Nutritionally complete… jelly beans??!

Well, they’ve finally done it… After much talk of fortifying junk foods it seems that the food industry has won out over the nay sayers. The first “food” to hit the market later this summer will be fortified jelly beans. The press release states that:

Everyone loves candy but we’re always being told to eat our vegetables. Now you can get all of your vitamins, and other essential nutrients while enjoying the delicious flavours of jelly beans that you’ve always loved.

Apparently, these jelly beans have been manufactured to provide all essential vitamins and minerals so that, in theory, you truly could live on candy alone.
