Daniel asks…

When is Willy Wonka going to send out more golden tickets for another tour in the factory?

i just recently saw a documentery on HBO of Willy Wonka and his Chocolate Factory. I just was wondering if he will ever open the doors to his factories because i was really interested in this type of business.
P.S. Does the glass elevator often leave the building because wouldnt he often have to fix the broken glass?
Or maybe the oompa-loompa’s fix it….oh and is owning the oompa-loompa’s considered slavery?
its a documentory you idiot not a real movie

His company went through massive budget cuts after all the legal backlash that ensued after his last tour. The lives of almost all of his guests were ruined by his unpatented and unsafe inventions.

I don’t expect there to be any more tours.
Even if there were, it’d just be a big kitchen with a bunch of stoves making sugar rock candy.
About all he can afford nowadays.

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 consists of small, graham cracker pieces dipped in milk chocolate, similar to the Crunch bar. 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).

The Willy Wonka Candy Company is a brand of candy owned by the Nestlé company using licensed materials from Roald Dahl’s Charlie & the Chocolate Factory for their packaging and marketing. The brand is used on a range of candies in North America and a range of chocolate bars in the United Kingdom. Nestlé also sells both candy and chocolate under the Willy Wonka brand in Canada, the Republic of Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Products include the Everlasting Gobstopper and the Wonka Bar, both named after candies in Dahl’s book.

Chris asks…

Wonka Chocolate: factory based on the book, or book based on the factory?

In essence, which came first? Book or the real-life factory?

Sources please.

Book came first. The book was written in 1964, and the candy company, owned by Nestle, was introduced in 1971.
