Sweet Heat: Jelly Belly Announces TABASCO® Jelly Belly® jelly beans


FAIRFIELD, Calif., Oct. 11, 2012­­ /PRNewswire/ -- Jelly Belly Candy Company adds sweet heat to the menu with TABASCO® Jelly Belly jelly beans.


The candy makers set out to develop a flavor so authentic that they sourced genuine TABASCO brand seasoning from the 140-year-old recipe made by McIlhenny Company of Louisiana. The Jelly Belly beans will ignite the taste buds with a peppery punch that hot sauce fans crave.

TABASCO Jelly Belly jelly beans are just as fiery as the iconic sauce itself. Hot sauce enthusiasts will immediately recognize the pungent taste of red peppers, Avery Island salt and distilled vinegar, coupled with a subtle sweetness – but not too sweet – undertone from the jelly bean itself.

TABASCO Jelly Belly jelly beans can be ordered direct from now, and are coming soon to gourmet foods, candy stores, gift stores and major national retailers. 

Jelly Belly beans are fat free, peanut free, dairy free, vegetarian, gluten free and OU kosher certified. For more information about Jelly Belly jelly beans and Confections by Jelly Belly, visit or, or call 800-522-3267.

The TABASCO® marks, bottle and label designs are registered trademarks and servicemarks exclusively of and licensed by McIlhenny Company, Avery Island, Louisiana 70513.
