Everyone knows it's Earth Day today. Did you know that it is also National Jelly Bean Day? Jelly Beans are one of The Children's favorite candy.
If you are ever in Northern California, make sure to plan a trip to the Jelly Belly Factory. We have been twice and highly recommend the tour. You see the beans actually being made and smell in the air the sugary scent of the flavor of the day. There are some wonderful jelly bean portraits of famous people on display, like Princess Di and Ronald Reagan (Patron President of the Jelly Bean.) The highlight of the trip undoubtedly is the Jelly Belly Tasting Bar. You can check out any of the jelly beans (three at a time). Seemingly, there is no limit to how many times you line up for more flavors, so cozy on up and sample away!
