Belly Flops!

You guys, look what I found at the 99 Cent store yesterday? 
My friend Susan turned me onto these so I had to take a special trip and load up.

Belly Flops! 

We all do em' and here we have the 99 Cent store teaming up with Jelly Bellys to teach us all a very important life lesson. 


Here's what Belly Flops have taught me: 

1. Yes, you can make money from your mistakes. 

2. We are all worthy of love.  We're all irregular and that makes us exciting and unpredictable. Belly Flops deserve the love and I'm glad that the Jelly Belly company didn't see them as worthless and toss them aside.  I, for one, am very happy to eat these little Floppers. 

3. Living outside the realm of social norms is interesting and should be celebrated.  You know what?  I think these are better than Jelly Bellys!  They're a little larger and some of them are connected.  Double explosion of tastiness.  

4. Never judge a book or person by their cover. Yesterday I ate a lime one that tasted like coconut!  I took a little risk on a flavor I normally hate... turned out the little Belly Flopper had a special surprise in store for me.  It was like he knew and respected my taking a risk on his outer shell color and he rewarded me with my favorite flavor.  

5. Moderation is one key to a happy and balanced life. Just be careful with these little guys.  They're like those cupcakes from Crumbs.  I think I'll only have a bite and then the entire package is gone by the end of the day.  Enjoy and purchase in moderation.
