You’ve heard of Christmas in July, right? So there’s absolutely no reason not to celebrate Halloween at Easter. This week, let’s look at some of the ways we can fill a special Scary Easter Basket for our horror-loving friends. So far we’ve added Cadbury Screme Eggs, a plush Feisty Bunny, a chocolate zombie bunny, and intricate horror dioramas made with marshmallow Peeps! Today we’re adding that black goth treat: black jelly beans.

Black Jelly Beans (loose)Black jelly beans are one of the all-time polarizing Easter goodies. Even in my own family, the Weremoose loves black jelly beans and buys them by the bag full. I, on the other hand, prefer my jelly beans without a strong, over-powering taste of licorice.

This is an important difference. According to the Nola Media Group, studies have now shown that the jelly bean color you prefer is an indicator of your personality. And if you choose black, you are a super-great person – you smile a lot, are enthusiastic, and are always playful. Photo Credit: Ferrara Candy Company
