Win a Candy Factory!

David Klein is the founder of Jelly Belly jellybeans, and he’s getting ready to retire by giving away one of his candy factories Willy Wonka style.

Here’s how the contest works: He’s gone to all 50 states and hidden a special necklace in each state. For $50 at, you can get a ticket to a scavenger hunt for the necklace in your state. (If the link’s not working, it’s because the website has been having some connectivity issues.) If you find the necklace, you get $5,000 plus you’re entered in the grand prize drawing where one of the 50 winners will win the candy factory.

I have no idea if you have to continue to churn out jellybeans or not, but let’s hope not because jellybeans are trash. Let me further alienate you by taking this moment to admit I’ve never seen Willy Wonka and I’m not sure I ever read the book either.
