Using ebay for evil

| | Comments (3)

Aside from the fact that ebay is evil and run by and supporting of criminals, but I won't go there, it's also useful in obtaining crap that would otherwise be impossible to get.

To wit, Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, as mentioned by JC that they existed.

Today eight packs arrived (it was a bulk lot, I figured I could sell the rest).

The flavours included are:
banana, black pepper, blueberry, booger, bubble gum, cherry, cinnamon, dirt, ear wax, grape jelly, grass, green apple, lemon drop, toasted marshmallow, buttered popcorn, sardine, spinach, tutti-frutti, vomit, watermelon

I haven't actually tried all of them, because some of them only had one, and I'll save them all up and eat all the singles last. But the ones I did try were fairly realistic. The sardine one was very fishy. And the grass one left my mouth tasting vaguely of grass ages afterward, even after eating "normal" ones.

I wasn't sure on the categorisation of them, thinking an apple one I ate was going to be spinach, but I think I have them all sorted now.

Amazing, isn't it, how they made a jelly bean with such flavors as spaghetti? I saw more Bertie Bott's Candy at a Borders book store a few months back, round the same time I saw the beans, they had ice mice, chocolate frogs,... and other stuff. Glad you liked them, be careful of the ear wax!

This box didn't have spaghetti unfortunately (or earthworm or soap). The ear wax was a single so haven't tried that one yet :)
