No Fooling - Candy Peas & Carrots

Happy April Fool's Day - A Sweet Surprise

New from Jelly Belly - Candy Peas & Carrots have arrived at The Confectionery just in time for April Fool's Day.  The Peas are Green Apple flavor and the Baby Carrots are Orange Sherbet. Serve some with dinner, they will make your family smile! These vegetables are a sweet surprise and the kids will be sure to clean their plate. 

 Jelly Belly Candy Company has been making Candy Corn and Mellocremes since the late 1800's, longer than any company in the candy business.  Candy Peas and Carrots may seem like a new idea but candy vegetables have been around since the turn of the century. Some of the first mellocreme candy was made in vegetable shapes, which is how candy corn got it's "kernel of corn" shape.
