Fun Recipes for Jelly Belly – Customize The Flavor Of Your Favor

I recently had some banana split flavored mini melt ice-cream where they basically mix and match a number of flavors to simulate the taste of a banana split. A similar thing can be done with Jelly Belly, an idea for another fun and edible wedding favor. Jelly Bellies are one of my favorite candies for wedding favors. They come in different flavors and colors it’s so versatile. So why not take things one stamp further, and mix up the flavors for a yummy treat for your guests?

Jelly Belly ~ Edible, Cheap Wedding Favor That Breaks The Ice And Not The Bank At Reception

Ever been assigned to a table full of strangers at a reception and ended up spending all your energy trying to entertaining each other?

I was recently asked to come up with a cheap, edible, and creative wedding favor that would keep the guests entertained without breaking the budget. I presented several options, and the clear winner was – JELLY BEANS.

Jelly beans come in so many colors and flavors, you will have no problem finding one that is right for your reception. But my suggestion went beyond the color and the taste ~ we’ve made it a game at the reception, and we named it “Guest What (Flavor, that is)”.

You Will Need:

Jelly belly in a number of different flavors. If the tables at your reception sits 8 people, have 8 different flavors. To make the game more difficult, use jelly belly in similar colors.

ORANGE SHERBET RASPBERRY LICORICE COCONUT FRENCH VANILLA CHOCOLATE PUDDING
CAPPUCCINO ROOT BEER BERRY BLUE GREEN APPLE PEANUT BUTTER STRAWBERRY CHESSECAKE
KIWI BUTTERED POPCORN CHERRY COLA BUBBLE GUM CARAMEL APPLE JUICY PEAR
MARGARITA STRAWBERRY DAIQUIRI BLUEBERRY PINA COLADA ISLAND PUNCH

Cello bags or clear favor boxes


Explain the Game to Your Guests – you could have your MC or DJ do this. Alternatively, have an instruction sheet for each table that ask the guests to guess the number of different flavors on their table, and name as many of these flavors as possible. The table that got the most flavors correct wins.

Edible, affordable, functional, fun. Who knew those little jelly beans could take on so much.
