Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week. I feel warmer and more tropical already. That's a good thing, because my house is very cold right now.
Jelly Belly Candy Company, has come out with a new offering -- Chocolate Dips. These dark chocolate covered jelly beans arrived in an assortment box; there were five different flavors. I ate all the coconut ones in this sample box. Other flavors included orange, raspberry, strawberry and very cherry. Chocolate Dips are guaranteed to please those who like both jelly beans and chocolate. (I also liked that flavors and colors listed included natural sources, such as carrot.) Chocolate Dips are available this week (Dec. 6, '10) at www.JellyBelly.com/Shop.
