Fruit of the Season (also my 1,000th post on this blog)

Jelly beans are such a happy fruit.
What? You say they are mere candy, not real food?
Why, I beg to differ, sir.
Their nutrition strain is pure:
Refined sugar granulated,
Artificial color sated,
And at this time of the year, so fresh and good.

You can pick them fresh right off the shelf;
In any store, you reach right out and help yourself.
Like the grapes right off the vine,
Clustered tight with their own kind,
Plump and juicy, sweet and tasty;
To discard them don’t be hasty;
Munching them in times of stress aids mental health.

    1. The best ones I’ve had in a long time are at the Dollar Tree. Really fruity flavor — except the pink ones. I finished off one bag, but threw away most of the pink ones. The next time I picked a bag that didn’t have very many pink. The rest of them are great.

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
