What feels like many, many years ago, I stepped out with my mother on a rare window shopping trip meant purely for entertainment. We wandered the nearby factory outlets and eventually found ourselves in a Jelly Belly shop. On this particular shopping trip, I squealed in delight as I discovered for the first time Harry Potter‘s Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans.
Experiencing Harry Potter‘s Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans
This discovery occurred early on when the Jelly Belly Factory had only created Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans in their Harry Potter product line. Needless to say, my excitement softened my mother’s heart, so she bought me one small package of the beans.
Tasting the beans for the first time, I slowly consumed the beans while reading the latest Harry Potter book. The flavors ranged widely. Some had a delightful, fruity flavor, much like a regular Jelly Belly bean. Others had come straight from the Wizarding World, such booger, bacon, and vomit.
Every bean brought me straight to the Wizarding World’s heart, straight to my love for the series as a tween and on. The Harry Potter product line gave me a reason to frequent Jelly Belly, whereas no reason had existed before.
Why Parents Should Buy Harry Potter’s Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans for Their Children
Harry Potter came to America during my elementary school years. My sixth grade teacher, an amazing 26-years-old, single, and feisty woman, read The Sorcerer’s Stone to us, her students. She pre-ordered The Chamber of Secrets so she could read it to us before anyone else as well.
This teacher inspired imagination, encouraged love for the weird and extraordinary in the first millennials. And considering how well University Studio’s Wizarding World is doing, these same millennials are also likely teaching their own children to love Harry Potter.
Consequently, to delight and encourage imagination in their children, parents should buy them Harry Potter‘s Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans. The flavors quell harsh reality, surpass mere fun, and enter into awe and wonder.
Concluding Remarks on Initial Product in Jelly Belly’s Harry Potter Line
Why would a 30-year-old millennial talk about her enjoyment in Harry Potter – inspired products? Because they’re British!
Granted, the Jelly Belly Factory is located in Fairfield, California, but the beloved series originated from a British author, J.K. Rowling. Therefore, these delightful beans qualify in this poor American’s mind as a delectable treat from the United Kingdom. And she encourages every other Harry Potter fan to try them as well.
