Company churns out over 16 billion Jelly Bellies each year. For a confection so tiny and numerous, each Jelly Belly found in bulk or bag is surprisingly uniform in size and shape. That’s because the company has methods of finding and extracting the rebel beans that don’t follow the rules or make the cut. 

But since the Jelly Belly Candy Company is a magnanimous company, they don’t destroy their rejects. Instead, they give them a second chance at life as Jelly Belly Belly Flops Irregular Jelly Beans.

Less known and harder to find than their conformist siblings, these guys certainly got the Island of Misfit Toys thing going on, and I think that’s why I like them.

Good luck trying to find them. They’re worth it.
