Full Answer

The characters in the Harry Potter movies have a love-hate relationship with these jelly beans. Harry's introduction is on his first ride on the Hogwarts Express where other creepy snacks are available, including jelly slugs. Dumbledore, upon observing Harry's beans, comments that he had the unfortunate experience of coming across a vomit-flavored bean and no longer enjoys them.

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. While manufacturers package most jelly beans in packs of eight or fewer flavors, Bertie Bott's beans have 20 flavors.
