Fairfield's Jelly Belly
has just introduced a line of cane sugar-sweetened soda, available at local Walgreen's stores
. The introductory price ($4 for four) is decent, and natural flavors keep it from being too sickly tasting, but the artificial added neon color is a definite detractor. After we finish our four-pack, we'll probably stick to the company's Soda Pop Shoppe
line of candies, also new. One of the greatest joys of going to the actual Jelly Belly factory
is the chance to purchase bags of misshapen and stuck-together beans, called "Belly Flops," but we don't know how they'll do that with soda.
