Day 8: Jelly Belly Factory

This morning we left the campground around 10am and headed to the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield, CA. Once there we took the free tour of the factory. It was fun to see the Jelly Belly beans being made. The really fun part, though, was the store with all the varieties of Jelly Belly to sample and make your own mixes to purchase.

We bought 10 pounds of the Jelly Belly flops (i.e. the rejects mostly because of them being misshaped) for $27. I also got a mix of my favorite flavors (Pomegranate, Dark Chocolate, Toasted Marshmallow, and Buttered Popcorn). Mik got a mix of the sour flavors he likes. He also made a mix of sour gummy worms, sour gummy bears, and sour trout. Dad got some Sunkist fruit gems. Lastly we got a Classic Licorice assortment for Mom. See our almost $70 haul below. Now we are all stocked up on candy for the trip.

We also had a great lunch in the Jelly Belly cafe. Will write more on that in a Mik's Food Scrapbook post later. We are now headed to San Francisco for the Giants game tonight. It is the last baseball game for the May part of our trip, as we do not get to the Seattle Mariners game until June 1.
