If you’ve been reading Raspberrykiss for a while now you’ll know that I used to enter online competitions quite frequently. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve never been a “comper” who enters every single giveaway or competition going, I’ve only ever entered competitions I’ve genuinely wanted to win, for prizes that I’ve wanted to try or use. Anyone who enters competitions knows that it is a really time-consuming hobby and it is because of that reason why I suddenly stopped a year or so again as I just simply did not have the time. Anyway, over the past month or so I’ve really been wanting to get back into the hobby as I love trying things out so I’ve been entering giveaways here and there. One giveaway I entered was over on whatsyourfavouriteflavour.co.uk and it was to win a huge Jelly Belly Jelly Bean Hamper. I love Jelly Beans as a little treat every now and again as I’m not a huge chocolate eater and these are a good alternative, although they are really sugary and not so good for you however, in moderation I think it is fine to have a couple here and a couple there.
So to cut a long story short I was lucky to win the hamper. I was literally over the moon (and I still am!) when I received an email from the lovely Annie and before I knew it the hamper had arrived on my doorstep. Was it what I was expecting? Not at all. I literally could not believe how many different packets and boxes of Jelly Belly Beans were in the hamper. This is by far one of the most generous and best prizes I’ve ever had the joy of winning. If you’d like to get your hands on your own hamper, you can actually purchase one from the Jelly Belly website (link) the hamper does retail at £100 which is quite expensive but I think this would make a great luxury gift for any Jelly Bean fanatic. Alternatively, you can enter to win you own hamper just like I did. A winner is drawn every month so be sure to enter as you’ve got to be in it to win it.
So what exactly did I receive in my hamper? Well inside I found a 350g 40 Assorted can, 4x250g Gift bags (Assorted, Fruit Bowl, Tropical & Sours), 4x150g Window boxes (Assorted, Fruit Bowl, Tropical & Sours), Dips (117g), Fab 5 & Cocktail Classics 125g Gift boxes, 200g Red Signature tin, 140g Pouch Bags (Cocktail Mix & 20 Assorted), 3x50g Pocket boxes and finally a 40g Big Bean Assorted and 40g Lay Flat Bag oh and some Mini taster packets. As you can imagine I’ve got enough beans to last me a long, long time although I haven’t been a total Scrooge as I’ve shared them out with friends, family and my work colleagues, although I do still have LOADS left.
What I love about the hamper is that I’ve been able to try out so many flavours that I have never tasted before. Some of my new favourite discoveries include Coconut, Tutti Frutti, Toasted Marshmallow, Top Banana and Red Apple. My least favourite flavours? Would definitely have to be the Bean Boozled flavours, but that is a topic for a whole other post. Overall I’m over the moon with my prize and I’d like to say a huge thank you to Jelly Belly.
Are you a Jelly Belly Bean fan?
