I like Jolly Ranchers because they are sweet and DELICIOUS! Jolly Ranchers were first made by the Jolly Rancher Company in 1949. They are basically a hard sugar candy flavored with fruit flavored syrups. There are many Jolly Rancher flavors, such as blue raspberry, cherry, watermelon, grape, and green apple. They also have sour flavors and chewy candy. Jolly Ranchers are diverse in flavor and delicious.
