The candy company that put the gourmet jelly bean on the map became known worldwide when Jelly Belly® beans were taken to the White House during the Ronald Reagan administration. The company has been making candy since 1869 and is operated by descendants of the Goelitz family. Known for decades for making quality confections, the company still cooks up a huge range of nostalgia and gourmet candies. The creation of Jelly Belly® jelly beans brought the world a new standard for taste and style. Today, Jelly Belly® beans celebrate fun and flavor, and are the leading jelly bean brand.
