Assorted Pastels Boston Baked Beans Candy: 5LB Bag
Have you ever wondered why sugar coated peanuts go by the name "Boston Baked Beans"? We haven’t -- we’ve been too busy enjoying them by the handful! However, for the sake of history, we’ll mention that early in the 20th century, New England candy makers learned that by using the cold panned process to add sugar and red dye to peanuts, they could create a treat that resembled actual Boston Beans. "Boston Baked Beans" quickly became a generic term in the candy industry, given to all peanuts coated in sugar.
For this reason, it's perfectly acceptable for these pastel-colored treats to go by the name without feeling like impostors. It’s all the delicious, sweet, peanutty taste expected of Baked Beans candy, just coated in a springtime-appropriate shell! Pretty and colorful, these may just make all your plain red baked bean candies jealous.
