    My son got me a bag of Jelly belly beans..just a mixed bag...so I dumped in a bowl and then caught myself picking them out one at a time AND feeding anything brown or black to the dogs....hehehe

    how do you eat your beans??

    PS, I really prefer the Mango Chili ones and the Cinnamon mixed with those...spicy goodness!

    I only buy black ones, so I don't have to ferret around the bowl.

    Oh, those brown ones with the white spots are delicious. Love them, but first I go to the white ones with yellow spots, the Buttered Popcorn. Then a red one, and so on, one at a time so I can try to identify them without checking on the back of the container.

    Nice for sucking on driving long distances, that and a diet Pepsi with a lot of ice.

    I love the black and brown ones. No one else in my family will touch the black ones, so I get all of them for myself!

    I love jelly beans although I rarely buy them. I eat them one by one savoring the taste.

    I pick out all the black ones and avoid anything red or brown. Scared of the cinnamon or rootbeer flavored ones.

    Oh we should get together over jelly beans and I can be the dog and eat all the black ones, the real dog can have the brown ones except the ones with white specks and you can have all the cinnamon and chilli mango ones your heart desires.

    I thought you meant how do you actually EAT them. lol

    I eat whatever I grab HOWEVER... I pop it in my mouth and "crack" all the outside coating off of it then I eat the jelly center part seperatly! I do the same thing with peanut M&M's!

    Weird, I know!

    I just eat them as they come (usually three or four at once!) but GOM picks out the colours - red first, then black, and so on.

    I eat them one at a time, "duplicates first", trying to even out how many colors are left. I have no idea why!

    But though I love coffee, I hate coffee-flavored jelly beans and discard those.

    I reach in and grab a handful. Then I sort them into like colors to eat, starting with my least fav and ending with my favs. Since I have a mint allergy, I have to be very careful with the mixed bags.

    Jelly beans are my second favorite sweet treat with marshmallow being first.

    When I get a bag of jelly beans,I eat all the orange ones first..they're my favorite. Then I eat my next favorite...red...and then purple followed by white, yellow and pink. By that time I feel sick and guilty! So I leave the green and black for DH. I don't want him to feel left out and besides, I don't like the green or black!

    I tend to get old fashion jellybeans. They come in either a fruit mix or spice mix; I go for the spice mix. The white jellybeans in the spice mix are clove flavored and I really like those. My next favorite would be the black licorice ones. I normally grab a handful out of the bowl and sort them. I see how many sets of beans I can make with one of each color. I eat the beans that were extra, didn't make it into a set. Then I eat a set, eating the least favorite flavor to the most favorite, then I eat the next set...

    I think I like the clove flavored one because they remind me of Necco Wafers, the white in those is also clove flavored.
