Mexican Jumping Beans
In a time when the internet wasn’t around to pour more fuel on the trend fire (the 1970s), somehow the Mexican Jumping Bean became a popular trend across America, providing seconds of fun for children and adults of all ages. However, most people don’t know that a tiny moth larva lives inside the bean, making it move. People essentially paid money to watch as a moth larva struggled for survival, and it became really popular. It even made a comeback in 1994 which is kinda of sad.
