354/365 Jelly beans abound

Mmm... jelly beans.

As soon as the Valentine's Day sun set, I started scouting the aisles of various stores in search of Brach's jelly beans.

I don't understand why those marketers insist on making these jelly beans disappear after Easter every year. Yes, they design special packaging for Easter, but nothing beyond that qualifies them as a solely-Easter candy.

After all, you can usually find marshmallow Peeps year-round. Those multiply like rabbits in the spring, but are often reserved a small shelf space in all four seasons.

This jelly-bean scarcity forces me to buy multiple bags at a time and hoard them when they do appear. And then, when they're gone, moan about their disappearance for the other 10 months of the year.

But now beans abound.
