Fun Facts

  • Cherry historically was the favorite flavor until 1998 when Buttered Popcorn flavor was introduced
  • Jelly beans have actually traveled into space on a spaceship!
  • On average it takes 7 to 21 days to make a single jelly bean
  • Each year in the U.S, there are 16 billion jelly beans manufactured just for Easter. This is enough to circle the Earth more than 3 times if they were laid end to end
  • Jelly beans use a process called “panning” which creates the hard outer shell while preserving the gooey middle
  • Jelly beans were the first candy to be sold by weight rather than by piece
  • Even though the origin of jelly beans is kind of a mystery, they’re thought to be a descendant of Turkish Delight or Jordan Almond
