A guy at work (Thanks Kieran) recently brought in a big box of The Jelly Bean Factory jelly beans which inevitably ended in me grabbing a handful every time I passed the open jar of deliciousness.
Google couldn't tell me the Weight Watchers pro-points in the beans and I couldn't find any Nutritional Information on the packaging. I ended up contacting The Jelly Bean Factory through Facebook who got back to me with this unhelpful information about the beans:
Using my rough and ready 40kcal = 1pp rule, that makes 100g of Jelly Beans 10pps. So I wanted to know how many jelly beans are there in 10g. The answer... Between 12-14. Yes, I had my electronic scales and I weighed various combinations of beans and found on average 12 beans = 10g = 1 propoint. And what does 1 propoint of beans look like I hear you say:
Now while this is all well and good, my problem lies in the fact it is impossible not to take a small handful from a 1.4kg tub when your handful doesn't even make a dent in the packaging. I've made it my mission to find out exactly how many points are in them and when I was in Tesco this evening (looking at the Christmas stuff), I found the Nutritional Information on the back of one of their packaging:
I can confirm that 100g (approx 120 beans) = 10 pps!
It would be easier to crack the Da Vinci Code!

10 Propoints in the 100g Tub
20 Propoints in a 200g Tub
