Chocolate Covered Jelly Beans

I have a major sweet tooth, it's the reason that I fight with my weight constantly.  And I love holiday candies.  You know those candies that you anticipate all year long.
Easter time has always brought the best candy to the stores and, ultimately, to my various hiding places in my kitchen.  I don't share well with others...another one of  my faults.
Well, this year I have discovered a new favorite.  First of all let me tell you, I am not a big fan of jelly beans.  I do love the black ones, black licorice anything is something I love.  But this year, you may want to sit down for this, they have chocolate covered jelly beans.  I have only just discovered them.  Please don't tell me that they have been around forever.  The jelly beans actually taste all the same, which is fine with me.  But they are made so much tastier covered in chocolate.
You know, I don't even care if they have been around forever, I'm just happy that I have finally discovered them for myself.  You really need to try them, they are great.  The ones that I found are made by Ferrara, yum!
I haven't tasted the Jelly Belly ones, but I can't imagine them tasting any better.
The only complaint I have about Easter candy is that they put it out into the stores way too soon.  I have found out that you really can OD on Russell Stovers Marshmallow Eggs.
