I have one betta who just won't eat pellets...he is really small. However, my female betta, also very tiny, eats them. I just think some betta prefer flakes. Kalani is my only one who eats flakes..I still offer a pellet or two now and then, but so far it's flakes for that little guy.

My fish hate pellets. They spit them back out like you said. I feed them flakes, and they gobble them right up. It's true they are messier though.

I've been very vigilant about how much I give her. She only gets as many as she can eat in a minute, I put a few crunched flakes in at a time so that very few fall to the bottom. I'll keep trying on the pellets though, I know that the flakes I have now have WAY more nutritional value than the pellets I have. It will be a while before I can get other brands as the closest pet store is 3 hours away, and it would take a good week or more to get an online order (yes, I am in a pretty rural place). She does get a few freeze dried blood worms once a week and she gets fruit flies as I can catch them (we've had a horrible infestation of them this summer!) Don't worry, the fruit flies come from all organic foods.
