If you are a lover of jelly beans - like I think most men are, you've also probably tried to bring them along on a road trip at some point. Sadly these tasty sugary nuggets of flavor are among the worst options when it comes to snacking in the car since they tend to get sticky and lost in crevasses.
Jelly Belly has a solution though - they have four flavors of sugar free gum based on classic Jelly Belly flavors: Island Punch, Watermelon, Very Cherry, and Berry Blue. These taste similar to the classic jelly beans but are maybe a bit less sweet but still spot-on to exactly what you are expecting when you put one on your tongue.
With that being said, these are still sugar free and so anyone looking for a sugary blast of carb power may be disappointed. However, for those who are looking to monitor their calories and especially for use with kids, these are a great option.
While we can't guarantee that your kids won't find "creative" places to hide their used gum, we think sugar free gum like this is a great option to keep those little mouths busy. Plus, even for the adults in the car, chewing on some gum is great stress relief and can help satisfy food cravings so you can avoid the temptation of stopping at your favorite burger joint.
