Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:yummy-tasting Sugar-Free candies!
Cons:too much maltitol can give you .....trouble.
The Bottom Line: I do enjoy indulging in Sugar-Free Jelly Belly's with zero guilt.
I first bought a bag of these Jelly Belly Sugar Free Jelly Beans for my sister, who is a diabetic. She told me they were so good and you couldn't tell the difference between the 'sugar-free' and the 'sugar-full' jelly beans.
Recommend this product?
My sister really wanted to convince me how good they were, so she then bought me a large bag of Jelly Belly Sugar Free Jelly Beans a couple of years ago. I'd thoroughly enjoyed the bag she sent me and I honestly cannot tell the difference either. We also just came back from visiting the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield, California. We visited the factory some years ago, so it was nice to go back to see how the place is doing. Well the ol' Jelly Belly place was really jumping, with all kinds of children and tourists there to taste and see how Jelly Belly's are made.
While we were there, of course we had to visit the Jelly Belly Shop. I purchased a small bag of Sugar-Free Jelly Belly's for myself. The bag is small at just 3.1 ounces (87 g). There are several different types of Sugar-Free Jelly Belly flavors in this bag of assorted flavors though. I'm not a huge fan of the black licorice type of jelly beans, but they are included here. They also have a bag you can purchase which is just made up of Sugar-Free SOURS, tempting, but I did not get a bag of these this time around.
The flavors in this bag are as follows: Buttered Popcorn, Cherry, Green Apple, Juicy Pear, Lemon, Black Licorice, Pineapple, Sizzling Cinnamon, Strawberry, and Tangerine. I would say that the only difference I can taste is that the Sugar-Free Jelly Belly's are not quite as firm or dense as the sugar-full type. That's probably because sugar is the main ingredient in the sugary variety. I do love the Buttered Popcorn, the Cherry, Lemon and Tangerine....well, okay, I pretty much love them all except black licorice.
Naturally and artificially flavored.

There are 40 percent fewer calories (80 calories per serving) in the Sugar-Free Jelly Belly's than regular Jelly Bellys, which contain 140 calories per serving. One serving equals 35 jelly beans, which is a lot in my book.

(My older bag of Sugar-Free Jelly Belly's was sweetened with maltitol, but contained phenylalanine as well. The Jelly Belly people obviously changed their recipe lately.)
