The story behind the infamous beans goes as follows:
Ryan and I had just enjoyed an awesome meal at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, at Universal Studios, City Walk. In the midst of our adult out night, I had a mommy moment; Let's get the kids something from Universal!
As minds are often diluted after a margarita, I didn't realize when buying the (ahem) 11.00 bag of jelly beans that they were not your normal beans.
It wasn't until the morning after, upon further inspection that I discovered the flavors weren't cherry or bubblegum, but instead vomit, dirt, soap, earthworm, boogers, rotten eggs, etc.
Ryan and I tried a few, gagged, spit them out, acted like complete babies (dude- these things are NASTY).
When we got home I put them on the counter, not even announcing their presence to the kids.
And then the kids spotted them.
And then began the begging. And whining.
So, I fed them the beans... (while videotaping of course).
