The first eight Jelly Belly flavors were Very Cherry, Lemon, Cream Soda, Tangerine, Green Apple, Root Beer, Grape and Licorice.  It wasn’t until President Reagan was elected president that the idea for blue jellybeans emerged so that he could serve red, white and blue beans at his inaugural parties. So, when you’re eating a handful of your favorite candy to celebrate National Jelly Bean Day today, be sure to thank the electoral college for making this all possible.
