Welcome to Chloe Harris' Blog

"Chloe Harris" really is the pseudonym for two writers, Noelle and Barbra, who've joined forces to write intriguing and sexy stories. A quintessential eccentric southerner, Noelle seems to find a story in almost everything. Ever ambitious to change her stars, she has a degree in Communications. Barbra lives together with her cat ('Princess Mimi'), who isn't very happy that she is spending so much time on writing. But this folly of the living can opener with opposable thumbs is mostly tolerated.

Which one is your favorite?

by Barbra

It so happened as I was watching X-Men: First Class at the cinema last night that I bought Popcorn and ... well, I couldn’t buy the usual (which is yellow M&M’s), because I’m on a strict “NO chocolate!” diet. Bummer. So I had to settle for something else. What should I take? What? What? Oh! Here they are. Jelly Beans. Haven’t had one in, oh years, I guess, so why not try it again?

It occurred to me only later that when it’s dark I can’t really pick out the ones I don’t like. So every bite is a surprise. And right after that I thought that must be how J.K. Rowling invented Harry Potter’s wizardry sort of jelly beans - forgot what she called them, the ones that make you do all kinds of funny noises. Know which ones I mean?

So, in the pack were the following flavors:
blueberry, bubble gum°, buttered popcorn*, candy floss, chocolate pudding***, coconut, green apple°, island punch, lemon lime, lemon, liquorice**, orange sherbet, peach°, pina colada, strawberry daiquiri, tangerine*, toasted marshmallow°, tutti-frutti, very cherry, watermelon°.

° Top 5 in my opinion
* yuck!!!!!
** very YUCK!!!
*** you know, that really tastes like E.B. just ... you know what.

It really seemed that the pack was full of the yuck - and especially the very yuck - flavors and none of the good ones, so I had to put it aside. Every time I bit into a very yuck one, disgust made my face pucker and I closed my eyes involuntarily - and so missed another millisecond of drooling over Mr. Fassbender (ohhh ... now that I think of it: Can I have your baby, Mr. Fassbender? Why don’t you send it in the mail. An ice chest should do the trick). I brought it home with me (the Jelly Beans, not the ice chest!) so that I could write this thought-provoking post.

I was wondering: Do you like Jelly Beans? If so, what’s your favorite flavor? And your least favorite? Or your Top 5 favorite/least favorite?

I like the recipes. You know like 2 green apple and 1 cinnamon makes a candy apple.
