Beyond the Jelly Bean: Jelly Belly Expands Global Offerings with Line of Oversized Gummies in Fun Animal Shapes

Although it is known worldwide for its Jelly Belly® jelly beans, Jelly Belly Candy Company has a legacy of gourmet confections that goes beyond the jelly bean. For decades, the American company has offered U.S. fans a variety of sweets, some of which now make their debut to the rest of the world. The Jelly Belly Gummi Pet Line is a collection of large, novelty gummies in animal shapes. The company introduces the 49g Gummi Pet Dinosaur™, 85g Gummi Pet Rat™, 85g Gummi Pet Gator™ and 42g Gummi Pet Tarantula™ in a variety of delicious fruit flavours, available now. Made with kosher gelatine, the fruit-flavoured gummi sweet is a playful treat to share or give as a gift.

Gummi Pet Dinosaur and Gummi Pet Gator are both available in cherry/lime, lime/orange or blueberry/lime flavours. Gummi Pet Tarantula comes in cherry, cherry/lime or grape, and Gummi Pet Rat is available in cherry, grape or orange.

Each Gummi Pet in the collection comes with a card filled with facts about the animal behind its inspiration.

For example, the Americans, especially those in the south-eastern United States, are familiar with alligators, or “gators” for short. Sweets lovers will enjoy learning a little more about this large and dangerous animal while snacking on a gummi cast in its likeness. The Gummi Pet Line is shipping to retailers now.
