That's a good question. I have not tried it so I am not sure how they would survive the freezing process.

Here is very general info for freezing candy:

Freezing:

Candies Make as usual. Or, freeze commercially made candy. Package.

Using:

Thaw in wrappings at room temperature. Fat “bloom” which develops in chocolate candy during freezing should disappear. Cracks in brittle candies, chocolate-covered nuts and a few creams should disappear when candies are thawed.

Storage Length:

1 year?

I think they may become a bit graining when thawed. Maybe someone else has had some success with this.

Jelly beans would not last long enough in our house to see if they would freeze, but if no other thoughts come in, try freezing a few (25 or so) for a few weeks and take out and see what they are like. If they don't freeze, then you haven't lost much. I would wrap them airtight to be sure no moisture gets in. I have frozen candy canes before with success. Good luck!

Don't freeze-if there is the tiniest bit of moisture they'll get stuck together, colors will run. Just store unopened in a dry place and they'll keep. I found some in back of a cupboard from last year and they were as good as new.

Jellybeans would not freeze well. Do you like to fish? Native Americans use an herb wiht a licorice flavor to fish. For Catfish use the black jellybeans. I do not know what to do with the rest of them.

Since I pack a little candy bag each nite with my husbands lunch I go the first day after each holiday an stock up on all kinds of candies...what a savings !

I bought a big plastic container an stock the candies in that (of course UNopened) I have had no problems what so ever..only when I forget to pack the little candy bag in the lunch.
