Jelly Belly Founder To Give Away One of His Candy Factories In Worldwide Treasure Hunt

Gold Tickets are being hidden worldwide for you to find. Have you heard of The Candyman? Not Willy Wonka, but a real-life Candyman. David Klein is the founder of The Jelly Belly jelly beans and now Tricky Treasures. David is getting ready to retire, but not before he has some fun and not before he gives back to everyone who loves the candy industry like he does. 

David and his partner have started going across the USA 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 these gold tickets in each state. You can join one of their treasure hunts which are launching right now at www.TheGoldTicket.com.

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 which will be the key to one of his candy factories and an all-expenses paid trip and education to a candy-making university. He will add this treasure hunt after all the states have had a chance to play. Each treasure hunt is valued at $5,000 and cost is only $49.99 to enter a hunt. Each treasure hunt has a strict limit of 1000 participants, 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.”

Thanks for the tip Meredith!

The Kool-Aid Man Has Vanished

The Kool-Aid Man has disappeared. It’s quite the feat, given the large stature and typically boisterous demeanor, but everything is quiet and all walls are structurally sound. Is he safe? Keeping cool? Hydrated? No one can say for sure.

His disappearance is tied to a campaign focused on a new mystery flavor. Kraft Heinz is encouraging concerned citizens to visit koolaidmystery.com and help locate the Kool-Aid Man, who’s ostensibly out traveling the world in search of that secret ingredient. “Find the Man to Find the Flavor!” the website proclaims.

Participants who join the search between now and April 3 will be eligible to win prizes, including a $10,000 vacation. Kool-Aid Mystery Jammers—ready-to-serve drink pouches that contain the unknown flavor—are on shelves nationwide for $1.99 per pack of 10 pouches. Kraft Heinz will reveal the secret flavor, along with Kool-Aid Man’s whereabouts, on April 6.

The global robotics community FIRST has teamed up with Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Force for Change to give fans and artists ages 16 and up the chance to design a droid that could be included in a future story set in the Star Wars galaxy. And as the competition kicks off this week in the lead up to the highly anticipated final chapter in the Skywalker saga — Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker — the winning designer will also be invited to the film’s world premiere in December to proudly watch the public debut of their droid design, as it’s revealed on the red carpet.

The panel of judges for the contest will include Star Wars creature and special make-up effects supervisor Neal Scanlan; Lucasfilm vice president, creative producer John Swartz; Lucasfilm senior creative executive Pablo Hidalgo; celebrity Star Wars fan and STEM advocate Mayim Bialik; and Dean Kamen, FIRST founder and inventor of the LUKE Arm — a revolutionary prosthesis inspired by Luke Skywalker.
