According to the Beer Institute (and no, I'm not making that up; it's a real institute!), when it comes to beer consumption--according to 2012 statistics--Texas is #2 (behind California!) on the list of states with the most beer consumed per capita. I couldn't find a corresponding listing of where the Lone Star State stands in regard to candy consumption, but for this blog, it really doesn't matter. What matters is, we can now enjoy beer-flavored Jelly Belly® Jelly Beans! Homer Simpson, are you listening?
