Minnesota's Largest Candy Store sure knows how to get people talking on social media. In 2015, their store sign posted a message that read, “Join the movement #CaramelApplesMatter.”
The sign put people into a fit of rage. Many accused the candy store of being racist and mocking the Black Lives Matter movement.
Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store, located near Jordan on Highway 169, put up a sign that read, “Join the Movement.” Below it read, “#caramelapplesmatter.”
The store took heat on its Facebook page with some people accusing them of being distasteful and racist.
But workers say that was never their intent, and they never meant to offend anyone.
“If any offense was taken, and clearly there was, you know, we want to get beyond that and we apologize for it,” owner Robert Wagner said. “I could stand here and make all kinds of excuses, but at the end of the day it was a mistake.”
Wagner says the sign was up for about 40 hours, and was then removed.
Now they are back at it. Now they are trolling the global warming activists with their latest sign.
With winter pushing into April, the snow-covered sign read, "In Only Two Years Trump Fixed Global Warming.”
It probably comes as no surprise that there was a mixed reaction on Facebook to the sign. One user threatened to stop coming to their store.
“PLEASE KEEP POLITICS OUT OF YOUR POSTS!!! I would hate to have to stop coming to your store!!”
Another comment summed up how ridiculous it is to protest their sign.
“Now I just want candy, the only thing that upsets me about this post is now I am going to have to find out where this place is and go there and eat their candy. The only reason I am upset is because I have never heard of this place, which means it’s going to be a long road trip for some candy … All you people whining made it happen, I will shop here to spite you…..”
Minessota's Largest Candy Store was delighted by the reactions to their sign.
“The only thing funnier than this sign is all these comments and memes! Lol!”
