David, I had always wondered where the Jelly Bean substitution had originated. Thanks for the reference. Also, I stumbled upon this reference of a very similar study.

K L Boyd, E K Ross and S J Sherman Am J Obstet Gynecol 173(6):1889-92 (1995) PMID 8610782


If you don't read the article carefully it looks as though the jelly beans perform better, but I think you'll quickly see that the authors used the 140 mg/dL cutoff for the 50 g glucocola and 120 mg/dL for the Jelly Beans!

Thanks for that reference, Mark!
