My friend Sue and I are highly entertained by Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, the Harry Potter-tie-in Jelly Belly jelly beans that offer such horrific flavors as vomit, earwax, sardine and booger.

Their saving grace has always been that if you look carefully, you can pick the gross ones out from the normal flavors, so you don't find yourself popping a dirt-flavored bean unless you want to (except for that one time I tried eating them in the dark of a movie...bad idea).

But now Jelly Belly is introducing BeanBoozled, where both good and bad beans look the same. So a yellow bean might be banana, or it might be pencil shavings. (!) Coconut, or baby wipes. Caramel corn, or moldy cheese. Skunk, or licorice. Yikes!
