Jelly Bean Facts

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jelly beans are a type of confectionery (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confectionery) that comes in many different (primarily fruit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruit)) flavors. They are small (the size of a red kidney bean (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_bean#Red_.28kidney.29_beans) or smaller) and generally have a hard candy shell and gummy interior. The confection is primarily made of sugar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar)

The gummy interior of the jelly bean may trace its origins back hundreds of years to a candy called Turkish Delight (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Delight), while the outside shell is essentially the same as that developed in the late 17th century for Jordan Almond (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordan_almonds) candies. The earliest known appearance of the modern jelly bean was during the American Civil War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Civil_War) when William Schrafft of Boston promoted sending the candy to soldiers in the Union Army.[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jelly_beans#cite_note-UCJB-0) It was not until 1930 or so that jelly beans became an Easter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter) candy, presumably from their resemblance to Easter eggs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_egg)[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jelly_beans#cite_note-1). Their egg-like shape was then associated with the Easter Bunny (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_Bunny), who gave out eggs on Easter.

In the 1960's when the rock and pop band The Beatles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Beatles) were on tour, fans would often toss jelly beans on stage and send them as gifts to the group.

A large jar of jelly beans sits prominently on the cabinet room table during Reagan's presidency.


In the 1980s, when Ronald Reagan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_Reagan) was President of the United States (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/President_of_the_United_States), he was known for keeping a jar of Jelly Belly jelly beans on his desk, which was credited with helping to increase the candy's popularity in the U.S.
In appearances in popular fiction and entertainment, they have been referred to as "sweetrocks" in the film Ant Bully (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ant_Bully_(2006_film)); have been used as currency in Disney's Toontown Online (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toontown_Online); and are in the title of F. Scott Fitzgerald's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F._Scott_Fitzgerald) short story (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_story) "The Jelly Bean". In Harry Potter, the students at Hogwarts eat "Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans", which come in a variety of flavors that range from revolting to delicious.

The basic ingredients of jelly beans include sugars (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugars), gelatin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelatin), corn syrup (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corn_syrup), and food starch (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Food_starch&action=edit&redlink=1). Relatively minor amounts of lecithin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lecithin) (an emulsifier (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emulsion)), anti-foaming agents, beeswax (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeswax) or carnauba wax (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnauba_wax), salt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt), and confectioner's glaze (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glaze_(cooking_technique)) are also added to the mix. The ingredients that give each bean its character are also relatively small in proportion and may vary depending on the flavor. These include natural and artificial flavors and colors, and, depending on the bean flavor, may include chocolate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chocolate), coconut (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut), fruit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruit) puree or juice, peanuts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peanut), vanilla (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanilla), oils (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil), cream (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cream), or freeze-dried (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeze-dried) egg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg), milk (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milk), or fruit powders.

Flavors

Most jelly beans are sold as an assortment of about eight more or less standard fruit flavors. Assortments of "spiced" jellybeans and gumdrops (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gumdrop) are also available, which include a similar number of spice and mint flavors. The colors of jelly beans are also more or less standardized, and a fairly typical scheme is shown in the table to the right.
ColorStandardSpicedRedCherry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherry)Cinnamon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinnamon)OrangeOrange (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orange_(fruit))Ginger (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ginger)YellowLemon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemon)Piña Colada (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi%C3%B1a_Colada)GreenLime (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lime_(fruit))Margarita (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margarita)BlueBlueberry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blueberry)Dr Pepper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr_Pepper)BlackLicorice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Licorice)Cola (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cola)WhiteVanilla (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanilla)Vanilla (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanilla)PinkCotton candy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cotton_candy)Tutti Frutti (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tutti_Frutti)
Some premium brands, such as Jelly Belly (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jelly_Belly), are available in dozens of different flavors, including berry, tropical fruit, soft drink, popcorn and novelty ranges in addition to the familiar fruit and spice flavors.[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jelly_beans#cite_note-JBF-2) While these are also sold as assortments, individual flavors can be individually purchased from distributors. The mixing of several flavors together in the mouth can form a whole new flavour entirely, such as combining

A handful of jelly beans

several fruity flavours for a fruit salad, or banana and toffee to create Banoffee Pie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banoffee_Pie). Jelly Belly stores provide "menus" of such combinations.
A version of the "Every Flavour Beans" from the Harry Potter series were made commercially available, and included flavours described as earwax, dirt, pepper, and vomit.
Some brands of jelly bean include a different flavoured filling. There are other candy products which also have a hard candy shell and a gummy interior, such as Skittles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skittles_(confectionery)). However, these are not marketed as "jelly beans" and are not typically referred to as such.

