The Siren Song of Jelly Beans

April 4, 2018



Classic jelly beans are one of my all-time favorite candies.  I usually only eat them around Easter, and even then, a solid handful is about all I can manage before a sugar coma sets in.

I have fond memories of when I was a very young teen and my mom would deposit a couple of friends and me at the local shopping mall, where we would spend the day trying on clothes and creating wish lists.  One of the highlights was visiting the candy counter at J. C. Penney’s department store and treating myself to twenty-five cents’ worth of jelly beans.  Back then, that amount could fill a bag.
