In all my candy-loving life, I never imagined that jelly beans would be drinkable, but here we are. Jelly Belly has released a jelly-bean-flavored sparkling water, according to a press release, and it already comes in eight familiar flavors that are bound to bring back childhood memories of sneaking sweet treats from the pantry before dinner.
Made with carbonated water and natural flavors, the 12-ounce candy-inspired drinks have zero sugar, zero sweeteners, zero sodium, and zero calories. So having a sip of one of these just might satisfy your candy cravings, minus the sugar high. Flavors include French Vanilla, Lemon Lime, Orange Sherbet, Piña Colada, Pink Grapefruit, Tangerine, Very Cherry, and Watermelon — and my sweet tooth is so ready.
I'm planning to take this childhood flavor transformation one step further and try it as a mixer the next chance I get. Who knows? Maybe orange sherbet is the cocktail flavor we've been missing out on all along. Take a sneak peek at Jelly Belly's sparkling water flavors — available at Hy-Vee stores and on jellybelly.com — ahead.
