National Jelly Bean Day

I always kept a jar of jelly beans on my kitchen counter, as my granddaughter Alex loved them. That is where she got the nickname JellyBean.
National Jelly Bean Day is a time to enjoy gobs and gobs of jelly beans. Anyone who loves jelly beans, knows they are not just for Easter. Sure, they are very popular at Easter. But, they are also enjoyed year round. The flavors are limited only by the imagination of candy makers. If you've never enjoyed the multitude of flavors in a box of gourmet jelly beans, the we suggest you head right out to the store and buy some.
Jelly beans date back to at least the 1860's. Advertisements promoted sending jelly beans to Union troops fighting in the Civil War. The original candy maker is unknown.
Here is the history of Jelly Bellys ... first sold at my favorite ice cream store, Fosselman's, in Alhambra.
