(KTVI) – A central Missouri candy shop is giving away free candy on Fat Tuesday, but some say it’s a sweet promotion that’s in poor taste.
The Route 66 Candy Shoppe in Waynesville is giving away free fudge, but only to customers weighing more than 300 pounds.
Since announcing the promotion on Facebook, some have said the gimmick is offensive. Shop owner Charley Dill says that wasn’t his intent.
He says this is just one of many promotions the store plans to offer to get people talking.
