The History Of National Jelly Bean Day

Easter has been associated with jelly beans for the longest time, so it is possible the date of April 22nd was assigned as National Jelly Bean Day. However, that is speculation. In the mid 19th century, jelly beans were developed to add extra spice to the Easter celebration. It was believed that the jelly bean was a cleaner version of the Turkish delight. However, there is no known tie to that. Throughout the 20th century, jelly beans had various uses, and one famous use of the jelly bean was through the Harry Potter series. Any assortment of jelly beans represented anything you can imagine yourself being. That is just an example of how the jelly bean expanded in other life areas away from Easter.
