Equipped with nearly 150 years of candy-making experience, Jelly Belly shapes and sweetens soft bean-size candies in more than 50 original flavors. The Jelly Belly University tour escorts guests around the Jelly Belly Factory, instructing them in the nuts and bolts of building a gourmet jelly bean. Groups of six candy lovers don lab coats, gloves, and hairnets and scurry down factory lines during the 60- to 90-minute tour, observing as master confectioners cook sweets after harvesting them from a field of underground jelly trees. Unlike Jelly Belly's normal tour, the University tour takes place on the factory floor and allows guests to grab free samples straight from production lines while interacting with candy makers.

After tasting blueberry, chili-mango, or toasted-marshmallow jelly beans straight off the line, each tour-goer will receive a Degree of Beanology T-shirt, a $4 discount on a souvenir photo, and a discount card for the retail shop. New tours are added consistently six weeks in advance, and current tours run on weekdays every two hours from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Guests must be at least 6 years old, the age at which ears are able to block out the beans’ intoxicating siren call.
