An online site for a Willy Wonka-like competition from the founder of Jelly Belly was overwhelmed by people trying to buy a $50 golden ticket shortly after it was announced.
David Klein, the original developer of The Jelly Belly brand who's sometimes referred to as "The Candyman," launched a nationwide treasure hunt before he officially retires from the business - with a candy factory as the grand prize.
The contest site, which was crashing due to high traffic, was functioning again on Wednesday.
