Best Jelly Beans?

Just picked up 3 bags of my personal favorite - the ones by made Lifesavers, of all manufacturers. I'm not a big candy person except for Easter, and these just seem to taste so much better to me.

Do you guys have a favorite brand?

The only jelly beans I like are the Jelly Belly brand ones. I like that they are smaller and you can get many interesting flavours. Butter popcorn, root beer and strawberry sundae are my favourites.

I really like the Lifesaver brand. They have the traditional flavors I like the best. I recently received a sampler box of Jelly Bellys as a thank you gift. It had 20 different flavors and many were not really that good. Just my opinion...

jelly bellies completely groos me out. some of those flavors are just practical jokes, i'm sure. some guy in a lab coat and hair net decides to get even with the world while standing over the vat of cooking jelly, and 2 smelly sneakers later, they've come up with a new flavor (what! whaddidya think i was gonna say... )

there's a local little candy shop that makes their own jelly beans that are very good. they taste a lot like "mike and ike's", but fresh and without all of the preservatives.
