"You can tell a lot about a fella's character by whether he picks out all of one color or just grabs a handful." -Ronald Reagan
When Ronald Reagan ran for Governor of California in 1966, he began eating “Goelitz Mini Jelly Beans” as part of his successful attempt to give up pipe smoking. The Herman Goelitz Candy Company sent a monthly shipment to the Governor’s Office. The company also made a custom-designed jelly bean jar for Reagan.
Three and a half tons of red, white, and blue Jelly Belly jelly beans were shipped to Washington, DC every 6 months.
Herman Goelitz Candy Company provided the Reagan White House with Jelly Belly jelly beans for all eight years of Reagan’s presidency.
President Reagan’s favorite Jelly Belly flavor was licorice.
