Willy Wonka plays out IRL, only the winner doesn’t want the factory

Imagine if Willy Wonka put out those golden tickets, but when all is said and done and someone was being chosen to take over the chocolate factory, what if nobody wanted it? That is EXACTLY what happened here! David Klein, founder of the Jelly Belly Candy Company, hid necklaces in all 50 states and gave out $5,000 prizes to those who found them after solving clues. On Memorial Day weekend, they gave the clues for the grand prize, a candy factory, but the winner didn't want it. Andrew Maas, a 39-year-old father of two from Colorado, cracked the code, but taking the factory meant moving to Florida and he didn't want to do that (smart move), so he and David settled on a different idea. David bought the factory back from Andrew for an "undisclosed amount of money", which the winner seemed to be pretty happy with. Maybe next time Willy! More here
