J is for Jelly Beans

Why not?  Jelly Beans are great!  Here's a few fun things with jelly Beans........because I can't think of anything else without getting hormonal and downright unpleasant.  I had a boyfriend (well, if you count relationships in the 5th and 6th grade) who once gave me a large jar of jelly bellies.......i sometimes think about that jar and wish that maybe something similar would appear for mother's day or my birthday or, at this point, waiting for me in my room the moment after i deliver.  They are so perfect.....just a tiny bite, so no over-indulgence (fingers crossed behind back) and so many different flavors!  OK, I'm ridiculous, i know.  Ah, well, some love me!

Jelly Beans
Jelly beans, jelly beans, shifting in the jar.
Searching and looking, where the pink ones are.

I spot one here, I spot one there,
they shift around, it's just not fair!

White and black ones go away.
Pinks and reds can always stay.

Searching for jelly beans, big mistake!
The jar falls down, crashes and breaks!

Jelly beans, jelly beans, bouncing everywhere.
This really isn't FAIR!

Jelly Beans

I love my jelly beans
I even love machines
That make my jelly beans

Red, pink, purple, and blue
I will all chew
If only you knew
I'd even eat them out of my shoe

One bean, two beans, three beans, a million
I'd even eat one hundred billion

I'd eat them non stop
I'd eat them right in the candy shop
I'd eat them until my tummy would pop

You can never have to many
I never heard of anyone that didn't have any
People always have plenty

Eat until I don't have anymore
Always wish I had some more...
...Back to my candy drawer 


  1. What a sweet post!! I love them too! The black ones! Cute, cute post and I enjoyed it very much!!

    1. ever notice that almost all jelly bean eaters like almost all the flavors, but there is a great divide between those who like the black ones and those who do not!

  2. Root beer jelly beans are my favorite. Now, you've got me wanting some. :-) I agree with Sandy, this was a trés cute post.
