The candy that would evolve into the modern-day jelly bean was first developed for and promoted to Union Soldiers during the American Civil War. Over a century later, Laffy Taffy was created in the same country. A few decades after that, something positively phenomenal was born. And while we don’t know exactly how the concoction came about, we have a pretty good idea of how it must have happened: One of the mad scientists over in Willy Wonka’s candy laboratory was probably holding a tub of Laffy Taffy mix when he tripped (whilst attempting to sneak a taste of the treat, we bet). The Laffy Taffy ingredients poured straight into the jelly bean machine, and all the Oompa Loompas were obviously outraged that he had ruined such a large amount of their favorite stretchy confection!
But ruin things, he did not. Instead, he had accidentally created an ingenious new way to enjoy that chewy delectableness, in a tried and true, munchable jelly bean form! If you love jelly beans and adore Laffy Taffy, then you’ll go bananas for these chewy treats! (Literally, as there’s actually a banana flavor… along with yummy cherry, grape, and apple varieties as well!) Bite size ovate candies rocking the chewy texture of jelly beans are bursting with all of the outrageous fruity flavor you’d expect from Laffy Taffy -- it’s like a match made in candy heaven!
