...and National Jelly Bean day too. We believe both are a cause for commemoration.
Some facts you might not know, from my FAVE Jelly Belly Belly bean:
It takes 7 to 21 days to make a single Jelly Belly jelly bean.
The first jelly bean was created by an unknown American candy maker in the 1800s. An 1861 advertisement recommended sending jelly beans to soldiers fighting in the Civil War.
Very Cherry remained the most popular flavor of Jelly Belly beans for two decades until 1998, when Buttered Popcorn moved into first place. In 2003 Very Cherry moved back into top position by a mere 8 million beans.
Enough Jelly Belly beans were eaten in the last year to circle the earth more than five times.
The original eight flavors of Jelly Belly beans introduced in 1976 were Very Cherry, Root Beer, Cream Soda, Tangerine, Green Apple, Lemon, Licorice and Grape.
Hope you day is both bright and green.
