Jelly bean lovers beware: the Easter bunny might have some unusual treats stashed in your basket this year. Today's jelly bean lovers are snacking on new-age flavors such as liver, booger, ear wax and sardines. These magical candies, popularized in the Harry Potter book series and movie, are just some of the new flavors that have been introduced to keep the century-old product jumping off candy shelves.

From The Indian Express: We already know how much importance is placed on the name of a film - from adding 'lucky' letters at the astrologer's instructions to abbreviating the title. But what's equally important is the film's release date. Almost all films try to find a perfect date - perfect, both astrologically and otherwise- for their release akin to finding the perfect mahurat for a marriage ceremony. It's routine for films to continually postpone their release because of a clash with another big banner. However, April 12 will see the simultaneous release of two of the biggest films of the year - the international box office hit Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Ram Gopal Verma's much-awaited Company. What makes this move unprecedented is that although, usually, English films do not provide much competition to our desi fare, Harry Potter, despite winning nothing at the Oscars, is still a strong contender.
