A Wonka Bar is a fictional chocolate bar first introduced in the 1964 novel Charlie and The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. The candy bar has been shown in both 1971 and 2005 film adaptations, each with different packaging.

An actual candy bar called a Wonka Bar is made by the Willy Wonka Candy Company, a division of Nestlé. The Quaker Oats Company originally wanted to create a bar in time to publicize the 1971 film, but failed to do so. 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 with US$3 million.

The literary Wonka Bar

In Roald Dahl's novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and its film adaptations, a Wonka Bar is a brand of chocolate made by Willy Wonka, and is said to be the "perfect candy bar". The wrappers of the 1971 version are brown with an orange and pink border with a top hat over the "W" in Wonka, similar to the film's logo. In the 2005 version, the wrappers feature different shades of a color (depending on the type of candy bar) and are also more detailed.

In the 2005 version, four Wonka Bar flavors are depicted:
Flavor Wrapper color Available in the USmarker? Available internationally?
Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight Brown
Nutty Crunch Surprise Red
Chilly Chocolate Creme Blue
Triple Dazzle Caramel Orange


Also in the book, Grandpa Joe mentions that Mr. Wonka had invented over two hundred kinds of Wonka bars. The Wonka Bars might not be ever relaunched in international countries, specifically the UK.

The Nestlé Wonka Bar

In real life, Wonka Bars are chocolate candy bars inspired by the novel and the films Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Made by Nestlé and sold under their Willy Wonka Candy Company brand, Wonka Bars sold in the United Statesmarker consists of small, graham cracker pieces dipped in milk chocolate, similar to the Crunch bar. The brand was launched by Chicagomarker's Breaker Confections in 1976, and purchased by Nestle in 1988.

To promote the 2005 film adaptation, some real Wonka Bars had 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).
