Sweet Assorted Jelly Belly Beans with Different Flavors

Jelly beans are chewy bean-shaped candies with a sugar coating and gel filling. And while plenty of brands make something similar, Jelly Belly reigns supreme.

They have the perfect ratio of coating to filling (the cheaper brands usually have a much thicker outer shell), and they also have the most exciting flavors.

From the ever-popular cherry and sweet strawberry daiquiri to the more unique chili mango and sizzling cinnamon, these Jelly Belly flavors are sure to please kids and adults alike.

Red Cherries on a white background

1. Very Cherry Jelly Belly 

Cherry is the most quintessential Jelly Belly flavor around. And it’s been considered the most popular for decades.

It has a decent cherry flavor that’s bright and fruity. And you can’t beat that stunning color.

Combine two very cherry beans with a chocolate pudding bean for a delicious chocolate-covered cherry treat. 

There’s never enough of these little red beans in the bag!

2. Piña Colada

This tropical candy bean has a pretty good flavor, and the pineapple and coconut notes invoke memories of vacations past.

I mean, is there anything more tropical than a frosty piña colada? I don’t think so!

It’s creamy, tangy, and delightfully fruity.

3. Strawberry Daiquiri

This juicy jelly bean is pretty tasty. Better yet, it has a very similar flavor to its namesake cocktail. 

The strawberry daiquiri Jelly Belly tastes like strawberries with a very subtle creaminess.

It almost tastes alcoholic, but in a sweet, candy-like way that’s 100% rum-free.

Mix a strawberry daiquiri bean with a raspberry and a blueberry bean, and you’ll make a delicious berry smoothie mix. 

Sliced Pear Graphic

4. Juicy Pear

Juicy pear Jelly Bellys are bright green and speckled, just like the skin of a fresh, ripe pear.

They’re also white in the middle to resemble the fruit even more.

But it doesn’t end there. Jelly Belly also uses real pear juice for these little green beans, so the flavor is delicious!

It’s sweet, refreshing, and juicy. What’s not to love?

Try a juicy pear and raspberry bean for a scrumptious and fruity combination. 

Watermelon Illustration

5. Watermelon

Watermelon is such a fun, summery jelly bean.

It’s dark green on the outside and bright red on the inside, so it’s always easy to find in a mixed jar of Jelly Bellys. 

I wouldn’t say that eating this jelly bean flavor is exactly like eating fresh watermelon on a hot sunny day.

But, I would say that this chewy watermelon-flavored bean has a refreshing flavor that any watermelon fan will adore.

Blueberry Illustration

6. Berry Blue

This one is a beautifully colored bean.

The icy blue stands out among the other beans in that candy jar. But no, it’s not blueberry flavor.

Instead, it’s a mix of berry flavors, making it sweet, fruity, and irresistible.

Berry blue may not be on the top of anybody’s favorites list, but it’s universally loved.

Try mixing two berry blue beans with two lemon beans. It creates a flavor that resembles berry lemonade. Yum!

Sliced Green Apple Illustration

7. Green Apple 

This is a bright green bean with wonderful green apple juice flavors.

Always a crowd favorite, it’s sweet, pleasantly tart, and one of those classic flavors people search for. 

Try combining two green apple beans with one cinnamon jelly bean. The result is a spectacular candy apple flavor!

Assorted Bubblegum Illustration

8. Tutti-Fruitti

This is an unmistakable and easily recognizable flavor of jelly bean. 

It’s bright pink with colorful spots. And while it’s a classic, I’m not convinced it’s a favorite.

Have you ever hunted through a pack of beans for this one? Me either.

Plus, although the name is “tutti-fruitti,” I would say this has more of a bubblegum flavor. 

Riped Mango Graphics

9. Chili Mango

One of the more unique Jelly Belly flavors is chili mango.

This is probably at the top of my list. I adore mango, and I love spice – so it’s a no-brainer for me.

If you love Tajin on your fruit, this jelly bean is for you!

It’s a dark orange color with tiny red specks as if the jelly bean itself has been sprinkled with chili-lime salt.

