Thursday Thirteen - Vacation Requirements

My partner and I cannot decide upon a vacation destination. So, the idea arose to create a list of trip preferences. Here goes:

1. A need of my never used passport

2. Wildlife viewing, perhaps interaction

3. A health club

4. Gambling, preferably a craps table for my partner

5. Boating

6. Ooh, and fishing

7. A private beach, perhaps

8. Isolation from street crime

9. Fine dining

10. An all-inclusive resort is starting to sound good

11. Adult beverages included

12. Plenty of quiet and relaxation

13. Adults only

I think a tropical resort might just be the way to go. What's your ideal vacation?

Thursday Thirteen - Jelly Belly Flavors

Out of all the flavors available in these incredible beans, I'm going to list thirteen favorites.

Orange Sherbet





Strawberry Jam


Caramel Corn


Toasted Marshmallow

Strawberry Cheesecake


Buttered Popcorn

The final is my favorite. What might yours be? And can somebody tell me how they isolate these realistic flavors? I have a forty-nine flavor variety package at home and none of the tastes contaminate the others. That's almost as amazing as the realism!

How do they keep the flavors from mingling in the bag?
