During the past few months I have been limiting the number of cigarettes that I smoke each day. To help in resisting nicotine urges, I have been chewing gum and eating hard candies. While shopping at a local Walgreens Pharmacy a few nights ago, I noticed a display of Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper Candy and decided, on a whim, to purchase a package of the candies.
Wonka candies are inspired by the beloved children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the company is now owned by Nestle’. Presented here, in an effort to assist the consumer, is one food writer’s product review of Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper Candy.
The net weight of the package of Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper Candy being reviewed here is six ounces. This is a pretty big box and it could qualify as a movie – size box. According to the package label, the container holds approximately 11 nine – piece servings of candy. So far, I have eaten these candies twice and each time four or five of them were enough to satisfy my appetite and / or sweet cravings.
The regular retail price charged for one six ounce package of Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper Candy at Hartford, Connecticut area pharmacies, supermarkets and convenience stores is approximately $1.49. Considering the large number of servings and overall high quality of the item, I thiink that this price is reasonable.
The texture of Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper Candy can best be described in one word : hard. After all, these candies are described on the container as jawbreakers, a name that causes me to worry about my dental work, in relation to eating them. These candies are meant to be sucked on, until they dissolve, definitely not bitten into, in my estimation. I have noticed that the flavor of these candies lasts for quite a while and they take a long time to dissolve.
Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper Candy contains 60 calories, per nine piece serving. These candies also contain 0 grams total fat, 0 mg of sodium, 14 grams total carbohydrates, 0 grams of protein and 14 grams of sugars, per nine piece serving.
Taste / Flavor
Several different flavors of candy are offered in each package of Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper Candy. I am not sure of the exact flavors, but they are all brightly – colored and fun to eat. For the past three months, I have been trying to limit my cigarette smoking to 1/4 pack per day and have found that eating a couple of these candies helps to quell nicotine urges. I particularly like the way these candies last so long, I just wish that they were sugar free.
The package label of Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper Candy states that the candies change colors and flavors, which appears to be true. Both times that I have eaten these candies, their flavors have indeed changed slightly while I was eating them and their colors did change, also slightly, which I think is very interesting. Remember, these are Wonka candies, so a little bit of magic and mystery is only to be expected. At any rate, the fruity flavors offered in each box of Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper candy are dynamic and long – lasting.
Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper Candy is packaged in a bright yellow box that features an almost – psychedelic illustration of colored circles that reminds me of the set on the old Rowan & Martin’s Laugh In television program. The package opens and re – closes easily and the rear label lists all relevant ingredient and nutritional information.
All things considered, Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper Candies are a flavorful variety of jawbreakers candy that are inspired by the classic children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Although I am wary of eating most hard foods because of extensive dental work, I do enjoy the fruity flavors of these candies and they help to stifle my nicotine urges. These colorful little candies with an excellent name are reasonably – priced and are stocked and sold at food retailers across America.
