Ever wonder what it would be like to lick your favourite Avenger? Us too.Through a very rigorous testing process, Ariel (Art + Lit editor) and Elissa (Entertainment editor) have come up with the (un)official Jelly Belly combos for each Marvel blockbusting superhero! Click through to see the themed recipes, complete with commentary and flavour review.
Ariel: Not bad. They go well together. It’s good.
Elissa: Yeah, it’s good. I guess that’s what it tastes like when you…
Ariel: Lick the Hulk? Not advisable.
Elissa: OK, let’s eat Hawk-
Ariel: (bursts out laughing)
Elissa: Well, that’s… um….
Elissa: It tastes like grape juice.
Ariel: It’s very… in-your-face.
Ariel: That’s really good!
Elissa: Cinnamon doesn’t hit you right away…
Ariel: Well, she’s a badass, but you can’t see that right away because she’s a spy.
Elissa: This still tells us nothing about Budapest.
Ariel: Maybe if you eat it with Hawkeye at the same time, you come to a glorious revelation.
Ariel: I think I ate cinnamon instead.
Elissa: So yours is a Black Widow/Thor ship.
Ariel: I’ve never considered that ship, but now it’s all over my mouth…
Elissa: It definitely tastes like someone who’d be tased by Kat Dennings.
(Ariel and Elissa both die of laughter upon consumption)
Elissa: I like that neither of us can think of anything to say…
Ariel: I’m trying to think of something that’s not an entendre, but it’s hard.
Ariel: I just feel like I took some random jellybeans and threw them in my mouth…not unlike sleeping with Tony Stark.
Elissa: You can really taste the coffee.
Elissa: Tastes like my father doesn’t love me.
Ariel: It’s sweet at first, but then turns dark -
Elissa: – It’s pretty good -
Ariel: – I’m not just saying that because I’m a licorice fan.
Elissa: The coconut got kind of overpowered.
Ariel: Really? You can taste it in mine…
Elissa: Son of Coul!
Ariel: It’s sweet, but no discernible flavour. Coulson’s not a flashy sort of person.
Elissa: But it’s good. If this flavour were to die, I’d be very sad.
