Jelly Belly Founder Is Hosting An Online Treasure Hunt and the Winner Gets a Candy Factory

The founder of Jelly Belly is hosting a series of cash prize treasure hunts around the country before his retirement. David Klein has started going across the country hiding gold-style tickets in the form of necklaces in places he comes across with an interesting story. The best part of these treasure hunts is that anyone who joins at least one treasure hunt will be eligible to search for "The Ultimate Treasure" — the key to one of his candy factories and an all-expenses-paid trip and free tuition to a candy-making university. Those who want to get involved just need to pay an entry fee of $49.99 to get access to their state’s clue. The company said that each treasure hunt is valued at $5,000, and only 1,000 people can participate in each treasure hunt.
