Well, I think a Jelly Belly is about .5 inch wide, and about .25 inches tall, but they aren’t square. Figuring there will be spaces between each bean, and you don’t want to squash them in, I would guess about 30ish Jelly Bellys per jar, depending on the size/width of each bean.

Hope this helps!

What I would do is pick up a bag of jelly beans at the store and then use aluminum foil to make a container of the same dimensions that way you could get a better idea of how many will fit.

You buy candy by weight anyway not by piece. So knowing EXACTLY how many jelly beans fit in a tin wont really help you. It may be a bit tedious to count out 30 jelly beans to stick in each tin only to find out you are short 5 jelly beans. I’d say just eyeball it. Put a small handfull of jellybeans in each tin and be done with it. How many favors do you need to make?

Also be careful making them too early because they may end up getting stale or sticky by the time you get to hand them out.
