Jelly Belly Sparkling Water Coming To Illinois Grocery Stores
The already crowded seltzer/sparkling water market is getting a little more jammed up.
In this case, it's more appropriate to say "jelly'd up" when referring to Jelly Belly attempting to make a splash in the flavored water market.
Featuring only two ingredients, carbonated water, and natural flavors, Jelly Belly sparkling water apparently will have all the taste of the iconic jelly beans and none of the calories.
When the sparkling water finally arrives in stores you'll be able to pick from eight different flavors, French Vanilla, lemon-lime, orange sherbet, pina colada, pink grapefruit, tangerine, very cherry, or watermelon according to Delish.
The press release states the Jelly Belly drink will be available at Hy-Vee grocery stores in the midwest. That's great, except there isn't one nearby. The closest Hy-Vee is in Bloomington, roughly two hours from Rockford.
If you can't make it to Bloomington to pick up some of your own, never fear, you can order it online at jellybelly.com when the drink officially comes out.
