Class Action

Jelly Belly Jelly Beans

A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against Jelly Belly Candy Company in December 2016. The complaint alleges that the company misleadingly labels its jelly beans – including its Superfruit Mix, Sports Beans, and Sports Beans Extreme – as containing evaporated cane juice when, in reality, they contain sugar. The lawsuit was transferred to federal court in January 2017. (Allen et al v. Jelly Belly Candy Company, Case No. 17-cv-588, E. D. MO.)
