Who wants the last bag of candy for $21,000? Answered

That is right, on ebay, you can bid Woolworths last bag of pic n mix candy for £360!!!

Personally, I think the people that is bidding the last bag of candy for that kind of price is CRAZY!


UPDATE

The auction is over!
And the winner got it for an hefty £14,500 ($21,000)!!!!

That must be the most expensive bag of sweets ever sold...?

1c error isn't bad, especially with a difference in fours days in this financial climate.

One dollar and 4,366 cents? That doesn't make any sense.

You can use Google to convert currency. Just type in "100GBP in USD", for example, to find out how many US dollars is equal to 100 British pounds.

Or you can just pay attention to the "markets" section of a decent news bulletin.

You're AMerican, you wouldn't understand (seriously)

Branches of Woolworths have been on almost every single British high street for 99 years. Everybody shopped there at some point, for something. Then it closed, very suddenly, the first high-profile victim of the credit-crunch in the UK.

Pick'n'mix was the characteristic sweet sold by Woolies - no other shop did it quite the way they did.

(But, 2 million? That's got to be a wind-up by some very sick individual)

Good question.... Maybe get a small paper bag and buy various sweets and mix them all up together in the paper bag and enjoy... That is my best answer...

If it really is the last bag, then it's a huge piece of British history.

Woolworths shaped the high-street and our shopping habits for almost a century.
