Jelly beans are a type of confectionery that’s small, bean-shaped, and comes in a wide variety of colors and flavors.

The candy has a soft, chewy interior with a slightly firmer outer shell, which is typically made from sugar, tapioca or corn syrup, and food starch. The texture contrast between the shell and the interior is one of the distinctive features of jelly beans.Flavors of jelly beans range from traditional fruit flavors, like cherry, orange, and lemon, to more unique and sometimes surprising flavors such as buttered popcorn, licorice, and even spicy cinnamon. Some brands have also created collections of jelly beans that are themed around specific taste experiences, offering flavors that mimic everything from tropical fruits to gourmet sodas.Jelly beans are popular around Easter, partly due to their egg-like shape, making them a common inclusion in Easter baskets and springtime celebrations.

However, their appeal is not limited to this season; they are enjoyed year-round by people of all ages. The wide variety of flavors and colors, along with their small size, makes them a fun and versatile treat, suitable for decorations, party favors, and as a sweet snack.
