Turkish Delights begat Jelly Beans

A useless food factoid. This morning The View had a segment on Easter Candy which was really cool in that it showed pictures of all of these candies being made in factories.

There is something really creepy about that army of peeps going down the factory conveyor.

Anyway that's when I learned about the TD/JB connection. Looked it up and sure enough.

I don't know why it is so cool that Turkish Delights may have inspired Easter Jelly Beans. The world united through food.

The Jelly Belly site has more facts. They say that the creator of the actual jelly bean is unknown, but the guy on The View had a name.

Time to go out and buy a few jelly beans.
