Jelly Beans

Jelly beans are another truly iconic take on the jelly sweet. It's likely that, like us, you've been eating them from a young age and still get excited by the different colours and flavours now!

Jelly beans were originally enjoyed as a Christmas sweet, however, in the 1930s people started to include them around Easter time because of their likeness to eggs! Did you know it can take almost three weeks for jelly beans to be created due to the lengthy and manufacturing process involved - we think that the workmanship that goes into jelly babies makes them a sweet worth admiring and savouring. We stock both regular Jelly Beans, and the more elite - Gourmet Jelly Beans. Order them here:
