The Candyman

Candyman David Klein shares details about his candy making career, including the development of the (world famous) Jelly Belly jelly beans at his Candyman Kitchens location in Clearwater. In 1976, Klein came up with the idea for a new type of jelly bean—later called Jelly Belly—with flavored jelly beans, including Very Cherry, Tangerine, Lemon, Green Apple, Grape Jelly, Licorice, Root Beer, and Cream Soda. In 1980, Klein and his partner sold their interest in the jelly beans, which are now made with 50 official flavors. Today he has relocated to Florida from California with the intention of giving back to the candy community by helping local confectioners develop, market and distribute their candy ideas.
