You could if you wanted to. The poison control center lists them as harmless so they will not make you ill.

But what makes the jumping beans jump is a small worm inside the bean itself that is trying to get out. So you would be eating a worm if you did eat it.

I can't eat a Mexican Jumping Bean because I would regurgitate just before I would try to because of the thought of eating the worm that is inside the bean.   Seesee.
