Surviving Jelly Beans


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Every year at Easter I have the same problem. My favorite candy is Sweetart Jelly Beans. They are only available at this time of year and so are a blessing and a curse. I can't get them year round so I want to eat as many as I can. This year I bought snack sized zip-top bags, divided up all of the beans I bought into servings and numbered the bag. So far it's working and I'll be getting my cand out of season!

    This is probably my all-time favorite snack as well! I have been portioning the candy in bags as well and snacking throughout the day on just one serving. So far so good, I have a completely unopened bag in the pantry... before, that was unheard of three days after Easter!
