Bean There, Ate That

We may have encountered jelly beans as retro sweets when we were kids but they've actually been around since nearly a century. Everybody just loves this sweet concoction of sugar, gelatin, corn syrup and food starch and their appeal isn't waning. In fact, jelly beans and the rest of our favorite old-fashioned sweets are back, thanks to wholesale retro sweetshops for bringing these sweeties back to life (although they were never really gone.)

Jelly beans have always been around with their characteristic tough coating and chewy core. This was exactly what we loved about them when we were kids, but it was also why mom never made them like she would make us lollipops and caramels. It actually takes a special technique called sugar panning to create these sweet little beanies. It also took a machine and other specialized equipment but nevertheless, even if mom never made them, we were crazy about them.

The brands we drooled over, Jelly Bean Love Hearts, Assorted Gourmet Jelly Beans Bucket, Dinky Glass Jar - Assorted Gourmet Jelly Beans, Caribbean Coconut Gourmet Jelly Beans, Strawberry Smoothie Gourmet Jelly Beans, Tangerine Gourmet Jelly Beans, Blueberry Pie Gourmet Jelly Beans, Glass Gift Jar - Gourmet Jelly Bean and more, are still available today. If you don't want to deal with the disappointment of not finding what you're looking for, buy from an online wholesale retro sweetshop as they usually have the widest varieties available. The same old different fruit, spice and novelty flavors will be available for your picking. Whether you want berry, cola, mint, orange or whatever it was that made you such a bean tooth, you can place orders from either for an assortment of flavors or for any one in particular. You can also buy the spiced ones with gumdrops or any other combination you might want to suggest.

Those old-fashioned sweets have, indeed, been more than candy to most of us. At the very least, they've become a culture altogether. Each year, manufacturers produce more than 15 billion beans in the US alone and for Easter alone. Imagine how much the world makes the whole year through! If they weren't such a phenomenon, April 22 wouldn't be National Jelly Bean day.

Best of all, these beanies make up part of our childhood that we know we'll never get over. But who says we need to? For your high school reunion, order jelly beans along with other wholesale retro sweets and get everyone all nostalgic. Surely, the party will end with a lot more laughter and tears for the fun of being able to relive those memories that come with each jelly bean you pop.
