    Is that that Alladin guy or some other generic Disney character in what looks like a spandex dress and tasteful belt popping out of the jellybeans? Regardless, the product name is an excellent play on words.

    I wonder what makes these jellybeans so legendary other than they’ve split the word up into two separate words, jelly and beans? And the outfit, of course. The 80s hair band deserves a shout out as well.

    Do you know what year these were made?

    As for the Legendary part, didn’t one of the Three Kings from the East (Brooklyn, perhaps?) offer the gift of Jelly Beans to the baby King Of The Jews? Gold, Maccabeans Frankincense Jelly Beans, and Myrrh. The Ye Men guys. The character on the package looks like the buffed out ideal of an Israeli personal trainer to The Bee Gees with that 80s headband. . . . Oy!
