The 12 Best Easter Candies of All Time

4. Jelly Belly Jelly Beans

Maker: Jelly Belly

Because beans and eggs are aesthetically similar, beans decided to demand in on the  holiday shine. Jelly beans were introduced into the Easter candy mix in the 1930s. And while generic, medicinal tasting jelly beans inevitably found their way into those plastic eggs, the only ones that got our taste buds amped were those of the Jelly Belly variety. We weren't stopping until we tried every last flavor.

Didn't it make you furious when jelly beans were used as mere decorations? Loose jelly beans scattered into those shreds of paper grass in your basket? Now, why you gotta go and do that, Mom, huh?
