Jelly Belly University Tour
EARN YOUR DEGREE IN BEANOLOGY BY ENROLLING IN JELLY BELLY UNIVERSITY!
For the candy lover who seeks the exclusive and personal travel experience, the Jelly Belly Visitor Center in Fairfield, California, offers a behind-the-scenes factory tour. The guided tour leads visitors through the factory for an up close and personal experience like no other. Limited to 6 (six) participants, the Jelly Belly University (JBU) tour gives fans a real education on how America's favorite gourmet jelly bean is made.
Participants will be given lab coats and hair nets before setting out on the guided tour and will soon find themselves in the heart of the factory, watching while master confectioners create Jelly Belly jelly beans and other delicious confections.
At the end of the JBU tour, which will take over one hour, visitors will receive a discount on a souvenir photo, and a discount card for shopping in the retail store.
Children must be at least 6 years of age or older to enroll. A paid adult guardian/parent MUST attend with any/all minors. Pants and closed-toe shoes are required. No high heels, sandals or flip-flops, please. The factory is wheelchair accessible. Groups of less than 6 participants will be grouped together.
Dates are typically available 6-8 weeks in advance.
JBU tours are available Monday through Friday only, except certain holidays and scheduled maintenance shut down periods. Production schedule is subject to change without notice.
