Historic Adventures Explores the Flavors of Jelly Belly
Historic Adventures Explores the Flavors of Jelly Belly--A Sweet Day-Trip to the Jelly Bean Factory
Started in 1869 by Gustav and Albert Goelitz, the Jelly Belly company still has family members in the corporation and the making of jelly beans. The Jelly Belly Center displays examples of older outdated equipment and photographs showing the history of the company. On this Historic Adventure, adults and children will share a 35 minute “train-ride tour” through the warehouse. Everyone will have a chance to sample a variety of Jelly Belly Beans, too! After the tour, participants will visit the Kenosha area and have lunch “on their own” at a nearby restaurant.
