Destination: Pure Imagination


You don’t need a golden ticket to visit this candy land: WONKA has opened on Times Square.

No trick. All treats. In fact, now’s the time to go if you haven’t nabbed your Halloween stockpiles yet. You’ll find old-school favorites like Everlasting Gobstoppers, Pixy Sticks and, of course, Wonka Bars, alongside new, scrum-diddly-umptious inventions from the chocolate factory.

Highlights include a 4-foot tall Wonka hat filled with sugary classics, larger-than-life candy mushrooms and a 21-foot candy tree surrounded by Laffy Taffy flowers.

And what about the three-course meal gum? Oompa Loompas rejoice! Scientists are cracking the code for gum that changes flavor as you chew it. In fact, WONKA is testing a flavor based on the classic gum from the movie and book that replicates tomato soup followed roast beef followed by blueberry pie.

The best part? No nasty side effects like excessive bloating or blue skin. Willy would be proud.
