PEZ Cancels Annual Easter Egg Hunt After Adults Misbehave
Every generation has a percentage of people who never developed a moral code, or who never developed a sense of community and decency, and some who never matured. Is is just me, or do these percentages seem to go up every every decade?
“Parents took from small children.”
PEZ Candy abruptly canceled their annual Easter egg hunt Saturday morning after parents disobeyed the rules and turned the child-focused tradition “into a mess,” the company said in a statement.
“We sincerely tried our best to create a fun, free activity for everyone to enjoy. Due to the actions of a few, the good intent quickly turned into a mess.” PEZ wrote in response to a critical comment on its Facebook page. “We only wanted to do good for the local community.”
PEZ said it had over 9,000 eggs on three separate fields, each of which was designated for a particular age group with start times 15 minutes apart, but parents rushed onto the fields before the posted start times.
“Somebody pushed me over and take my eggs and it’s very rude of them and they broke my bucket,” 4-year-old Vincent Welch told NBC Connecticut.
