Jar of Jolly Good Ranchers, Are you still there?

Yes, we are still here, now guess on this to get some free candy!

I know its been a while, longer then you expected. Don't worry, we are still here... We needed to get all of our ducks in a row. In order to win this next item, you need to be jollier then the jolly green giant. The real question is why are they called Jolly Ranchers? I did some research and couldn't find a definitive answer. Does anyone have any insight to add in the comments below about the history?
