April 22nd National Jelly Bean Day

Ronald Reagan loved jelly beans. Actually, most people love jelly beans, and what’s not to love!?! You can get nearly any flavor you like and even some you can’t describe. Jelly Beans were first created for Union troops during the American Civil War who could carry them with them for a quick snack and pick-me-up on their long marches. While the flavors were probably limited, the enjoyment wasn’t as Union soldiers enjoyed their treats by the handful.

How to celebrate – Studied the history of the Jelly Bean. Check out all the new flavors available. Keep a stash of Jelly Beans available for friends and family.
