Jelly Bean Challenge is an online dare game in which the participant tries one or more jelly bean candies from Jelly Belly's novelty flavored products, namely "Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans" or "BeanBoozled," and shares the recorded footage of one's own reaction onto video-sharing websites like YouTube.


In 2005, American confectionery company Jelly Belly introduced a new line of jelly bean products branded Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans[1], named after a fictional jelly bean-like product that appears in the Harry Potter universe, as part of the promotional marketing campaign for the fourth installment in the franchise, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. In keeping with the canonical description, each packaged unit is comprised of a mixture of the original Jelly Belly flavors and some new and unpleasant flavors disguised in original flavor colors (shown below, left). In 2008, Jelly Belly released a similar line of products called BeanBoozled[2] with nearly a dozen of new, odd flavors (shown below, right)
