Wonka Squishy Sploshberries Gummies

Wonka’s Squishy Sploshberries Gummies are yet another new addition to Wonka’s Edible Garden of gummies. These, too, were in my free 16 lb bag of Sweets and Snacks Expo preview goodies, courtesy of the NCA. I thought they were just berry-flavored gummies with foamy bottoms, until I tried one and discovered that they were berry-flavored…

Wonka Exceptionals Scrumdiddlyumptious Chocolate Bar

I have to admit, I had a beef with this bar even before I tasted it. Its name is too darn long – it’s annoying to type out “scrumdiddlyumptious!” So I’m shortening it to WESCB, for Wonka Exceptionals Scrumbdiddlyumptious Chocolate Bar. Wonka Exceptionals is Nestle/Wonka’s new line of higher quality – and higher priced –…

Wonka Whipped Wingers Gummies

Nestle’s been doing a great job of breathing new life into their Wonka lineup. While I haven’t loved everything that they’ve rolled out, I do love the creativity and imagination that’s gone into their new products. I’m devoting this week’s reviews to the bunch of new Wonka products that I got in my NCA goody…

Wonka Sluggles Gummies

I think Nestle deserves a prize for making a candy with a name that’s so much fun to say: Sluggles. Sluggles sluggles sluggles sluggles. And so friendly sounding! I wonder if that’s why the Snuggie caught on more than the Slanket, because the former was way more fun to say than the latter? Tangent aside,…

SweeTarts Hearts Gummis

When I was a kid, SweeTarts were my favorite non-chocolate candy. I loved them in the big coin-sized rolls; in the smaller, Smartie-like rolls; and, of course, in the little paper sleeves of 3 SweeTarts each that are still ubiquitous players in Halloween and Kiddie mixes. It somehow totally escaped my notice that my favorite…

Wonka Sour Puckerooms Gummies

I bought a bag of Wonka Sour Puckerooms Gummies on sale for just a dollar (along with a $1 bag of their new Sluggles Gummies, which shall be reviewed in the future). I hope the Puckerooms’ on-sale-ness doesn’t mean that they’re on the way out! I found them adorable, creative, and most importantly, tasty! I…

Nerds Song Contest

From the folks at Nestle and Wonka, a Loss for Lyrics contest: Wonka’s new candy, Giant Chewy Nerds, has the Oompa Loompas so excited they are at a complete loss for words! Willy Wonka has launched a nationwide contest in the search for a new song to describe Giant Chewy Nerds. The Oompa Loompas and…
