I once got a jar of cherry-flavoured jelly beans from a friend as a congratulation gift. She was super thrilled about it, and explained that she'd seen that I always have a little jar of cherry-flavoured jelly beans on my desk, so obviously they were my favourite, and wasn't she clever for figuring it out?
