A Sweet Look at the History of Jelly Beans

Nothing screams “Easter!” quite like a delicious handful of jelly beans, don’t you think?! Kids and adults alike love munching on these little sugary sweet treats, full of both sweet and savory flavors. While fruity tends to be the classic go-to, candy producers such as Jelly Belly have been a bit more creative in their tastes, with flavors such as toothpaste, glass, and lint!

Regardless of whether you opt for fruity flavors such as lemon or watermelon, or you dare to indulge on those unique tastes, it still remains a mystery as to where these little guys originated! However, we do know a few things…

Throughout the centuries, jelly beans have taken many forms before becoming what we know today. In ancient Rome, Turkish Delights were comparable to today’s modern jelly beans. Turkish Delights were made of a jelly-like sugar and rosewater mixture coated with powdered sugar. Over the decades this recipe was adapted to include different flavors and ingredients. Somewhere in history – though it is unknown where – a candy coating was introduced, which paved the way for jelly beans as we now know them.

Americans first began munching on today’s modern jelly beans during the Civil War when they were commonly sent to soldiers as a sweet (un-meltable) treat. In the 1930s, jelly beans made their way into Easter baskets. They were small, flavorful, and again, didn’t melt, making them the perfect spring-time treat! Today, Americans consume close to 16 billion jellybeans at Easter time.

While the true history of jelly beans remains a mystery, there’s no denying that we sure do love this classic Easter candy!

Perfect Your Easter Egg Hunt!

Once the weather starts to warm up after the long, cold winter, we all come down with a little spring fever! Those first days where the temperature reaches the 50s seem like a gift from heaven, and pretty soon, we know we’ll be seeing flowers sprouting! One of the best parts of spring is the Easter holiday. What says “warm weather” quite like an annual Easter egg hunt?

Easter egg hunting became a popular Easter tradition in America in the 1700s. German immigrants settled in Pennsylvania and brought with them this quirky annual Osterhase tradition. Soon, the fun family activity gained popularity all over the nation. Originally, hard-boiled eggs were used, but as time went on, delicious Easter candy was incorporated into the hunt.

At Blair Candy, we want you to have an Easter eggs hunt that your family will remember forever. Here are some yummy treats you can integrate into your hunt!

  • Wonka Outdoor Egg Hunt Kit – Willy Wonka does it again with this easy to use Egg Hunt Kit! This kit comes with everything you need to kickstart your Easter egg hunt.
  • Wonka Indoor Egg Hunt Kit – The thing about spring is you never know when it will be a rainy day. This kit from Wonka is specifically designed for indoor hunts, just in case your outdoor hunt is a wash!
  • Easter Egg Hunt Candy – This massive bag contains a mix of all the candy you and your family love. Be sure to be well-stocked!

Chocolate Easter Eggs: The Sweetest Selection!

When we think of Easter candy, there are a few things that come to mind straight away. These include jelly beans, marshmallow Peeps, and of course, chocolate Easter eggs. While jelly beans were once available in just two varieties – spice and fruit – today we can find jelly beans from many of our favorite candy brands, including Mike and Ike and Jolly Rancher jelly beans. As for marshmallow Peeps? They have expanded as well. And not just the way they expand if you microwave them! But the truly indulgent side of Easter candy belongs to chocolate eggs, and BlairCandy.com offers an array of mouthwatering delights that every bunny will enjoy. Here are a few top picks…

Gardner’s Chocolate Eggs: To simply breathe in the intoxicating aroma of Gardner’s eggs is to know you have some seriously top quality chocolate on your hands! We have offered Gardner’s eggs every Easter for many years, and the demand for these rich and creamy confections never wavers. Choose from Chocolate Fudge Nut, Butter Cream, Coconut, All Nut, Cashew Meltaway, Fruit and Nut, Maple Cream and Nuts, and my favorite, Peanut Butter Meltaway.

Zitner’s Chocolate Eggs: Another name that many turn to Easter after Easter is Zitner’s. A candy company whose beginnings were more than 90 years ago, many of us in the Northeast have been enjoying Zitner’s as far back as we can remember! Best known for their insanely delicious Butter Krak eggs, we also have their dark chocolate covered Marshmallow eggs available. But you should act fast – Zitner’s are an affordable treat and sell out quickly!

Cadbury Eggs: You didn’t think we’d forget these classics, did you? How could we?! Every Easter we put in an order that rivals the one the Easter Bunny himself must place, and every year we sell every last egg. Our selection includes classic Cadbury Crème Eggs, Cadbury Mini Crème Eggs, and the speckled spectacular sweets known as Cadbury Mini Eggs!
