New from Jelly Belly this Halloween season are a striking quartet of jelly bean packages released under the branding of Vile Villains!
In recent years, Disney has capitalized on their rogues gallery of villains, realizing that they represent nearly as many licensing opportunities as their heroes and protagonists had in the past. I’ll leave it to a Disney historian to determine exactly why that is, but it certainly makes for some groovy product possibilities.
The Vile Villains Jelly Belly packs were some of the first Halloween packages I found this season, though the early shipments only contained two of the characters; Captain Hook and the Evil Queen. Only in the last week did I finally find the Ursula and Cruella packages, completing my set of four. They each sport unique flavor assortments and suitably villainous names like Evil Apple and Lost Souls Mix. Here they are:
Those are pretty neat, aren’t they? It makes me wonder if they’ll expand this line beyond these four characters next year, or create releases for other holidays.
For now that’s everything I’ve got to share on Jelly Belly’s Vile Villains packaging for Halloween.
See you next time!
