RATE IT! National Jelly Bean Day

Today, April 22 is universally known as 'Earth Day' - an occasion where earnest folk mark our responsibility to the planet, to each other. A time to plant trees, encourage recycling and being kinder to this wonderful world we live in.

April 22 is also National Jelly Bean Day - a day to kick up our heels to fete this simple sugary treat! Apparently the origin of this celebration is unknown but it would be neat to think that the creator wanted to break the seriousness of 'Earth Day' up with some silly, sassy multi-coloured candy fun. Sure, we want to save our planet but also enjoy the frivolous delights that make life worth living.
