Beware of jelly beans
With Easter coming up, especially, I thought you all might need to know this, too. I found out the hard way that many of the Jelly Belly jelly beans have caffeine in them. It's not a lot, but it's enough that they bother me. I'm actually OK with other jelly beans.
Hopefully you all can learn from my mistakes!

I've not had any because of artificial colors & citric acid.

I was surprised that the other stuff hasn't seemed to bother me, but it hasn't. Just that darn caffeine. But, I can't complain too much about that.

Easter is my favorite candy season and I am finding it very hard to resist the Canbury Mini Eggs . I don't really like jelly beans so I should be good in that area. Thanks for the tip though.Tiffany
