Assorted Jelly Beans - 5lb
Discover all your favorite flavors in our delicious jelly bean assortment! Before we had these irresistible beans, we had the Turkish delight. This confection was made of soft jelly that was smothered in confectioner's powder.
By 1861, this unique snack would transform into the world's first jelly beans courtesy of a Boston candy maker William Schrafft. He even encouraged candy lovers to send jelly beans to Civil War soldiers as a show of support.
Even though they were created way back in the 1800s, most historians believe that the jelly bean wasn't associated with the Easter holiday until the 1930s. Today, many families have adopted this sweet trend and made it a big part of their spring celebration.
Jelly beans have even become a popular choice for other occasions, like birthday parties. Our bulk jelly bean assortment includes lemon (yellow), coconut (white), orange (orange), cherry (red), lime (green) and black licorice (black) flavors.
