YouTube star MrBeast has sent fans a warning after he accidentally gave away too many of his Feastables candy bars, crashing his website in the process.
Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson struggles to send his fans their candy bars after accidentally giving away too many.
On April 15, the YouTube star revealed he was orchestrating a flash sale for his new line of Feastables candy bars, possibly in an attempt to send out a “golden ticket” — a grand prize that would give one lucky shopper a chance at one Tour would give MrBeasts Own Chocolate Factory.
However, the sale wasn’t your usual BOGO or 50% off. Instead, Donaldson literally gave away candy bars for a period of just ten minutes.

Unfortunately, the flash sale was a bit too successful as fans literally smashed the site.
A few days later, MrBeast sent shoppers a bulk email telling them that they might see some delays and changes to their chocolate order due to the whole candy-covered debacle.

That’s not all; Donaldson also revealed that his team had successfully given away a whopping sum 1 million candy bars as a result of the flash sale.
“Don’t worry, everyone will have an order shipped in the next few days, but items may vary or you may receive fewer than the 100 boxes you may have ordered,” the email reads.
The message further reassured fans that they may have received a cancellation email in error and reiterated that everyone will continue to receive a chocolate order.
On the official website, it appears almost every item is sold out, with both individual bars and variety packs marked with a “Notify me when available” notice.
It’s unclear how much money MrBeast lost in this endeavor, but it was certainly a memorable moment in internet history.
We’ll just have to wait and see if any of the fans who took advantage of the flash sale ended up getting one of the three remaining golden tickets.