It’s a fruity, citrusy jelly bean with a kick. You’ll love how the spice level varies slightly from bean to bean, keeping you guessing with each bite.

Cinnamon Bark Illustration

10. Sizzling Cinnamon

Speaking of spice: this gold-flecked, bright red bean packs a punch!

Cinnamon-flavored candy is kind of like Marmite – you either love it or you hate it.

It’s a robust flavor that’s nothing like the cinnamon spice you’ll find in your PSL.

Instead, the spicy flavor of these cinnamon beans comes from cinnamon oil or “cinnamaldehyde.” That makes it much more potent!

Just be careful you don’t pop a few of these in your mouth thinking they’re cherry.

Toasted Marshmallow Drawing

11. Toasted Marshmallow

All of the best campfire flavors without the fire hazard, here’s one for the kids at heart.

This cream-colored bean is speckled with brown spots – just like a fire-toasted marshmallow.

It’s a sweet and creamy jelly bean that’s undoubtedly unique. 

Mixed Berry Smoothie Graphics

12. Mixed Berry Smoothie

The mixed berry smoothie Jelly Belly is a chewy fruity bean that you could technically eat for breakfast, right? 

This one is lavender and dark purple with a vaguely creamy and perfectly fruity taste.

As always, Jelly Belly uses real juice in their beans, so the fruit flavor is just right.

Bright Yellow Lemon  Illustration

13. Lemon Drop

Shockingly yellow and freckled with white, this Jelly Belly flavor is fantastic! 

It’s very similar to the original hard candy lemon drop, so expect lots of tart, zesty flavor.

The white spots on this bean represent the sugar coating on old-fashioned lemon drops. But inside is all yellow.

Strawberry Jam Drawing

14. Strawberry Jam

These beans are very accurately named.

They have a wonderfully sweet strawberry flavor. And when you add French vanilla beans, it tastes just like a strawberry shortcake

The strawberry jam bean is also vital to the banana split jelly bean combo. 

It’s a dark red color with burgundy spots and is jammy and sweet without the mess. 

Root Beer In A Glass Creative Drawing

15. A&W Root Beer

These are unmistakenly root beer flavored.

In fact, Jelly Belly uses the same syrup that A&W uses to make these tiny candies. 

The bean is the same color as the anise-flavored soda and is very aromatic. There’s no confusing this one. 

Mix two root beer jelly beans with one cream soda, and you have a root beer float!

Sliced and Whole Peaches Drawing

16. Peach

Juicy peaches are delectable, and this jelly bean is exactly that.

Bright orange with red spots, peach jelly beans tastes delicious with a cream soda bean. It’s like peaches and cream!

Also, these babies are made with real peach puree, so you get perfect peach flavor every time. 

Margarita in a Cocktail Glass Graphic

17. Margarita

As a massive margarita lover, this is probably my all-time fave. It’s sweet, zippy, and super fun.

This bean is lime green with dark green speckles and has a lemon-lime flavor that stands out from typical lime candies.

This bean is unmatched and ideal with one of those chili mango beans!

Wild Blackberry Graphics

18. Wild Blackberry

While they’re often overlooked in favor of blueberries and raspberries, I adore blackberries.

The flavor is so deep and intense and shines in this Jelly Belly bean.

The gorgeous, deep, dark purple color is just as fun as the flavor, which is terrific thanks to the blackberry puree used to make them. 

It’s wildly delicious. 

Sliced Lemon Lime Image

19. Lemon Lime

This neon green bean has a yellow interior and is full of citrusy flavor.

Real lemon and lime juices play a big part in the fresh flavor of this jelly bean. So expect something fresh and fruity.

If you’re a dessert fan, try a lemon-lime bean with a toasted marshmallow bean to create key lime pie!

Sour Cherry Graphics

20. Sour Cherry

If you thought the classic “very cherry” couldn’t get any better, try this.

Sour candy is superior when it comes without the messy sugar crystals. Plus, while it’s tart, it’s not overwhelming like some candies can be.

This is delightfully sour and has a major cherry flavor.

In terms of looks, it’s almost identical to its cherry-flavored sibling – so be on the lookout.

