The Civil War is the first historic appearance of jelly beans. They have a center similar to Turkish delight, a candy appearing hundreds of years earlier. The harder exterior candy shell is similar to a Jordan almond. The basic ingredients include sugar, corn syrup and corn starch. They also have trace amounts of anti-foaming agents, lecithin, wax, salt and confectioner's glaze. Flavors and colors vary by the bean.
