Jelly Bean Store at Skyline Rotorua

New Zealand’s first Jelly Bean Concept Store and Art Gallery opens at Skyline Rotorua.

Skyline Rotorua has teamed up with the world famous Jelly Belly gourmet jelly bean company to open a fantastic new store at the top of the Gondola, which will excite the sweet tooth in all of us.

The store sells around 100 different scrumptious flavours of jelly beans and has a massive variety of gift packs to choose from. With the Bean Boozled winning wheel and a jelly bean gallery featuring artworks made from thousands of jelly beans, this new store is sure to impress.

From the Leonardo da Vinci’s 'Mona Lisa' recreated using over 17,000 jelly beans to Van Gogh’s 'The Starry Night' boasting over 11,500 beans, the large scale artworks on show in the jelly bean art gallery wall are just incredible.

The taste buds are sure to be ignited by the sight of all those beans, so guests can take some away via the unique ‘PicknMix’ box or in gift boxes.

And then it is on to the game of chance called Bean Boozled. This involves spinning a large ‘winning’ wheel for a jelly bean taster, but there is a catch. Whatever coloured jelly bean the player lands on there are 2 different flavours to try – one good flavour and one bad flavour, but the player can’t tell which is good or bad!

The game consists of 8 good flavours to taste, like Chocolate Pudding and Peach, and 8 bad flavours from Dog Food through to Rotten Egg flavoured jelly beans. That’s right – take your chances if you dare!

Then once you done with all the Jelly Bean fun, enjoy a Luge ride or two and take in the stunning views overlooking Lake Rotorua.
