For those that don't know Belly Flops are just oddly shaped or they don't have the jelly belly logo on them. Doesn't affect the taste. This is a great deal. You'll pay 20 bucks for 1 or 2 of these bags in the store (not Belly Flop version).

This is very tempting, but what am I gonna need 8 pounds of jelly beans for?

Also if anyone's interested I found another similar deal on Amazon. It's only 4 pounds and it's sold as Kirkland Signature (the Costco store brand), but they're still regular Jelly Bellies. The price is about the same as this deal counting shipping since the Amazon one has free shipping while the Belly Flops cost $9 or more to ship.

EDIT: Forgot the price, its $28.26 for the 4 pound Kirkland pack

@reelgenius: So... all in all you'd be buying half the amount for roughly the same price? Sounds tempting...

I bought these for my boyfriend and they are a lot of fun - you get some that are "normal-ish" and then a lot of siamese twins. The biggest one in our bag was a 6-jelly bean monstrosity. No clue what all the flavors are but you can usually look them up. There were maybe 12-15 flavors in our 1 pound bag. I will probably buy more of these for Christmas - totally a fun gift.

In for 8 lbs for a total, with S&H, of $25.82, which comes out to just over $0.20/ounce (about the lowest price you'll ever see for a JB product)- Huzzah! I can feel the stomach ache coming on already... but it's a goooood pain...

@gchinkin: It's not a better deal, just an alternate in case anyone doesn't want the rejects. Although I don't know why it would matter, they all taste the same deformed or not.

@reelgenius: For some twisted reason, I enjoy the rejects even more... "Your punishment, rejects, is death by digestion, sitting in a stew of my digestive juices amongst the mangled remains of your fellow rejects!" Tee-hee!!

Free shipping doesn't kick in until the order totals $50. My 8 pounds came to $29.58 after the discount, with shipping. That's $3.75 a pound.

Some people who have gotten these in the past have gotten a preponderance of undesirable flavors, like black licorice. Some people seem satisfied, but some are not. See comments on JB site.

I would be interested in this.. except I live just a few miles away from the factory, and can get them for a fraction of the price, with no shipping costs beyond about a gallon of gas.

That being said, they're good beans, and a lot of fun. Previous Flop bags tend to about half where the logo doesn't print, then the rest are either 'twinned' or lumpy. Doesn't affect the flavor at all.

I get the Belly Flops at 99 cents store - I think the bags are 12 ozs. When you take into account no shipping charges it ends up being a similar deal

@jeffm22: doesn't that make it a considerably better deal? (at the 99 cent store)
