National Jelly Bean Day Taste Test Contest

April is the month that begins with tomfoolery, but that doesn’t mean the tricks have to be limited to April 1st! April 22nd is National Jelly Bean Day, and what better way to celebrate than to share some delicious Jelly Beans with your tenants and give them a chance to win fun prizes by correctly guessing the wide range of fruity to bizarre flavors? Turn this National Jelly Bean Day into a side-splitting celebration your tenants are sure to never forget with these simple steps!

First of all, you can’t have a National Jelly Bean Day celebration without Jelly Beans! For this party, however, not any old Jelly Beans will do. BeanBoozled Jelly Beans from Jelly Belly are what will make this party memorable. BeanBoozled Jelly Beans come in 10 different colors, BUT each color has TWO different flavors, a yummy flavor and a really gross, weird one, and you can't tell the flavors apart until you take a bite! Watch these hilarious reactions as two people experience the shockingly grody Jelly Belly  flavors such as Booger, Barf, Baby Wipes, Stinky Socks, Rotten Eggs, Lawn Clippings, Toothpaste, Moldy Cheese, Skunk Spray, and Canned Dog Food!

Since there are 10 different colors, you will need 10 candy jars (one for each color).   Party City has inexpensive and reusable clear, plastic candy jars for only $6.99 each.  As for the Jelly Beans themselves, you can find 10 lb. cases of BeanBoozled Jelly Beans for $159.

Once you have all of your jars filled with the sorted Jelly Beans, number the jars 1-10 and place them on a table covered with a brightly colored table cloth. You can get as creative as you’d like with your Jelly Bean jar display by adding different colored balloons with ‘Jelly Belly’ written on them in white paint marker, and other fun, colorful decorations and treats. Whatever you do, though, make sure that napkins, a pitcher of water, cups and a garbage can are easily accessible for those unlucky tenants who chomp into the not so pleasant flavors! Last, but not least, have a stack of cards on the table for tenants to fill out with their  flavor guesses for each color of Jelly Beans. You can have fun gift cards or gift baskets ready to give out to the first 5 people who correctly guess all of the flavors! 

Be sure to advertise your National Jelly Bean Day wing-ding with flyers describing the location on the grounds and times the booth will be operating. The great thing about a candy jar booth is that it can literally be set up anywhere and can quickly be moved indoors in the event of bad weather. According to the Jelly Belly website, Jelly Belly Jelly Beans are OU Kosher, gluten free, peanut free, dairy free, fat free and vegetarian friendly so even tenants who have dietary restrictions should be able to participate without any worries. Get creative and enjoy a gut-busting good time watching the reactions of unsuspecting tenants as their tastebuds experience crazy flavor explosions.
