[FHCx113] National Jelly Bean Day

Hey Jelly Bean!

IT’S NATIONAL JELLY BEAN DAY!

So the other day we dealt with Lima Beans. But rarely does anyone make the connection that the Jelly Bean is actually the Lima Bean’s cousin. That’s right, it’s part of the Fabaceae family.

That’s a lie.

These tasty, sugary, can’t-stop-eating-these-no-matter-how-much-I-want-to-right-now “beans” have BEAN around since the 1800s. Some people say since the Civil War, even. It even became slang! In the early 1900s, a “Jellybean” or “Jelly-Bean” was a young man who dressed stylishly to attract women but had little else to recommend him (Thanks, Wikipedia). I guess that’s a good way to describe a jelly bean.

Exciting, non-descript bag of jelly beans from the grocery store! We set out some of these guys in our living room for visiting guests SPam, SPuncle SPicky, and SPaunt SPatherine (this is getting ridiculous…) but apparently not all of them are fans! That’s ok.

Tomorrow is National Picnic Day and National Cherry Cheesecake Day!
