I am also using little glass jars for my favors.  I am going to fill them with green and blue jelly bellies.  No worries of them melting, they come in lots of fun colors, and i hate plain m&m’s.

Honey?  I’ve seen that done in a really cute way.  Or maybe tiny sugar cookies with the right color frosting/sugar?

Blueberry jam? Mmmm…delicious! Or, this might freak some people out, that green “slime” candy kids like so much? It also comes in blue…. Or mini pixie-stix in blue and green! Love those things! Or you could get those egg shaped chocolate candies they sell this time of year- some are like giant M&Ms but in bright spring colors and some are like colorful malted milk balls, and some are colorful gum!

what about hot coco mix in the jars or jam or even some kind of bath salt scrub?  you could fill them with little packets of seeds to plant in a garden, or a italian or mexican spice mix?

What about filling them with a cookie or brownie mix? That way you’re using dry ingredients and dont have to worry about any melting. There’s also the ever popular jordan almonds OR what about loose rock candy in blue & green. That could look cool!

Jordon almonds? Anything wrapped – like butterscotch. Butter mints.

Also, it’s candy! People will love it even if it doesn’t match your color scheme.

I wouldnt get caught up entirely in the “trying to please everyone” cause you will drive yourself INSANE. Believe me I know. If you love jelly beans and have already thought about using them I think you should go for it! It’s meaningful (u love them), cheap (!), and you can get them in virtually any color (especially now easter time is the perfect time to get pale blue & green colors). OH and also I can guarantee that the majority of your guests probably love jelly beans too, and if some ppl dont like them, others will snatch up the leftovers! Problem solved πŸ™‚

Even if I didn’t like the candy inside I would probably take the jar because it’s cute and give the candy to my Fiance or someone else.  I agree with MissCamera that you won’t be able to find a candy/food that everyone loves.

So, do what you love!

I was gonna say jam, but I see other bees beat me to it!

Someone bought me a book about cookie recipe ingredients in a jar; kind of interesting, but sounds like too much work to me.

Mini Gum balls?

If you’re worried about the strawberry jam clashing with  your colors, what about blueberry jam? Your mom might not have it in her garden, but you can always just go buy the blueberries, and then make it at home πŸ™‚ Then you could tie green ribbon around the jars.

Hm… maybe you could do hard candy?  You know the kind that comes in the clear wrappers, that would be fun in blue, or green, or both.  (sim to jolly ranchers, but generic from a candy store)

Jams is a great idea… Blueberry jam would be blue!  Just really dark blue.

I’m not a Jordan Almonds fan – so I do NOT propose those… hehe. 

Rock candy, as somone said above is a fab idea, plus it will sparkle – but if it’s too hot, it might become one giant hunk of candy…

You could do coffee beans, but that doesn’t really match your theme.

The make little lime slice jelly candies, those could be cute!

You could do a “scent” like lavendar, but something blue or green, or seeds.

Maybe spices?  That’s all I have for now.
