St. Paul, MN — Pearson’s Candy Co. is giving 75 winners of its “Too Goodie To Be True” sweepstakes promotion tours of its St. Paul candy factory throughout the next two weeks.
The company reports: “Tour winners will have the red carpet rolled out for them as they enter the 'House of Pearson' — no Wonka-like somersaults promised. They will see Pearson's kitchen, where everything starts, and then follow the production line and sample new creations. These lucky VIPs will walk away with a 'goodie' bag of Pearson's premium candy and 100 pounds of Nut Goodie bars.”
Pearson’s hosted St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman to mark the opening day of tours and renovated the outside of its factory with gingerbread fun-house style aesthetics.
As an extension of its “Do Goodie” program, the company is auctioning off another factory tour through www.cities97.com, and all proceeds with go toward the Ronald McDonald House of the Upper Midwest. In addition, Pearson’s donated tours to raise money for BestPrep career center and the Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights.
