Roald Dahl’s literary work has shaped childhoods for generations. These days, it’s hard to imagine a world without the whimsical tale that we’ve all come to know and love. Published back in 1964, the book captured the attention of both adults and children. The idea of taking a fantasy trip through a candy factory was too exciting to ignore. Since the book’s release, there have been a couple of ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' films, most notably Tim Burton’s 2005 musical version. What’s more, we can now get cool Wonka Candy to eat the treats mentioned in the book.

Fun Fact: It’s hard to think of the famous film without recalling Willy Wonka. Believe it or not, the character doesn’t show up until 43 minutes into the classic movie. In the first film version of ‘Charlie and The Chocolate Factory’, the scenes that stick in your head, such as the chocolate river and sorting room, happen late on. It’s remarkable to think that these parts of the movie made such a huge impression that we forget about the rest of it!
