So… I’m going to get a little personal here. I had the privilege of growing up with more grandparents than most of my friends. I had two sets of grandparents, and 2 sets of great grandparents. Because we had more than just two, we called all of our great grandparents by their first names. They were known as “Grandpa Ed & Grandma Lou”, and “Grandma Marge AND… Jelly Bean Grandpa”. Yes, for 13 years of my life, we called him Jelly Bean Grandpa – and it all started with us grandkids, and I was the oldest of all. Why did we call him Jelly Bean Grandpa, you ask? I would like to say with confidence it was because he always had Jelly Beans, but that’s not the case. I honestly have no idea why we called him that… maybe he’d have Jelly Beans once in a while, but not ALL the time – but he definitely always had some kind of candy. Who couldn’t resist and love a Grandfather who goes by Jelly Bean Grandpa?!? Which brings me to the next question… why can’t I resist and have a deep love for Jelly Beans in general?!
I had the honor of being able to taste and enjoy Gimbal’s Gourmet Holiday Mix Jelly Beans. From flavors ranging from the irresistible St. Nick’s Cinnamon Spice, to Rudolph’s Rockin’ Raspberry, to Awesome Apple Crisp, and Mrs. Claus’s Cool Coconut – this holiday mix is just the PERFECT touch to a holiday party, a movie night in, something to have set out for guests to enjoy throughout the holidays, or.. in my case, the perfect touch to remind us of loved ones who have left us and the amazing memories they left behind.
Gimbal’s also provides a 41-flavor mix of jelly beans, sour gourmet jelly beans, Cinnamon Lovers, Cherry Lovers, Sour Loves, Licorice Scotties and much more! These are going to be perfect for Valentine’s Day and Easter! And on top of the variety of gourmet candies – all of their candies are peanut-free, tree nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and egg-free. These ingredients are responsible for countless allergic reactions across the nation – so Gimbal’s had made it their priority to provide candies that can be enjoyed by so many people, including those with food allergies! Gimbal’s also supports our troops, supports organization promoting Allergen Awareness, & they support and donate to causes around the world.
I love it when I find a product that I like, and find out what they do for our community – it makes me like them THAT much more.
