The jelly bean maker is coming out with Jelly Belly Sport Beans filled with electrolytes, but not everyone is swallowing the new idea.
In fact, the untasty treat has been given the dubious honor of making Epicurious.coms Worst of the Worst list.
Epicurious website editor Tanya Steel recently spent three days stuffing her face with new products at New Yorks annual Summer Fancy Food Show, and describes the taste of the sporty jelly beans as sugary with a Vitamin Water flavor. She insists, Lance Armstrong is not going to be eating these puppies.
Steel also cant stomach gag-inspiring goodies like PMS Chocolate Bars and Oral Fixation Mints, and finds a product called Cheesecake in a Jar mind-boggling because, she wonders, Do we really need a grab and go cheesecake?
Finally, Steel is staying away from fishy rope- like Salmon Teriyaki Stix, which she says is as close as shes gotten to eating cat food.
