So these Jellybeans on my nightstand. I guess we're all wondering how many I have, right?
Okay, here is the deal: I like Jelly Belly beans. I really like them. Sometimes I have four pounds of them in a jar on my desk. Okay, so maybe that is a lot of candy to have casually sitting around, but could you really expect anything less with my sweet tooth?
Well, I didn't have four pounds laying around last weekend. No. I had been nibbling on these beans for a couple months now, digging out the choice beans--like black licorice and juicy pear. So when I did the count last Saturday all that remained were 255 beans. Weighing a total of 283 grams.
I've gone through all the guesses on the blog and in the NSHP email box and calculated who was closest with beans or grams and determined it was M with 292 grams:
Congratulations! I'll be in contact with you via email and I'll have this cookbook to you soon. I hope you enjoy it. Of course, if you end up re-selling it on amazon for a cool two or three hundred dollars, I can't say I wouldn't understand.
As for myself, I'm going to spend the rest of the weekend continuing to pack. No baking for me just yet, all my pans are already boxed up waiting on paperwork and a set of keys to finally change hands.
I deserve a break from all this bubble wrap and packing tape. Maybe even a little indulgence in two guilty pleasures: a little world of warcraft and the rest of those jelly beans. Yum.
Edit: Woo! It appears that as of March 8th, Amazon actually has the book back in stock for list price. I'm not certain if it is back in print, but it is certainly going for less than $999 today. Take that, price gougers!
