In the 1970s the Jolly Green Giant made a new friend: Little Green Sprout. Since 1972 this little green guy has been the giant’s apprentice and right hand…well, little green guy!

This little green guy (well, littler that the giant statue) from the Green Giant brand hangs out at a gas station in Blue Earth, Minnesota, holding a (root) beer and a pizza. Why? Well, it’s actually a re-purposed A&W Root Beer statue!

Rumor has it that since Silly America was visited him last he’s moved to a different gas station (a Shell station close to the highway). And his beer has been painted to be a big cup of Jelly Beans and the pizza box is now a big piece of fudge!
