Employees of the Just Born candy company - which makes Peeps, Mike and Ikes and other popular candies - are enjoying chilly Fargo, N.D., instead of balmy Hawaii after corporate sales goals weren't met. Two dozen workers, who are in town for meetings, received fleece jackets and bomber hats. Pictured (from left) in front of the Fargo Theatre on Tuesday, Dec. 14, 2010, are: Dave Bayha, channel team manager, Josh Halpern, director of U.S. sales, and Jim Costas, channel team manager.