The secret life of jelly beans



http://www.latimes.com/media/photo/2008-03/36896057.jpg Email Picture (http://www.latimes.com/features/food/la-fo-jellybean19_jxbg2jnc,1,2618400,email.photo)

Anne Cusack / Los Angeles Times
LOOKIN’ GOOD: The soft centers of jelly beans derive from the exotic confection known as Turkish delight.


AH, the colors of spring -- bright red, blazing yellow and vivid green; deep purple, brilliant blue, pink dashed with scarlet -- all scattered around in little semi-orbs, like the eggs of impossibly brilliant birds. This is the season of the jelly bean.

And it's getting baroque in bean land. Forget plain lemon and cherry. You can get assortments in as many as 50 flavors -- including margarita -- or you can order a single flavor (say French vanilla) by the pound. There are "extreme" jelly beans with flavors such as garlic, for those who want to go there. We seem to be approaching the limits of what you can do with sugar, cornstarch and a vivid imagination.



That's right, sugar and cornstarch. Make no mistake, a jelly bean contains no jelly. The Beatles found this out the hard way.

In the '60s, American fans, having read that the rockers liked Jelly Babies, lovingly pelted their idols with jelly beans, under the impression that they were the same thing. Not so. Jelly Babies are soft, made out of thickened jelly. Jelly beans have a hard sugar coating. Ouch.

The "jelly" part of a jelly bean is actually what we call Turkish delight, a gently chewy cornstarch-thickened sweet that was created by an Istanbul confectioner in 1777. It reached America in the late 19th century.


That happened to be a time when there was a craze -- particularly among children -- for penny candies. (They weren't necessarily a penny apiece -- 10 cents would get you a 1-pound bag of gumdrops.)

Some unknown American candy maker had the bright idea of making a penny-candy version of Turkish delight by cutting it into tiny pieces and giving them a hard candy coating. The sugar coating protected the soft interior from dirt and created something you could carry in your pocket.

The original versions were probably cylindrical, more or less, but candy makers early on started making them in the innocently amusing shape of a bean. Jelly beans were being sold under that name at least by the 1890s.

They were too complicated for home candy makers, who stuck with their easy caramels, divinities, nut brittles and chocolates. Sugar coating, that textural key to jelly beans, requires special equipment. You moisten the bean centers with sugar syrup and toss them around in a gadget that looks like a stainless-steel cement mixer. The colliding beans beat the sugar into a thin, smooth candy coating as they dry.

This process has the odd name "panning," because the cement mixer thing is technically known as a dragée pan, dragée being the French term for sugar-coated nuts. The Jelly Belly company refers to it as an engrossing pan. No matter what you call it, it doesn't really look much like a pan.

And making the filling is even more troublesome because you have to give it the proper shape. This is done by punching bean-shaped holes into a tray of cornstarch and dropping hot, semi-liquid Turkish delight into them. After a couple of days, the bean centers will have dried and hardened enough to be "panned."

Like all panned sweets, a jelly bean needs several layers of candy coating. Until Jelly Belly introduced the flavored fillings in 1976, the filling and most of the coating were plain, and only the last layer of the coating contained any flavor or coloring.

Such cute colors

BUT the candies' appeal from the start was in their bright colors as much as their flavor. With their rainbow of hues and smooth, featureless surfaces, jelly beans gave the 1920s a slang term for a sharp-dressing but insubstantial young man. There was a pop song about it: "Jelly Bean (He's a Curbstone Cutie)."

Also in the '20s, people started putting bright, cheery jelly beans in Easter baskets, and by the '40s the association with Easter was thoroughly settled. These days, no self-respecting Easter Bunny would dare visit without leaving jelly beans.

It looks as if jelly beans have partly usurped the place of the traditional Easter egg as the brightest-colored food of the holiday. And from a kid's point of view, the logic is inescapable. Sure, it's great, messy fun to dye eggs, but who'd rather eat a hard-boiled egg than a piece of candy?

JAD

Great jelly bean inches. I left "you rock" for all and i-trader for JAD our wonderful hostess. Thanks for the extras too, JAD.
I felt like my first time making inchies was successful. I may have to try again.

YaY!! Got my beans of awesomeness!!! Thank you kindly, Quasi, Mingo, Jitterbug, Bubblecup, mynameisJenn, pennyquilter, RoOskie, Ladywatersnake & Tweety! And of course our wonderful hostess, JAD! Thank you for hosting such a fun and yummy swap and for the little bag of treats that my cat's keep trying to take off with...I just found out that my cats love to eat glitter just as much as they love paper and tape.
