Jelly Belly’s roots trace back to 1869, when Gustav Goelitz opened a confectionery in Belleville, Illinois. His sons carried on the family’s sweet vocation through the decades that followed, and by the 1960s, the Goelitz family name had become synonymous with tangerine slices, spice drops, and, of course, jelly beans. The Goelitz’s real breakthrough came in 1965, however, when they discovered a way to create miniature jelly beans with intensely flavored centers. This new candy quickly won a powerful fan— Ronald Reagan, then serving as governor of California. “We can hardly start a meeting or make a decision without passing the jar of jelly beans,” he wrote in a letter to the company. Whether you’re serving Jelly Belly beans at your own political meetings or just enjoying them as a casual treat, Jelly Belly coupons provide extra savings.
Half the fun of eating Jelly Belly beans is following the company’s suggested “recipes”—combinations of certain jelly beans that, eaten together, mimic the taste of treats such as wedding cake or mexican hot chocolate. Of course, many people prefer to eat the candies one at a time, relishing distinct flavors that range from watermelon to buttered popcorn. There’s an elaborate process behind each of these distinctive flavors: it takes between 7 and 21 days to make each gourmet Jelly Belly bean, as opposed to just 3 days for a typical jelly bean.
Are you craving a handful of Jelly Belly beans for a gourmet snack, or as the finishing touch to your Ronald Reagan Halloween costume? Check out Groupon’s collection of Jelly Belly coupons for savings on all your favorite flavors.
