Today, 22nd April,2015, is National Jelly Bean Day.
Let’s face it we all love a jelly bean, whether they come in a packet or a glass jar it’s all about finding your favourite flavour whether that’s toasted marshmallow or cotton candy and what better way to celebrate National Jelly Bean Day than to sample a few (packets!).
So how will you celebrate Jelly Bean day? Will you mark the day by making The Ultimate Jelly Belly Cake? you’ll find the recipe at www.jellybelly-uk.com
As we’re Christmas crazy we got to thinking about how we could incorporate jelly beans into our annual festivities.
Why not encourage the kids to make personal Christmas presents by using thread elastic and a needle to create individual bracelets or necklaces. They’ll look and taste great!
Decorating the Christmas tree is always exciting for kids and in the run up to the festive season why encourage them to get a little crafty and make some tree garlands. Using a needle and thread get them to string together their favourite jelly beans to make their own Christmas tree garland.
What would your favourite Christmas flavoured jelly bean be? We were thinking about sage and onion stuffing, Christmas pudding and brandy sauce, cranberry, mince pie, or a selection purely for the over 18’s in the family – brandy, tia maria, whisky or sherry.
