Jelly Belly Earphones

The very famed, branded and yummyliscious chewy jelly belly has taken another avatar now. The worlds’ best jelly beans are now taking a plunge into the gadget market by being earphones as well. The all new stereo earphones look as appetizing as its namesake. The earphones come in a combination of two attractive colors like pink and green or white and blue.

It would even double up as a Halloween costume, just like all good hoody sweatshirts do.
