Straight out of the movies, the owner of Jelly Belly is retiring and needs a CEO to take over his company. So, if you find the golden ticket the company is yours, but it's not going to be easy.

Just like the movie Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory, if you find the golden ticket you win. The founder of Jelly Belly, David Klein, made the announcement in an online video, of a contest he is doing handing over the keys to his beloved Jelly Belly company, and to put the icing on the cake, he's throwing in thousands of dollars in prizes.

If you recall in the movie, kids had to buy a Willy Wonka Chocolate Bar with the golden ticket inside a select few bars, seems easy, but Klein is not making it that easy to win his company. It will cost you $50 if you want to receive the Illinois clue which will then help you figure out where the winning golden ticket (which will be in the form of a necklace) is hidden. 

Jelly Belly candies are my favorite candy so I hope that the new owner(s) keep with tradition and produces the same variety and maybe even coming up with a few new flavors. Below is the video posted online explain the contest. Good luck!
