Willy Wonka chocolate bars to return to the UK

UK Zoners with a sweet tooth will soon be able to satisfy their chocolate craving with genuine Willy Wonka bars! Nestle Rowntree will once again produce Willy Wonka chocolate bars in the UK, reports Mark Sweney Marketing, so it can “cash in on” the July release of the Tim Burton film CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, in which Johnny Depp plays chocolatier Willy Wonka. Nestle will relaunch the brand with a five-million-pound promotional campaign and a golden ticket sweepstakes. Willy Wonka bars, which are featured in the movie, will be made in three different flavors: Whipple Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight, Nutty Crunch Surprise, and Triple Dazzle Caramel. There will also be other, pricier candy products in the Nestle line which resemble props from the film–for example, “a cane filled with sweets.” U.S. fans will watch for them on Ebay . . . .
