100 Wicked Willy Wonka Wonders

From Edible Cheesy Billboards to Sci-Fi Chocolate Factories

— June 25, 2012 — Lifestyle
These Willy Wonka Wonders are inspired by the classic children's book character the eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka. First, appearing in British author Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Wonka has since inspired two major film project along with countless delectable treats.

The magical world crafted by Dahl was one that everyone has once fantasized being given a golden ticket to. All of these finds could have been taken straight from Dahl's imagination, being able to have a taste of a snozberry from lush lickable murals to being lost in a room made entirely from chocolate are now possibilities.

Though there may not be any jobs for oompa loompas in the sci-fi chocolate factories of today, I'm sure they would love knowing that there is now honest chocolate that is fair trade being made in the world.
