We Try Stinkbug-Flavoured Jelly Bellys So You Don't Have To

Chew on this: There are two new flavours of Jelly Belly candies guaranteed to raise a stink.

Chew on this: There are two new flavours of Jelly Belly jelly beans guaranteed to raise a stink.

As part of its BeanBoozled game, which pairs delicious jelly beans with identical-looking but awful-tasting twins, the Jelly Belly company has come with two new designed-to-be-disgusting flavors: stinkbug and dirty dishwater.

The candies are paired with sweeter beans ― toasted marshmallow and birthday cake ― the idea being that people might get lucky and eat a flavour that isn't so gross.

Since consuming bad-tasting jelly beans is one of those ongoing problems facing humanity, HuffPost Weird News decided to put the foul-sounding beans to the test.

As you can see from these two videos, the stinkbug and dirty dishwater candies were hard to stomach.

The first video shows us sampling just the stinkbug flavour.

We try both flavours in this one.

Although neither flavour is great, we did end up brushing our teeth for about 25 minutes each to get the aftertaste out of our mouths ― so at least our dentist is happy.
