Very interesting and fun. Real Mexican jumping beans are difficult to find these days. I did find a website where you can buy Mexican jumping beans at www.amazingbeans.com  They are hilarious!

when I had to stay the night at the dallas/fort worth airport, i sa that they were sold there
:D I bought some of these in an airport!
OMG! Same!
cool!
I remember buying them from truck stops as a kid.
Ummmm. Mexican jumping beans are ALIVE. Tin foil and a marble is not. Lemme get my nerdy self in. Mexican jumping beans are dried out beans, with a worm or maggot inside, and they actually jump. Your ible is for something similar to Mighty Beanz. Overall, this ible saves money, and is great.just to get your facts straight!
foil is second only to DUCT TAPE!!!!
COOL!
Don't have any foil :(
Any alternatives?
nope :(
COOL
