It’s a Willy Wonka sized giveaway, and the prize is just as sweet. Golden tickets are being hidden worldwide by David Klein, the founder of Jelly Belly and Tricky Treasures, in a nationwide treasure hunt.
Getting ready to retire, Klein wants to have some fun, which in turn is about to set the world on fire as they scramble for the chance to grab a golden ticket.
Klein and his partner will travel across the country, hiding gold-style tickets in the form of necklaces in places they come across with an interesting story. Plans are to have multiple treasure hunts for the golden tickets in each state.
The biggest and 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; a key to one of Klein’s candy factories and an all-expenses-paid trip and education covered to a candy-making university. Each treasure hunt is valued at $5,000, and the cost is only $49.99 to enter a search. Each treasure hunt has a strict limit of 1,000 participants, with no exceptions.
“With The Gold Ticket Treasure hunt, our goal is to get people out and about with their families. Grandma and Grandpa can even join with the kids and grandkids,” said David Klein, “The Candyman.” “Take videos of your treasure hunt experiences for possible inclusion in our upcoming series.”
