Did you know that the jelly bean has a sweet history dating back to the 19th century? Believed to have originated in the United States, its exact origins remain a bit mysterious. Some attribute its creation to Boston confectioner William Schrafft, who started producing jelly beans in the 1860s, while others suggest they were inspired by Turkish delight candies. Initially, jelly beans were associated with holidays like Easter due to their egg-like shape and vibrant colors. However, they gained widespread popularity during the 20th century, becoming a staple treat in candy stores and at events like Halloween and Easter.
