Today, we continued our trek north through California. We decided to take a slight detour to Fairfield to check out the Jelly Belly Factory. We went on a free tour they offer to see how jelly beans are made. We couldn't take pictures during the tour, though, because you could actually see the machines they use to make the jelly beans. However, we did get free samples during the tour. We got a sample of a normal jelly bean, the inside of a jelly bean (without the shell), and the jelly bean with the shell but before finishing. And, at the end of the tour, we each got a free bag of jelly beans! There was also a sample bar to try out any of the flavors, which, of course, enticed us to buy some jelly beans to take home.
We would like to travel as much as possible, but it generally comes down to us just taking one big trip a year. So far, we have been to the Bahamas, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Florida, San Diego, England, South Dakota, Germany, Switzerland, and Scotland. We are currently on our road trip to the American Southwest.
