Blah, never knew that. First lazy and now a murderer, geez lol
Very interesting Rosey! It is the first time I am hearing about these beans.
I have not seen those since I was a kid and that was a very long time ago, lolCreate Positive Change WW
I remember these from when I was a kid. Jumping beans were so fun then, I'll be they still are today.
I have not seen these in a very very long time
I remember these from when I was a kid.
Oh yuck! I never knew that!
Interesting. I never knew that. I'd be curious to know what happens to them if humans didn't touch them. Assume they pop out of the shell somehow?
Yup never knew that and will make sure to steer clear of that now. Thanks Rosey!!
Those were so much fun. I used to love them as a kid but am not crazy about them now that I know the secret.http://joycelansky.blogspot.com/2013/08/wordless-wednesday-news-or-beginning-of.html
Kind of gross. Oh well, they're still fun.
BTW their name shouldn't be Mexican Jumping Beans. It should be Moth Jumping Beans.
I didn't realize you could still get them.
I remember those from my childhood! Didn't know they were moths.....
I never had them myself, but did know they were moth's in there. Kind of gross lol
I saw these at the El Paso airport!
So, I'm not supposed to eat them?
Def. not for consumption. ;)
Interesting! I've never seen these before!Happy WW, Rosey!
I have no idea what they are. I'd love to see them up close and personal. I've heard about the name though :) And now I'm thinking of Noelle :)
And I laughed out loud!!
I have never seen them before but heard of them - still had no idea they were moth larvae :P that is sad!
I had some of them when I was a kid, too. You know... back in the Dark Ages. The worms made little holes in the beans and came out. No more jumping.
Oh dear. I didn't know that.Hey, thanks so much Rosey, for your sweet words while I was needing a break. I feel so much better now days. Some days are just like that, huh?
Yep, some days are like that, we all have 'em. :)
My family used to go to a Mexican restaurant called the Jumping Beanery which gave out those beans.
Oh no, yuck! :) Danica
I have of course heard of them but never seen any till now, look on the bright side you won't see any moths for a while :-)Have a beantastic week Rosey ;-)
Hehe, what a gift, it's the thought that counts!! Hope you're having a good week xxx
Well hopefully he had fun with them
Oh boy - I didn't even realize that Mexican jumping beans were a real thing.......
I remember these from when I was kid!! I totally forgot about them..thanks for trip down memory lane and the info about them (who knew?)!!
RoseyYeah, when I thought about the worm, I always thought the beans were rather creepy. Thanks for the shout-out from the whistling post. I don't get to as many blogs these days. As soon as I get up, I write my rhyme at Pat's but then I go outside for my garden work and most days I'm too tired to go on the computer when evening comes. I'm busy removing the small rocks that I put in all the gardens years ago. Snowballs will soon be flapp'n at our backs again and then we can all settle in for the winter. Happy Half Week.
Gah, I'd rather be outside too!! I say have at it. :) And now I'm off to visit Pat's too, even though he called me names with his reply up there. ;)
eeep...yeah....i could not remember what it was inside them, but i knew it was living....was...err.....
ha! way to rub it in :)
oh really? i have not heard of that. Hopping from WW.Sisters in good and bad times
Yes, you have to be very careful with these larvae!
Nice use of the keyboard punctuation features. :) And now I want to visit Mexico (it doesn't take much to get me wanting to travel, you know). ;)
Whaaaattt???!! That's craziness! Having never seen them, I now both want to avoid them completely and get some right away to check them out! Lol
I've not heard this before either. I've never had any though and now I certainly don't want any. Yikes.Have a terrific day. ☺
Oh my gosh! I never knew that either! Poor moths!
I had actually heard that before...from Miss Spider's Sunny Patch show on Nick Jr. :p Following from WW at Create With Joy.
What?? I had NO idea!
Oh my gosh, I would FREAK OUT!
I had some of these when I was younger. My mom had them wrapped for a couple days so it was driving me crazy to know what they were.
Really? Larvae? Now I feel so guilty for my own jumping beans years back.
Ewwww. I think I could have gone my whole life without knowing that. Thanks Rosey!
Think of how you'd feel if you gifted them to your 5-yr. old. ;)
I never knew those were moth larvae. I will never buy them again LOL
I knew it was some sort of insect in there. I think I had these as a kid, but never did buy them for the kids. How long before the moth larvae expire I wonder? I'll bet your son got a kick out of them! :)
I always wondered why the larva went in there if they couldn't get out? Lol.
I remember those from when I was a kid, I remember my bff had them too, haven't seen them since then.
What a great memory from my past!
I have never seen them before, so the beans actually jump around and they're from moths? So interesting!
Yuck...I don't know what else to write lol.
I guess I never knew what made them jump but I never thought of something being alive.
I remember having those as a kid. Never knew what made them jump though.
how cool... i never knew that was what they were.... i need to get broxton some... he would love it :)i have not seen them in ages....
I had jumping beans when I was a kid. I did not know that you are killing moths when they stop jumping. I liked them when I was a kid. It has been forever that I even remember these~
Mexican Jumping Beans are entertaining. I could watch them for hours.
