studentbeans.com and Jelly Belly launch competition for Facebook fans

studentbeans.com, the UK’s leading website for students and Jelly Belly Ltd have teamed up to launch a new social media campaign ‘What’s Your Favourite Flavour?’.

Launched yesterday on the studentbeans.com Facebook fan page, the competition shares the Flavoured Beans Gallery, a photo album containing all the Jelly Belly flavours available. Those who have ‘liked’ the page can then scroll through the album and tag themselves on their favourite flavour (there are 50 to choose from!), for the chance to win a Jelly Belly Bean Machine.

Commenting on the competition, Marketing Director of The Beans Group, Mark Edwards, says, “As our number of Facebook fans continues to grow over the 30,000 mark, competitions like this are a great way to engage with our social media fan base. The number of likes, tags and comments show that our student audience really engage with fun and colourful content.”

Victoria Reeves, Head of PR and Marketing for Jelly Belly UK says, “studentbeans.com is a wonderfully creative site that really understands its market. They also understand the Jelly Belly jelly bean market which is how they were able to come up with such a lovely campaign.”

Candy floss? Strawberry Cheesecake? Marshmallow? What’s your favourite flavour?
