April 14 2011, 2011 -- When a couple from Somerset, England, recently opened a candy jar from The Jelly Bean Factory, who should appear but Kate Middleton, manifest in all her jelly bean glory.
Wesley Hosie, 25 and his girlfriend Jessica White, 24, discovered the mango-flavored bean in a 700-gram jar of candies. They thought Kate's face was clearly seen in the red speckles on the bean's surface.
"As Jessica opened the jar, I saw her immediately. She was literally lying there staring back at me," Hosie told The Telegraph.
The couple has kept the jelly bean and plan to sell it on eBay for about $815.
"Given that the royal wedding is only a few weeks away, we hope to make a few pounds out of it by selling it to a collector," explained Hosie.
Richard Cullen, Managing Director of The Jelly Bean Factory in Dublin, said he was flabbergasted by the bonbon with an uncanny resemblance to the future princess.
"This sounds truly incredible, I would have to see the bean myself to believe it," he said.
Now that the royal wedding is only 15 days away, it seems Kate and Wills' love is so sweet, even a jelly bean wants in on the action!
