There’s a brand new game/challenge available from JellyBelly, the makers of many awesome jelly bean flavors. The BeanBoozled challenge puts a fresh, new spin on eating jelly beans.

In a box of BeanBoozled jelly beans, you receive an assortment of flavors– half are great-tasting, half are disgusting. Here are a few of the bad flavors included: Lawn Clippings, Barf, Canned Dog Food, Booger, Rotten Egg, and so on. And yes, they actually do taste like their flavor names. Here’s the catch, each of the bad ones each have the same color as one of the good flavors, so you won’t know if you are going to taste a good one or bad one.


Can I just say, before I go any further, that the fact that the Skunk Spray, Barf, or any of these flavors could be “naturally flavored” seems to make the game even more interesting…and I digress.

This game/challenge provides great fun and enjoyment for kids, students, and adults. It can also be used as a team building activity. Here’s a video from one of our children’s ministry staff meetings in which we started off the meeting with the challenge. You can clearly see how much fun we had.
