Good things come in small packages. Just ask Ant-Man and the Wasp. Marvel Studios' latest big-screen adventure stormed the box office this summer, reeling in audiences and critical acclaim. And to celebrate that success, those fruit-loving folks at review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes paid, ahem, sizable tribute to the bug-sized super duo – by doling out the smallest version ever of their "Certified Fresh" trophy.

Rotten Tomatoes posted a photo of the miniature award on Twitter. And by the looks of it, the trophy barely reaches the shins of the two Ant-Man and Wasp action figures standing beside it and is less than the height of a Pez dispenser (just imagine if they win an Oscar!). RT also threw in a miniature tomato as well to complete the look.

And by critics accounts, Ant-Man and the Wasp was worthy of the accolade. The latest entry in the MCU earned a solid 87 percent fresh rating on the Tomatometer, a tad better than the 80 percent audience score moviegoers gave it. It also hit at the perfect time, providing some levity fresh off the heaviness of Infinity War just a few months prior.

So far, the Peyton Reed-helmed sequel, with Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily returning as the eponymous pair, has grossed $209 million domestically while raking in $257 million overseas for a total worldwide haul of $466 million.

Score one for the little guys!
