Jelly Belly Candy Company has collaborated with Universal Pictures to introduce a line of BeanBoozled Minions beans, featuring several flavor pairs.

The company encourages consumers to take the BeanBoozled challenge because these pairs of identical looking jelly beans could either be “delicious”​ or “frightening.”

The limited edition flavor pairs include Minion fart or green apple, pencil shavings or Ba-na-na, barf or peach, booger or juicy pear, canned dog food or chocolate pudding, moldy Cheese or caramel corn, dead fish or strawberry banana smoothie, rotten egg or buttered popcorn, spoiled milk or coconut, and stinky socks or Tutti-Frutti.

The product range is now available in several package forms, including a 45g flip top box, 54g bag and the 95g spinner tin with a spin wheel on the top, according to Jelly Belly.

The California-headquartered company said this is its first licensed partnership for the BeanBoozled brand.
