This was my first Yelp Elite event I've attended, and it was a lot of fun. I went by myself, and the experience was pretty smooth. There wasnt a guide present to speak to the crowd, but the tour is self guided and you get a brochure that explains the creation process.
Anyone can get a FREE tour of the factory, but only a certain time and season you can witness the chili grinding.
You've probably heard of Amazon "banning" their users for excessive returns, but i have a different experience. You can get banned from all community and public activity on amazon permanently regardless of status if you follow these steps.
All jokes aside, you actually get really awesome perks, but also get the hassle of starting over.