Orange Tangerine Illustration

21. Sunkist® Tangerine

I never thought I’d write about candy with any nutritional value, but here I am.

And believe it or not, one serving of this jelly bean flavor will get you 25% of your daily value of vitamin C. 

Real tangerine juice is used for these bright orange candies. As a result, they taste just like Sunkist® soda, and they’re fun to eat!

Banana Images

22. Top Banana

I know that some banana candies taste synthetic. But these sweet banana flavors are distinctively delicious.

This bean looks just like a ripe banana with a yellow shell spotted with brown.

It’s an immediately recognizable flavor that’s easy to love. 

Try a top banana bean with one cream soda bean and one coconut bean. It will taste like a heavenly banana cream pie

Stop monkeying around and go try this yummy Jelly Belly flavor. 

Raspberries Drawing

23. Raspberry

Dark red jelly beans with the juicy flavors of real raspberry? I’ll take a bagful, please!

These are sweet with a super subtle tang you’ll love.

Try mixing a raspberry bean with one lemon-lime and one orange sherbet for a rainbow sherbet delight. 

Unfortunately, this jelly bean is pretty easy to confuse with other red beans. So if you want raspberry, you might have to go through a few other red flavors first.

Luckily, most of the red ones are sweet and fruity, so it’s usually (I’m looking at you, cinnamon bean) a pleasant surprise.

Sliced Pomegranate Illustration

24. Pomegranate

Speaking of red, fruity jelly beans, these pomegranate jelly beans have a deeply delicious flavor.

They also have 100% of your daily value of vitamin C!! Mind = blown. 

Those healthy benefits are all thanks to the real juice that Jelly Belly uses. And I’ll take any excuse to eat candy.

Sodas in a Bottle Drawing

25. A&W Cream Soda 

Fun fact: cream soda was one of the eight original Jelly Belly flavors. Made to taste like your favorite soda float, it’s been a fan fave for years.

They use real A&W syrup to flavor these beans and have a nice creamy color with a hint of beige. It’s almost a champagne color.

If you like cream soda, you’ll love this candy bean. 

Variety of Birthday Cakes Image Drawing

26. Birthday Cake Remix

Birthday cake is one of the greatest things in life (as far as food goes). The problem? It’s not always accessible. 

Luckily, Jelly Belly found the solution and created a birthday cake jelly bean.

It has a creamy white shell that’s sprinkled with colorful confetti. And it looks just like cake too!

This is from the Cold Stone® Ice Cream Parlor mix and tastes like Cake Batter™ ice cream, sprinkles, and fudge brownies.

Say less; I’m there!

Plums Illustration

27. Plum

This purple marbled bean tastes just like it was picked right from a tree. It has a juicy, lush flavor that plum lovers adore. 

It may not be your go-to flavor to grab, but when you taste one, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Combine two plum beans with a rare French vanilla bean for a plum pudding-flavored treat!

Coconut Graphic

28. Coconut 

Ready to head to a tropical hideaway?

These coconut beans are made using real coconut flakes, so you know it tastes like the real thing. 

These are way easier to eat than trying to whack a coconut shell open. And they’re sweeter too.

These beans are solid white and have a sweet, creamy, and prominent coconut flavor. 

Pair them with anything tropical, and you’re in for a treat.

Red Soda Can Graphics

29. Dr. Pepper 

Twenty-three flavors all in one soda-pop-inspired jelly bean, this dark brown/purple bean tastes just like Dr. Pepper. 

Dr. Pepper is known to include flavors like root beer, cherries, licorice, prunes, and allspice. It’s sweet, spicy, fruity, and everything in between. 

Eating these beans is like sipping on the real thing!

Try adding two very cherry beans to make a cherry cola! 

Cantaloupe Illustration

30. Cantaloupe

Cantaloupe is a super sweet fruit when it’s ripe. And this orange-colored bean is full of sweet and juicy cantaloupe flavor.  

One of the only things I don’t like about cantaloupe is that it’s time-consuming to cut up.

So, if you’re like me and don’t like doing manual labor, just eat the jelly beans instead!
