Jelly Belly Gift Boxes are the perfect gift. If your friend, family member or colleague is considered a connoisseur by you, then what could be better than giving them a selection of the worlds best jelly beans to try, analyse, report on and enjoy... If you're lucky, they'll also value the opinion of others and give you a chance to try them all. If your friend needs a little more impressing than usual, you can simply tell them some of these amazing facts. The original eight flavours of Jelly Belly beans introduced in 1976 were Very Cherry, Root Beer, Cream Soda, Tangerine, Green Apple, Lemon, Licorice and Grape. In 1981, for the inauguration of Ronald Regan, Jelly Belly released the Blueberry flavour and then in 1983 they sent the first Jelly Belly jelly beans into space on the space shuttle Challenger. And, the next time you think of jelly beans as just simple little lollies, think again. It takes 7 - 14 days to make each and every little Jelly Belly Jelly Bean. Now that a labour of Jelly Belly love!
