"The lightbulb came on when my dad suggested: 'Why not our own Jelly Belly flavors? We are known for flavor innovation after all.'"

The Joffer Beverage Company was founded by five workers from the Jelly Belly Candy Company—a seventh-generation family business—including brothers Justin, Ben and Stephen Joffer and Andy and Becky Joffer—the sister to Lisa Brasher, CEO of the Jelly Belly Candy Company.

"The Jelly Belly brand promises fun, flavor and quality—characteristics that we believe sparkling water drinkers are looking for—and our product delivers perfectly on that promise," says Justin Joffer, a co-founder of Joffer Beverage Company. "We want to bring excitement to the sparkling water category through unique and intense flavor experiences."

With over 100 Jelly Belly flavors to choose from, the team is looking forward to developing many more flavor options as the brand grows. Fans of Jelly Belly can buy the new beverage at Hy-Vee stores, which the Joffer Beverage Company is also excited about.

"A favorite in the Midwest for its variety and quality, Hy-Vee is an ideal partner to introduce Jelly Belly Sparkling Water to consumers thirsting for something new," says Ben Joffer. "We are excited about this partnership and look forward to providing Hy-Vee customers with innovative new flavor options in the beverage aisle."

The Jelly Belly Candy Company was founded in 1898 and began making Jelly Belly jelly beans in 1976, according to the company. Today, Jelly Belly products are sold all over the world and the company remains family owned and operated by the fourth, fifth and sixth generations of the candy-making family.
