Wonka Candy Review and Giveaway

Everyone's familiar with Wonka candy. It was made famous by the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie. Peeking into the factory made everyone's sweet tooth come out in full force!

Wonka creates more than just the legendary chocolate, they are the makers of some of your favorites as: Spree, Bottlecaps, Gobstoppers, Pixy Sticks, Nerds, SweeTarts, and more!

This delicious company has come out with a new line of chocolates called "Wonka Exceptionals." These candy bars are sure to please and satisfy that sweet tooth of yours.

I was sent 7 Wonka bars for review. I received 3 Chocolate Waterfall bars, 2 Scrumdiddlyumptious bars, and 2 Domed Dark Chocolate bars. I also received a ton of individually wrapped mint candies. WOW, is this what chocolate heaven is like?





Wow, look at the this insane amount of chocolate! I had a bite of everything for review purposes. Firstly, I tried the Chocolate Waterfall bar. This candy consists of; a delectable combination of swirled milk and white chocolate. It was incredibly smooth and the flavors of the white and milk chocolate mixed together were very unique and created a delicious taste. It was rich and creamy amd melt in your mouth good. It reminded me of a truffle.

Secondly, I had a bite of the Scrumdiddlyumptious bar. This is a milk chocolate bar with scrumptious toffee, crispy cookie, and crunchy peanuts mixed throughout. This was my absolute favorite bar. I like my chocolate to have a crunch to it, or at least caramel in it. This bar was amazing. I loved the crunch of the peanuts mixed with the crispy, fresh cookie bits in it. The toffee gave it that firm chewiness that is essential in candy. The milk chocolate again was rich and creamy. All of these ingredients made the bar irresistibly delicious. It was like no other candy I've tasted before. It will be hard to control myself from eating it!

Next, I sampled the Domed Dark Chocolate bar. I am a big fan of dark chocolate, so this was right up my alley. This candy is a bed of dark chocolate with milk chocolate pillows, and velvet dark chocolate with milk chocolate medallions in the center. Mmmm, this was so delicious. The mixture of the dark and milk chocolates were very interesting. Normally I don't like to mix dark and milk together, but they paired so well in this candy bar. It was like biting into a little piece of heaven. Yum!

Lastly, I tasted an individually wrapped mint candy. I LOVE mint, so I knew I would love this. It had something crunchy in the middle, possibly toffee bits? I popped the whole thing in my mouth and gobbled it down instantly. It was perfection. The mint combined with the toffee practically made my whole life. Crunchy chocolate with mint, how can you go wrong?

It will be very hard to stop myself from eating more than the allotted amount per day. We'll see how I do ;)
