Get your favorite doughnut for free at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts on National Doughnut Day, June 1

While Jelly Belly once again remarkably captures realistic flavors, this time with five Krispy Kreme doughnut flavored jelly beans, there's one flavor that was unavailable to taste at the show. The Krispy Kreme original glazed was the best among the doughnut offerings, which also included cinnamon apple filled, strawberry iced, glazed blueberry cake and chocolate iced with sprinkles, probably because of its iconic taste. But the one that wins weirdest concept? The new "Minion" movie edition Bean Boozled green jelly beans which may taste like sour apple or "Minion fart." I was advised by a source who has tasted the latter to do so in a room with excellent ventilation or outdoors.  (Louisa Chu/Chicago Tribune/TNS)
