MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Monday is National Jelly Bean Day, and it’s kind of appropriate that it lands on the day after Easter this year, when you're hopefully swimming in a sea of jelly beans!

NationalDayCalendar.com states that jelly beans and Easter became associated in the 1930s.

Former President Ronald Reagan was a well-known fan of jelly beans, specifically the brand "Jelly Belly."

Their website states Reagan served Jelly Belly beans in the Oval Office and on Air Force One during his time in the White House.
