Jelly Belly - Ice Cream Parlour Jelly Beans (House of Fraser) [By @cinabar]

I do like jelly beans, I love the amazing variety of flavours and it always seems there is something new to try. This new bag is a selection called Ice Cream Parlour, five new varieties of which only three are ice cream flavours, the other two are desserts!
Chocolate Chunk - Brown - This one definitely has a chocolate taste, but it is super sweet too. Nice in that it is a sweet so you allow it a little artistic licence but not a high quality chocolate taste.
Chocolate Mint - Light Green - There was a hint of mint with this bean, but mostly it tasted cool like menthol. There was some chocolate mixed in, but it wasn't my favourite sweet.
Strawberry Sundae - Pink - The beans are certainly getting better, with a strong berry taste very much reminiscent of strawberry ice cream, yum!
Birthday Cake - Speckled White - Quite a pretty sweet this one with a mix of colours, and it is not disappointing in flavour either. It is filled with a wonderful vanilla/caramel taste and a fab baked after taste. Its just absolutely lovely and a really good bean.
Apple Pie - Beige - Although this sweet had a lot to live up to, it still managed to make me smile. It was full of sweet rich apple tones and a good dose of cinnamon too. I do love cinnamon, so it will be no surprise to hear this sweet went down rather well.
All in all I like this selection of beans, although the mint was the weakest, the apple pie and cake flavour are absolute diamonds!
