Fun Observances

Jelly Bean Day

April 22 is Jelly Bean Day. It is an unofficial holiday that honors the sugary bean-shaped candies that are hard on the outside and gel-like on the inside.

Popular during Easter and Halloween, jelly bean candies come in a variety of flavors and colors.

Cherry and Popcorn

According to Jelly Belly, a popular jelly bean manufacturer, the most popular jelly bean flavors include cherry and buttered popcorn.

Food historians believe that Turkish delights or lokum, a chewy candy from Turkey, inspired the creation of the jelly beans, though it is unclear who invented them.

Presidental Favorite

Some sources suggest that jelly beans were popularized during the American Civil War when people were encouraged to send the candy to soldiers in the field.

Jelly beans are equally loved by children and adults alike. President Ronald Reagan was known to be a big fan of this delicious chewy candy, so much so that about 3 tons of red, white, and blue jelly beans were used during his inauguration as the 40th President of the United States in 1981. It is said that his favorite flavor was licorice.

How to Celebrate?

  • Have jelly beans with all your meals.
  • What about trying bacon flavored jelly beans for breakfast?
  • Been told that you don’t eat enough fruits? Eat a handful of fruit-flavored jellybeans.
  • Make art using colorful jellybeans.

Did You Know...

...that it can take anywhere from 7 to 21 days to make a single piece of jelly beans?

"Boys just like one thing," my ten-year-old told a friend.

Oh, no, the end of her innocence, I thought. Then she announced her finding:

"PlayStations."

My sister explained to my nephew how his voice would eventually change as he grew up. Tyler was exuberant at the prospect.

"Cool!" he said. "I hope I get a German accent."

According to careerbuilder.com, a full 15 percent of workers admit to getting to the office late at least once a week. And here are some of their excuses:

I have transient amnesia and couldn’t remember my job.

I was indicted for securities fraud this morning.

Someone stole all my daffodils.

I had to go audition for American Idol.

I was trying to get my gun back from the police.

Here's a job to avoid: hiring manager. See what you'd have to contend with?

The candidate answered his cell phone and asked the interviewer to leave her own office because it was a "private" conversation.

The candidate told the interviewer he wouldn't stay with the job long because he might get an inheritance if his uncle died—and the old man wasn't "looking too good."

The candidate said she couldn't provide a writing sample because all her writing had been for the CIA and it was "classified."

When the applicant was offered food, he declined, saying he didn't want to line his stomach with grease before going out drinking.

The candidate flushed the toilet while talking to the interviewer during a phone interview.
