We went on a “first day of summer” outing the other day which usually includes a stop at Alaska Wild Berry where the boys each pick out a little something. One year it was a giant chocolate coin, last year it was Jelly Bellys and so on. They LOVE the 20 foot chocolate fall (who wouldn’t), it’s a pretty awesome sight. The kitchens have big windows into them so you can see what’s going on in there, this time we saw a massive caramel slab being cut down to 1/4 sheet cake size, yum. They also have an AMPLE sample platter where you can try a little piece of their hand made chocolates, or many little pieces, ahem.
This year the boys chose Jelly Belly Bean Boozled as their treat, a small box of jelly beans, 1-2 ounces, maybe. The idea behind them is that they make awful flavored beans that look exactly like delicious flavored beans so tutti fruitti looks JUST like stinky socks and chocolate pudding looks JUST like canned dog food.
Lawn Clippings or Lime?!?
OH!! LIME! Whew.
Baby Wipe or Coconut?? EWWWW Baby Wipe!
My kids spent the entire ride home giggling about the trying the beans, first one tasted was skunk spray NOT black licorice. Hilarious. They tried to pass them off to us, my mother and me, and we politely declined who wants to accidentally get rotten eggs instead of buttered popcorn? Not me. But the kids didn’t mind at all.
We bought a box for my husband, thinking he’d LOVE it but alas he tried a few from the boxes the boys had and he’d had enough. So we have this extra box. It’s never been opened and we didn’t know what to do with it. My husband suggested giving it away here and the boys heartily agreed. So here we are, the prize isn’t HUGE but do it for the kids! Winner must be a resident of the USA so we can mail it to you. Just leave a comment about WHO you’d try to fool or WHICH flavor you’d actually eat. And if you don’t mind we’d love a share too, but it’s NOT necessary to win.
Here’s the back of the box so you can see all the choices.
Good luck! Giveaway ends on Memorial Day and we’ll mail out as soon we hear from the winner.
