Jelly Beans...Mmm.

I don't know about you...but when Easter is drawing near...I want Jelly Beans!
And while at the Mart a few days ago, I went up and down, back and forth that Easter candy aisle...searching to and fro, high and low. And not one bag could I find! Oh, there were Jelly Bellies, Starburst and Lifesaver flavors. Why, they even had pastel colors and speckled varieties of weird tropical flavors. And last but not least, I can't forget the Mike and Ike varieties. Alas...not one regular bag of Jelly Beans, like the ones from my childhood could I find. So, I gave up and went home Jelly Beanless...sigh.
Today, I ran to Family Dollar...Tomer was in need of Cough Drops and a bag of his favorite Butterscotch hard candies. (he keeps them on his school bus at all times) While browsing the aisles....lo and behold, there they were ...plain old regular Jelly Beans!!! Yahoo! I am happy to report that the Antique Candy Dish given to me by my Mom-in-law many years ago, is now overflowing with their deliciousness!
The only thing is...I can't keep my hand out of it! I love Jelly Beans. Oh, how I love Jelly Beans!!! Doesn't take much to make me happy!!!

Love to All!

My favorite ones are the sweet tart brand! They only come out at Easter and I can only find them at Target. I have never liked the black ones and my Hub LOVES those! I always enjoy smooches from him but not after he's had one of those! BLECH!

I love Jelly Beans too! I haven't bought any because I'd sit and eat them like popcorn. Of course, I have to go get some now! Like Connie, I hate the black ones, but the rest are all goooood!

Jelly Beans Rock! I love the "old-fashioned" ones, but must admit that some of the Jelly Belly flavors are enticing as well.

Patricia Louise, you and I share a middle name! Deborah Louise I am! And I refer to myself as Louise every time I start the van..."okay, where's the keys, Louise?" Even though in order to be grammatically correct, it should be "where ARE" the keys..."where's" just works better.

Happy Birthday! I was thinking of you yesterday - although didn't get a chance to post my wishes! May God bless you with many more years for eating Jelly Beans!
