To Fargo we go

    As if it’s not cold enough in Pennsylvania, Bethlehem’s Just Born candy company will host its annual holiday party in Fargo, N.D. The company swears it’s not a punishment for low sales.

     

    The Associated Press reports the company told its employees last year the 2010 celebration would be in Hawaii — if the annual sales goal was met. Instead, the candy makers will be flying out to Fargo where the currenty temperature is a balmy 12 degrees.

    The 24-person sales staff will get a taste of Fargo culture instead of attending a pig roast.

    Sounds like someone thought the Fargo talk was an empty threat.
