The other night, at my client's house, I noticed that a dish of gourmet jelly beans had been put out on an entry table.
I grabbed a handful on my way to the kitchen. Pink tasted like cotton candy. Purple like grapes. Blue like some kind of sweet heaven.
I was instantly transported to the year Jelly Bellys launched and I became obsessed with Jelly beans. My father used to take me to a candy store where huge bins dispensed coconut, pineapple and bubble gum flavored jelly beans. We'd hold white paper bags under the spouts and fill them, part way, then look at each other.
"A little more?"
