Taste test: These M&M-shaped candies had chocolate on the inside and shells made from various Jelly Belly flavors, sporting the same variety of colors as Jelly Belly jelly beans.
The back of the box had a key for decoding the colors to figure out which of 20 flavors each one was. The jelly bean flavors were quite bold, as in every case, the flavor of the shell overwhelmed the chocolate, though the chocolate added a nice dimension to it. Overall, I didn't really think they were great, as the combination of these flavors with chocolate didn't really work for me. Here's what I though of the individual flavors from this box: Cherry, bad. Grape, very grapey, like concord grape juice, good. Orange Juice, good and really tasted like OJ. Cappucino, pretty good (and I'm not even a coffee drinker). Coconut, first one didn't really taste like coconut, second one did. Ice Blue Mint, very minty, pretty good. Honey graham cracker, not that good. Juicy pear, really did taste like a pear, OK. Cotton Candy, eventually tasted like cotton candy, but not at first. Sizzling Cinnamon, good but not really sizzling, and it didn't look like the picture on the box. Green Apple, really tasted like an apple, OK. Licorice, pretty good. Missing from this box were Blueberry, Buttered Popcorn, Apricot, Strawberry Shortcake, Raspberry, Tutti-Frutti, Toasted Marshmallow and Top Banana.
Smell test: Kind of fruity. Slightly weird. Not chocolatey at all.
