National Jelly Bean Day is celebrated each year on Aril 22.   Jelly beans were, at one time, associated specifically with Easter.   However, that has changed and jelly beans are now a favorite of many and enjoyed any day of the year.

* Jelly Beans were Ronald Reagan’s favorite treat. *

William Schrafft, a Boston confectioner, urged people to send his jelly beans to soldiers during the American Civil War.  This was in 1861 and it is thought that this is when jelly beans were first introduced to the public.

According to “The Century in Food: America’s Fad and Favorites” ,  On July 5, 1905,  jelly beans were advertised  in the Chicago Daily News as being sold for 9 cents per pound.
