In my family's opinion, not all beans are created equal. We love Jelly Belly and Brach's Classic beans but now we need to invite my dad over to eat up the black beans. I guess that's all they had growing up.
Surfing around today I found this cute kids activity with jelly beans. Have the kids plant some jelly beans (because our ground is still frozen we'll do this inside in some cups). Have the kids water them. Then on Easter morning swap the jelly beans with lollipops instead!
- there is no jelly in a jelly bean
- it wasn't until the 1930's that jelly beans became part of Easter traditions
- because of their egg-like shape they became associated with the Easter bunny who is believed to deliver eggs as a symbol of new life
- each year the U.S. manufacturers produce more than 16 billion jelly beans for Easter
- April 22 is National Jelly Bean Day!
Who knew? So what's your favorite bean?
