At 22 years old, Matt didn't consider himself creative or artsy, and he was certainly not a party planner. Yet his fraternity put him in charge of finding some kind of favors for a bachelor party for their brother John.
Party favors? Wasn't that a girlfriend thing?
Matt was nothing if not techy, so he googled "bachelor party favors" and up popped MyJellyBelly.com. He had to admit that designing customized containers online and uploading his own photos appealed to his inner geek, but what really sold him were the flavors of the Bean Boozled candy that he could give his brothers. What real man wouldn't want Moldy Cheese, Baby Wipes, or Skunk Spray? "They sound tempting, but I'm going with Rotten Egg and Canned Dog Food" (really Buttered Popcorn and Chocolate Pudding, but don't tell Matt).
"This isn't so bad," he thought to himself. "Now for something to put the candy in." He chose Premium Tins–and uploaded a picture of John (the worst one he could find, of course).
The only hard part was picking one photo out of so many choices, so Matt decided all the guys would give John a Barrel filled with a 20-flavor mix of Bean Boozled beans. On the lid he uploaded a photo of all the brothers from last year's senior party. The lid was big enough that you could easily see the beer barrel they were all gathered around.
"Planning a party isn't so bad," Matt thought to himself. "Too bad I wasted four years studying engineering."
