12946 Shitty beans
Was the idea of having horrible surprise flavour jelly beans a thing before the Harry Potter books or did Rowling come up with the idea?
I'm not really old enough to remember.

>"Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans" were inspired by the Harry Potter book series and featured intentionally gruesome flavors such as "Vomit", "Earwax", "Skunk Spray", and "Rotten Egg". A similar product dubbed "BeanBoozled" pairs lookalike "normal" flavors with weird flavors, such as "Peach" and "Barf".[26][27]

Apparently inspired by Harry Potter, today I learned, interesting. It's one of those sweets though where you feel generally grim after consumption of a whole pack because you can never have five.

There were always shit favoured jelly beans. The worst type of sweet, by far, was those red hot cinnamon ones. I've no idea why they were ever a thing.

It's probably because someone invented cinammon, then someone else lied to him for a laugh and pretend to like the taste, so of course he assumed a bean-based version of the same flavour would be welcomed.
