SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Candy company Jelly Belly announced new draft beer and chocolate-covered Tabasco flavored candy beans at the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco.

Time magazine reported the company, which manufactures its famous jelly beans in Fairfield, Calif., announced its new newest flavors during the Sunday through Tuesday Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco.

The draft beer flavor, which does not actually contain any alcohol, is based on the taste of a German Hefeweizen ale, while the chocolate-covered Tabasco flavor is based on the Tabasco jelly bean first manufactured by Jelly Belly last year.

Foodbeast.com reported its representatives at the show were able to sample the draft beer beans, and the website said the candy does actually taste like beer. The website said samples of the chocolate-covered Tabasco flavor were not available.
