The National Confectioners Association of the United States says the jellybean is a descendant of "Turkish delight," a fruit jelly candy that's been popular since Biblical times. The sugar coating comes from a process called "panning," which was invented in France in the 17th century and used to sugar-coat almonds. In the mid-1800s, an unknown American candy maker combined the two confection ideas and created jellybeans. The biggest jellybean-makers are the Maillard Corp. in New Bethlehem, PA., and Goelitz Confectionery in Oakland, California.
