Stephen: Alberta woman stuck with 130k Rum & Butter bars forced to give them away
Written by Stephen Lethbridge on April 18, 2023
A Canadian vintage candy company owner must give away 130,000 Rum & Butter bars before they expire in June. Founder of Canadian Candy Nostalgia Crystal Regehr Westergard ordered the bars from overseas, but due to the pandemic, she received all the orders in bulk instead of a bit at a time.
People are buying the bars, but not at a fast enough pace. To try to get rid of the candy before it expires, Westergard has given chocolates away to schools, local homeless shelters, and a professional hockey team.
After posting on Facebook, her inbox is now full. Westergard plans to continue giving away chocolate to support charities.
