Before heading home from Napa, we made a slight detour to the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield, CA. It’s about half an hour from Napa, and the tour is free. If you want a more hands on tour, they do offer one but there is a charge for that tour.
The tour is self guided, and after you get the official jelly belly cap, visitors can follow the process of making the jelly belly from the beginning to the boxing and shipping stage.
In addition to watching the employees make the candy, there’s memorabilia and art posted all around the factory.
At the end of the tour, visitors can sample as many jelly bellies as they want… including non traditional flavors!
