Tiny Jelly Beans

Winning caption by Lizzy:
To bean, or not to bean, that is the question.

Happy Earth Day, everyone! I tried to come up with something earthy for today’s Tiny Thing, but I’ve already knitted a Tiny Seedling, a Tiny Tree and Shrub, and a Tiny Earth. So here are some jelly beans instead!


Jelly beans are perhaps the least seriously taken food, and these guys are out to prove the world wrong! What serious thoughts do their sticky sugary Easter-y exteriors belie? Leave your caption in the comments and we’ll pick our favorite on Monday!

The winner this time will get a special springtime pattern package: Ninjabun, Rainycloud, and Which Came First!

  1. I have a caption for those adorable little jelly beans:

    “Ahhh! Don’t eat us! We don’t taste like regular fruit! We taste like ROTTEN fruit!”

  2. Our plan is almost done. We infiltrated the candy scene, made our presence known in the magical world, showed that we can be part of the sport scene providing electrolytes to runners in a fun candy form..next stop is world domination! Hahaha!!

  3. the caption will be chosen next monday…. also you should make a tiny rubber ducky or flower or a tiny envelope with stamp

  4. If I win can I pleasssssssssssssse have the tiny fruitcake pattern pleeeaaassseeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. No matter if you’re a president or a kid, we’re always your favorite “veggie”!

  6. “if I’m eaten, and die, how will the world know I’ve ever even ‘bean’ here?”

  7. Tiny Jelly Beans are happy that the 80’s are back, but still refuse to wear shoulder pads.

    No, we can’t jump. You must be thinking of someone else.

    That one’s fab :) I agree a wee flower might be good for Earth Day next year!

  9. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue jelly bean- the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the pink jelly bean – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

  10. “Look, the greatest novel ever written is definitely Russian. The only question is, is it Crime and Punishment or Anna Karenina?”

  11. if you have a bag of jelly beans and all but 16 are red all but 16 are blue all but 16 are green and all but 8 are yellow how many of each color do you have?

  12. When my doctor told me that I should make more beans because they are high in fiber, I don’t think these were exactly what he had in mind!

  13. “I know I am hard on the outside but i’m all soft and gummy on the inside.”
    “It’s hardest at the holidays, Easter the most of course.”
    “Why can’t you be more like your brother, he’s chocolate you know.”
    —-Things heard at the Jelly Bean Support Group

  14. Pink Jellybean:”I wish we could see our friends the Smarties!”

    Blue Jellybean:”And the Skittles and M&Ms!”

    Yellow Jellybean: “Oh, we’ll see all the small candies at the Annual Small Candies Convention! Thats where all small candies of the world get together and PARTY!!!!”

  15. “Ok…once we’re in the basket burrow into the grass. Then once the basket is ravaged we can make our escape!”

  16. If we get a group of us, we can take out the hollow bunny, THEN WE CAN TAKE OVER THE EASTER SCENE! We’ll be in every basket, not just some, then there will be enough of us to take out the rest of the Easter candies, and soon, THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! MUAHA!!

  17. Bean there, done that……
    We’re stuck in a rut…

    Other Bean: No! We’re stuck to the basket!!!

  18. “Did my doctor tell me to take the pink pill, the blue pill, or the yellow pill….?”

    I know, I know. Not jelly bean related, but I thought I’d throw it out there. :)

  19. Jelly Bean thought:
    Why eat beans hot?
    Why eat beans you have to cook and clean?
    Why eat dull, one-colored beans?
    Come over here and look at me!
    You don’t have to eat me hot,
    or even put me in a pot!
    I don’t have to be cleaned, just seamed!
    I come in red, yellow, purple and blue,
    And I have no calories for you!

  20. We are jellies with bellies that wellies. We come in many colours so have you tried us all flavours?

  21. Joey the jellybean was all for Easter, until he learned what people do with jellybeans AFTER they’re found in the eggs!

  22. Even if you lick us before putting us back in your brother’s basket he’ll still eat us. So don’t, please, just don’t. No really, he Will Not just let you keep us for yourself.
    *sighs* too late.

  23. I posted on the Facebook post.

    Theories of cranial size determining intelligence have been debunked! Tiny beans are the best!

  24. ” ‘Dancing Bean’, ‘Must’ve Bean Love’ or ‘Jump’? The eighties were just too good to choose from! “

  25. Blue: “I do NOT have a Jelly Belly!”
    Yellow: “Yes you do!”
    Blue: “Do not!”
    Pink: “Guys, be civil. We ALL have jelly bellies. Now, we have until the kids wake up to plan our escape! Blue, untie that ribbon!”

    HAHA! That’s hilarious!!!! :D :D :D

  27. yes silly humans keep eating us,one day we shall take over and Rise against you!

    ¡Viva la Revolución!

  28. A voice from offstage: “Man, I’m always picked last. No one likes the licorice jelly bean!”

    Also, those jellybeans are pretty much life-size…or even giant jellybeans…yet still adorable.

  29. Keep us away from Reagan!

    For those that don’t remember, our former President kept a jar of jellybeans on his desk in the oval office.
