Today we toured the Jelly Belly jelly bean factory. It was quite fun to see how jelly beans were made and how many days it required to make them. Most of the flavors were fantastic, but they certainly had some purposely bad ones too. Yuck! Blueberry, coconut, and pumkin, etc. were nice, but vomit and ear wax were no thank you.

Be careful to not get these flavors mixed up!

After touring the jelly bean factory we drove through Napa Valley and the Silverado Trail. It was fun driving around seeing the names of wineries we recognized. Grapes were growing everywhere and it was one winery after another along both sides of the roads. We stopped at Sequoia Grove Vineyards and tasted all kinds of white and red wines. We bought 3 different kinds of wine to save for Thanksgiving. Today was very tasty indeed.
