Who would of ever thought that touring the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield , Sacramento would be so fullfilling and satisfying. Our blood sugar levels were raised at a safe and montiored level with one sample of the Jelly Belly beans given out in single doses along the 30 minute tour. By the time the tour of the factory was finished our appetites had been strategically primed ready to shop our little hearts out in the Jelly Belly factory store where our craving for more sugar was satiated to a point of no return. Much bargaining and bartering took place ensuring that our sugar addiction will be passed on to family and friends back in Australia.
Talking of addictions...the afternoon was filled with retail therapy outlet shopping in Vacaville, Sacramento. We were able to lower our sugar levels by walking the breadth and length of the outlet shops that took up three blocks and we even had to venture over the road to ensure that no shop had been negelcted in our search for the perfect bargain. We slept off the after affects of our frenetic day with a well earned rest by sleeping on the coach ride home back to Elk Grove and our host families satisfied that we our craving for sugar and shopping had been met.
