ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - It took 60 years, but a Minnesota man finally has his free candy bars.
Dave Bell, 74, of St. Cloud received a package of candy last week after sending an email reminding Pearson's Candy Co. in St. Paul of the complaint he made as a teenager.
In 1952, Bell was 14 when he bit into a nut roll and discovered a twig. He tells the St. Cloud Times he sent a letter to Pearson's "to obviously get some candy."
He got a letter of apology from the son of one of the company's founders. But no candy.
Last year Bell came across the letter, so he reminded the company about the candy. The candy arrived Friday.
Bell jokes he's not sharing the candy.
