A long time ago, I had Welch’s brand jelly beans. Like the same brand name as jelly. I remembered them being the most amazing jelly beans I had ever tasted.
And then I never saw them again. Every Easter I would look on the candy shelves. No Welch’s. Had I imagined it? Is there really no such thing as Welch’s jelly beans?
Then yesterday, I stopped at Walgreen’s for milk because I was too lazy to go to the grocery store, and what did I see?
Welch’s jelly beans! There was only one bag left, so I snapped it up.
They were good, but not as good as I remember. There is a saying that goes: “Never meet your heroes”. Does that apply to jelly beans?
