Jelly beans
Jelly beans are small, bean-shaped sweets with a hard candy shell and a chewy interior. They come in a variety of colors and flavors, with the most popular being cherry, licorice, and grape. On average, there are about 50 jelly beans in a three-ounce package. Jelly beans have been around since the 1800s, when a Boston confectioner created a candy in the shape of a bean. It was initially called “Bean-shaped gum drops,” but eventually became known as jelly beans. Jelly beans are often used in games, such as guessing how many are in a jar. They are also used to make decorations, such as Easter egg trees. Fun fact: Former U.S. President Ronald Reagan was so fond of jelly beans that he had a special flavor created for the White House – a combination of cherry and orange flavors.
