Jelly Belly founder creates Willy Wonka-style treasure hunt to give away cash, candy factory

(CBS 58) -- The founder of Jelly Belly is pulling off a Willy Wonka-style treasure hunt. 

Ahead of his retirement, David Klein is launching a golden ticket contest where one lucky winner gets their very own candy factory. 

The gold tickets are in the form of necklaces, with a verification code on them. 

They are hidden in secret locations across the United States. 

Klein, who no longer owns Jelly Belly, says he is giving away a "Candyman Kitchens" in Florida to one grand prize winner. 

Other winners will get $5,000. 

It costs about $50 to receive the riddle to play. CLICK HERE for more.
