According to Groovy Candies, “It wasn’t until the 1930s that jelly beans became a part of Easter traditions. The egg-like shaped jelly beans became associated with the Easter Bunny, who everyone knows delivers eggs as a symbol of new life during the spring season.”
The egg-shaped confections, made primarily of sugar, are available in an endless variety of flavors, both sweet and savory.
