Jelly Belly founder is hiding "gold tickets" and pulling a full Willy Wonka by giving away one of his factories during a nationwide treasure hunt.https://t.co/p9lQJ8oAYt— ABC7 Eyewitness News (@ABC7) September 7, 2020
David Klein, founder of Jelly Belly, a producer of jellybeans, has announced a golden ticket treasure hunt where the prize will be a candy factory. It's very much straight out of Willy Wonka, but there are several catches. He has no relationship to the current CEO of Jelly Belly.
-Limited to the United States
-It's not a free contest. Participants pay $50 to get your state's riddle in order to find the ticket
-A limit of 1,000 participants per treasure hunt
-Golden Ticket finders will also win $5,000 for finding a Gold Ticket "in the form of a necklace with a tag that includes a code you need to verify your find"
-Grand prize is "receiving a key to one of our candy factories" which is one of Klein's Candyman Kitchens
