lemon lime (now we're getting close)
But the winner was that smarty pants Adrienne over at d.c diaries, who correctly identified the mystery bean as . . . 7UP. Gross!
It's part of Jelly Bellys' soda pop series.
I'm sort of naueseous just thinking about it. Truly, I chose this bean solely for its color. But since I am easily amused, I had a excellent time all evening trying to people to taste the bean and then guess. Lemon lime was as close as anyone got.
You'll notice that I've survived last night's festivities in sufficient shape to plop myself in front of my computer (still in my robe). It was a hit. We didn't burn down the school. No one went to the hospital, and only one child cried. A full report forthcoming when I locate the camera.
