 Hi!  It’s Friday, April 22, 2011 and time for a Virtual Field Trip at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
Jelly Belly Factory

Age Range: All (Non-readers will need assistance.)

At the Jelly Belly website, you can take a free video virtual tour to see how the flavorful jelly beans are made. Watch a series of 9 video clips and read the accompanying text that details:

  • How the mix for the gooey centers are made
  • How the mix is shaped
  • How the soft centers are cooled and hardened
  • How the centers are showered in sugar
  • How the outer shells are built around the soft centers
  • How the beans are polished to a high gloss
  • How the Jelly Belly name is printed on each bean
  • How the beans are packaged
  • How the beans are distributed to stores

Each video takes a few seconds to download. Your patience will be rewarded with a sneak peek at how the delectable confections are manufactured.

When you’re through with the tour, use the menu to explore other areas of the site including “Fun Stuff” with information on taking real-time Jelly Belly factory tours, Jelly Belly Bean Recipes, and Jelly Belly Flavor Guides — there are 50 official flavors from Bubble Gum to Watermelon!

WARNING: This virtual tour may result in cravings for Jelly Belly Beans — better have some on hand before you take the tour! :)
