April 22nd 2018 – National Jelly Bean Day

Jelly beans originated in America many years ago, with some people claiming that mention of these colourful candies go back as far as the early 1800’s but we think it’s fair to say that these fruity flavoured sweets have stood the test of time.

Available to buy from hundreds of different brands around the world and a never-ending selection of flavours now available to choose from, we don’t think it gets better than the classic colours and fruity flavours which is why they’re the jelly beans we choose to stock here at Retro Sweet.

We have a range of jelly bean products available to buy, including a whole range of gifts that are perfect for real lovers of this colourful confectionary and seeing as today is National Jelly Bean Day, we thought we’d share with you the perfect presents to gift true jelly bean fans.
