History of Runts Candy
Fruity, crunchy, and fun to eat, Runts candy was first created in 1982. Though it’s hardly changed in the nearly 40 since its creation, the major changes have been to its flavors. Originally, the Willy Wonka Candy Company offered banana, cherry, strawberry, lime, and orange flavors. Over the decades and through transitions to different manufacturing companies, the offering has had several additions and removals of flavors, including lime, pineapple, mango, and raspberry. The original center of the treat was also colored to match the outside shell, but the sweets makers have since opted to change it to a white center.
