|Jelly Beans are the Easter candy we love to eat any time of year. We also have Jelly Belly jelly beans.
Jelly Beans first appeared during the Civil War when William Schrafft of Boston promoted sending the candy to soldiers in the Union Army. It was not until 1930s that jelly beans became an Easter candy, presumably from their resemblance to Easter eggs. They are some times called Jelly Eggs.
