THanks everyone....we have Mike and Ikes and zours everywhere. Now that I know what the jelly beans look like I will be on the lookout. If anyone sees them in any of the stores mentioned above or Eckerds or Walgreens...please let me know!!

If you live near Boston and want to buy Teenie Beanie jelly beans from Just Born...I found some in the convenience store behind the Charles River Park apartments at the end of Storrow Drive. (the signs say "If you lived here, you'd be home now")It is also across from Massachusetts General Hospital. The back of the store is on Blossom St. near the Holiday Inn. I have never given these to my kids, but have given them the Peeps marshmallow treats. I bought a pack but now not sure I want to give them. They haven't had them yet, so do not expect to and if they never eat them they won't run a chance of getting confused with other brands...I feel a bit hippocritical about this. They are great about understanding they can only have certain chocolate and certain lollipops...

Aren't Starburst jelly beans okay too? I thought I also saw where smuckers ones are, but cannot recall. My dd is only 3 years old, and it has worked that mommy and daddy check everthing. However, I understand your fears. Just this week, my friend showed her a box of crackers and asked if she ever had them. My dd told her yes, she had(she loves any cracker she has ever had and was likely looking forward to having crackers, since she hates about everything else). Luckily, my friend knows to check the label, and even with me, and saw a "manufactured on" type statement. She mentioned it to me so I would know my dd was saying she had something she likely had not!
Now I worry more about her confusing things. Just need to be real clear with folks not to give her anything but her own snack or what we say is exactly okay, since she does not yet totally understand. I understand your worries. I grapple with it over soy butter, but do use it at home with er. Hard to decide which way to go. becca

I know I bought "Just Born" jelly beans when we lived in Texas (Houston)...pretty sure that they weren't called "Teeny Beanie" (they weren't "gourmet"), though I know those are theirs, too. I think it was a big white bag? Anyway, it was most likely at either Krogers, Albertson's, Randall's, Walgreens or Wal-Mart. Possibly Target? (Is that helpful at all?? sheesh! Sorry!

You are right! I forgot seeing a new(to me, I mean) bag of Just Born jelly beans on Thurs. It was a small store in my area, there are only 2 or 3 locations at all. They were all marshmallow flavors, like strawberry marshmallow etc., orange marshmallow, etc... I had never seen these bofore and it was a more ordinary "lay down" style bag.
I am spending more time in the candy isles these days, just staring and reading anything new I see or things I dream of buying! Hardly ever buy any of it. Must look like a wierdo! becca

Hi all, I posted this on another thread but thought I would post it here on where to find Teenie Beenies. I called Just Born, Inc. yesterday and they told me in the Ohio/Cincinnati area that Rite Aid Drug Store was the only one to carry them. She also gave me a website in which to order them from [url="http://www.candydiscounters.com"]www.candydiscounters.com[/url] will ship but they only ship a case (I think)it looked as if it cost about 37 dollars or so. Hope that helps! THANKS

My dd eats Starburst jelly beans all the time! They are suppose to be made in a nut free facility! They are very good.

Like kcmom, we use Starburst jelly beans too.
If you want to find JustBorn candy, phone them and ask them who their distributors are in Texas. They can connect you with a regional rep who can assist you in finding stores which stock their products. I did this about two or three years ago and they even sent me a gift box with a lot of JustBorn goodies.
They're a wonderful company to deal with.

I found Teenie Beanies!!! I'd called Just Born earlier this week, and determined that TB's were (supposed to be) available only on the East coast.
Well...they can also be found at Long's Drugs here in Reno! I bought a bag of "regular" flavors, and one of the more "adult" (blueberry cheesecake, that sort of thing) flavors. I've never been a huge fan of traditional jelly beans, but these sound like fun.
If anyone is really wishing for these, let me know, and we'll figure something out.
[I will mention that the jelly beans were displayed next to some sort of chocolate PB candies (which were both wrapped and then packaged in a plastic bags). If you picture a letter "H", the PB stuff was on one of the side rails, facing out, and the jelly beans were displayed on the crossbar. I just took Teenie Beanie bags from the furthest side of the display. We are *very* conservative when it comes to "comfort zone" issues, and I didn't feel there was much of a risk.
Others might feel there was no risk whatsoever, and wonder why I'm typing all this... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
Just thought I would include it as an FYI!]

Has it been determined that smuckers and starburst (jelly beans ) are safe??
