In “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,” Violet Beauregarde met her sad end when she chewed a piece of Wonka’s Three-Course-Dinner Gum. The most amazing, sensational piece of gum in the world included tomato soup, roast beef and a baked potato. But it was the dessert course that went all wrong. The blueberry pie made the poor Violet turn violet and  blow up just like a blueberry. Archie McPhee’s TV Dinner Gumballs promise that the same thing won’t happen to you. Instead of one meal, the gumballs are divided into courses — roast beef, buttered corn and apple cobbler. If only Wonka had thought of that, Violet would still be chomping away. The dream is still alive for all of us gum addicts, Violet. Only $3.50 for a week’s supply. I may be switching to gum for dinner. [Laughing Squid]

Willy Wonka Fantasy Gum About To Be A Reality!

Since I was a kid obsessed with “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” I’ve been fantasizing about Ever-Lasting Gobstoppers, Lickable Wallpaper, Wonkavision, and Three-Course-Dinner Gum. The Three-Course-Dinner Gum would have been the world’s most perfect invention in Wonka’s factory had it not turned Violet Beauregarde into a blueberry prompting her dad to scream, “Violet you’re turning violet, Violet!” Amazing news! This fantasy gum may actually become a reality thanks to the new technology that can capture time-release flavors in microscopic capsules. Keep reading »

What Ever Happened To The Kids From “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”?

Oompah-Loompa, Doompity Doo. I’ve got an exciting update for you! If you weren’t obsessed with “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”—the 1971 version, not the Tim Burton remake—when you were a kid, then you probably weren’t born yet or maybe you lived in a remote cave. Weird kids, candy galore, a magical factory with little singing orange men? What’s not to like? I drove my parents crazy, watching the VHS tape no less than four times a week, learning all of the songs. I still do a great rendition of Veruca Salt’s “I Want the World” British accent and all. I begged my parents for lick-able wallpaper (anyone know what a “snosberry” is?), and tried to chew as much gum as Violet Beauregarde—I hid Hubba Bubba under my bed so I could pop a piece in before bed. I’m not ashamed to admit that I still watch the movie about once a year just to stay young at heart. I’m waiting for the film to lose its appeal, but so far, it hasn’t. I mean … there’s a chocolate freaking river! That’s why I was so psyched to see that Celebuzz tracked down the kids from the film. Aren’t you just dying to know where their Golden Tickets led them?
