One of the co-inventors the Jelly Belly’s
famous jelly beans says he was inspired
by “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” .
when he came up with his sweepstakes
treasure hunt, in which the prize is a
candy factory and a candy-making class.
David Klein announced to candy lovers that
he will co-sign a candy factory to whoever
wins his treasure hunt, aptly titled The Gold Ticket.
Participants must pay $49.98
to enter the contest and only
1,000 tickets are being sold in every state.
After finding a ticket, each player will
receive a riddle which, once they solve,
will lead them to a “gold-colored dog tag”.
Whoever finds the dog tag will
win $5,000 and reach the next level
of the competition for the candy factory.
Details remain unclear in terms of
when players will receive their riddles
and where the golden dog tags will be.
Hopefully, things will become clearer closer to the
start date, but for now let’s just hope no spoiled kids
bought their tickets, because we all know how that ends
