Q:

Where can you buy Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans?

A:

The Jelly Belly Candy Company manufactures Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, and distributes them through the Jelly Belly website, various retailers, and candy shops, as well as through Honeydukes at the Harry Potter Theme Park at Universal Orlando. Jelly Belly creates these jelly beans to include normal flavors along with the creepy and unusual flavors mentioned in the Harry Potter series.

The characters in the Harry Potter movies have a love-hate relationship with these jelly beans. Harry's introduction is on his first ride on the Hogwarts Express where other creepy snacks are available, including jelly slugs. Dumbledore, upon observing Harry's beans, comments that he had the unfortunate experience of coming across a vomit-flavored bean and no longer enjoys them.

The Civil War is the first historic appearance of jelly beans. They have a center similar to Turkish delight, a candy appearing hundreds of years earlier. The harder exterior candy shell is similar to a Jordan almond. The basic ingredients include sugar, corn syrup and corn starch. They also have trace amounts of anti-foaming agents, lecithin, wax, salt and confectioner's glaze. Flavors and colors vary by the bean. While manufacturers package most jelly beans in packs of eight or fewer flavors, Bertie Bott's beans have 20 flavors.
