As a kid growing up in the Reagan administration, I couldn't understand why the President was so fond of jelly beans when he could have any candy in the world. But to each his own and as a result, Jelly Belly makes a patriotic mix of their sugary sweets. Celebrate democracy with your lil darlings and reward their good behavior at the polls today with an appropriate treat. Here are some delicious options!
- Jelly Belly's Red, White and Blue Mix ($6). The colors of the American flag are represented by Very Cherry, Blueberry and Coconut flavored jelly beans.
- American Flag Cake. This frosted treat is easy for tots to decorate with a couple of handfuls of fruit. And YumSugar offers a more difficult option for older kids too!
- Fruit Kabobs. Grade schoolers will love compiling the healthy snacks.
- Red, White and Blue Yogurt Parfaits. Enlist lil helpers to scope these celebratory treats.
