The Awesomest Jelly Bean Dispenser Ever

My grandfather LOVED jellybeans! Like..LOVED them. He actually loved the black jellybeans the most, which as a child (and even as an adult) I could not understand. My favorites were, of course, the pink and purple ones. Now I like the orange ones. I think that jelly beans, in a blind taste test, actually all taste the same except for the black ones. Maybe a very refined pallet would be able to pick up the subtle differences between the orange and pink flavored dyes, but most of us would just chomp them down unknowingly.

With Easter nearing, jelly beans become a highlight again for many children. There is something about containers that make certain DIY people swoon, and the container is made all the better if there is also the chance that is has a function great than just holding something. Sure, you could put your jellybeans into a box or container...but what about if your box or container was made so that it could actually dispense the jellybeans to you at your requirement!? Would that not be the coolest project ever? Well, the author at the Instructables websites has found a way to spend an hour or so of your next sunny afternoon building this little fun project to dispense your candies. The project is quick, easy and very gratifying. It requires a few basic hand tools, some wood and a container for the jellybeans. I like the glass canning jar variety, but I supposed you could also opt for plastic if you prefer. When I look more at this project, it could be used for all sorts of goodies like mints, hersheys kisses and so on!
