Jelly Belly Jelly Beans

Jelly Belly jelly bean company started in Los Angeles (just like us!) back in 1976. A local candy distributor wanted to make jelly beans with natural flavoring for a gourmet jelly bean line. So he partnered up with a local candy maker and made the yummy Jelly Belly jelly beans we all love!

Bulk Jelly Belly Jelly Beans at Wholesale Prices

Jelly Belly jelly beans are known for their unique vibrant flavors and colors and their high quality in the jelly bean world. This is very much by design. Before Jelly Belly, jelly beans were merely a plain pectin center sweetened with sugar that had an outer candy coating to give it color. The flavors varied little. In 1976, David Klein changed all that.

Herman Goelitz Candy Company was a major producer of bulk candy like candy corn, mellocremes, gummi worms, and gummi bears at the time. Klein approached the family operated candy business and asked if they'd like to make a better jelly bean, one that had bold and unique flavor throughout. He proposed they use natural flavoring whenever possible, color the inside and out and keep the beans small for the ideal candy shell to inner pectin ratio. The result was a home run for jelly beans. Herman Goelitz Candy Company is now known as Jelly Belly and is to bulk jelly beans what Bubba Gump is for shrimp! They even make Sunkist Fruit Gems now! Jelly Belly sure has come a long way sine David Klein sold the first batch in an ice cream parlor near Los Angeles in 1976.

The first Jelly Belly flavors were Very Cherry, Grape, Licorice, Lemon, Green Apple, Root Beer, Cream Soda, and Tangerine. There are now well over 50 flavors of Jelly Belly jelly beans, with new ones coming out all the time. ACandyStore carries bulk jelly beans in all the standard flavors and even some of the "rookie" flavors like Pomegranate and Dark Chocolate.
