GET WISE: The Wonka Bar

The Wonka Bar is both a fictional candy bar, introduced in the 1964 novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, and a type of real life candy bar inspired by the fictional confection. Wonka Bars appear in both film adaptations of the novel, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), each with different packaging. Varieties of Wonka Bars were subsequently manufactured and sold in the real world, currently by the Willy Wonka Candy Company, a division of Nestlé.[1]

[edit] The literary Wonka Bar

In Roald Dahl‘s novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and its film adaptations, a Wonka Bar is a brand of chocolate made by Willy Wonka, and is said to be the “perfect candy bar“. The wrappers of the 1971 version are brown with an orange and pink border with a top hat over the “W” in Wonka, similar to the film’s logo. In the 2005 version, the wrappers feature different shades of a color (depending on the type of candy bar) and are also more detailed.

In the 2005 film, four Wonka Bar flavors are depicted:

Flavor Wrapper color Available in the US? Available internationally?
Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight Brown Red XN Green tickY
Nutty Crunch Surprise Red Red XN Green tickY
Chilly Chocolate Creme Blue Red XN Green tickY
Triple Dazzle Caramel Orange Red XN Green tickY

Also in the book, Grandpa Joe mentions that Mr. Wonka had invented over two hundred kinds of Wonka bars. The Wonka Bars might not be ever relaunched in international countries, specifically the UK.

[edit] The real Wonka Bar

In real life, Wonka Bars are chocolate candy bars inspired by the novel and the films Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The Quaker Oats Company originally wanted to create a bar in time to publicize the 1971 film, but failed to do so.[1] In the documentary “Pure Imagination”, producer David L. Wolper claims the bar was actually released to stores, but recalled due to a production problem. Quaker Oats financed the 1971 film[1] with US$3 million.

[edit] Nestlé Wonka Bars

Made by Nestlé and sold under their Willy Wonka Candy Company brand, Wonka Bars sold in the United States until 2010 consisted of small, graham cracker pieces dipped in milk chocolate. The brand was launched by Chicago‘s Breaker Confections in 1976, and purchased by Nestle in 1988.[1]

To promote the 2005 film adaptation, some real Wonka Bars were packaged with a Golden Ticket, as in the novel and films. A Golden Ticket entitled winners to cash prizes or Nestlé factory tours, depending on the country.

A Nestlé factory in Europe began producing real Wonka Bars (as in the flavors and wrappers depicted in the films). Although the real-Wonka campaign was short, it produced an income of roughly 137,000 euros (58,000 candy bars).

In March 2010, Nestlé USA introduced a new line of chocolate bars named “Wonka Exceptionals,” consisting of three varieties. The Wonka Scrumdiddlyumptious Chocolate Bar consists of bits of toffee, cookie and peanuts in milk chocolate. The Wonka Chocolate Waterfall Bar contains white chocolate swirled with milk chocolate, and the Wonka Domed Dark Chocolate Bar is made of dark chocolate topped with milk chocolate medallions.[2] Wonka launched the product line with an in-package Golden Ticket sweepstakes. Ten Golden Tickets could be found in bars and bags of Wonka Exceptionals chocolates, and each ticket was worth a grand prize of a trip around the world.[3]
