Taste test: This bag of jelly beans contained 16 different flavors in a variety of colors, all shaped like hearts and quite a bit bigger than your typical jelly beans.
All of the flavors included the word "Honey" in them — Peaches 'n Honey, Wild Blueberry Honey, Tangy Orange Honey, Honey Dipped Strawberry, Honey Raspberry, Meyer Lemon Honey, Buttered Honey Popcorn, Cinnamon Honey, Orchard Pear 'n Honey, Huckleberry Honey, Black Cherry Honey, Pomegranate Honey, Honey Coconut, Golden Honey, Honey Mocha Toffee and Honey Vanilla. A handy key on the back of the bag mapped all of the colors/patterns to flavors, and thankfully, there were no major ambiguities (though Black Cherry Honey and Honey Raspberry were a little close). Usually combinations like this end up with a few real stinkers among the variety, but didn't happen here, as all of the ones I tried matched their intended flavors and ranged from OK to great, though I didn't particularly taste the honey in most cases. Honey Dipped Strawberry was particularly good, as it tasted like a strawberry shortcake.

Smell test: The overall smell of the bag was kind of weird, borderline yuck.
