I’m not going to lie – I’ve never seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I read it as a kid (and the Glass Elevator!) but I’ve never seen the films. Oops!
However, the one thing I loved as a kid was imagining all the chocolates and the wacky ideas and things Willy Wonka came up with! I used to love imagining the cool things all these chocolate bars could do – and coming up with some of my own too!
One of these that I remember in particular was a chocolate bar with popping candy in – NOW THESE EXIST MAY I POINT OUT – because I loved both those things SO MUCH so putting them together seemed like a good idea!
Then we had more magical things in my imagination like a chocolate bar that could make you float, turn you invisible, have different flavours depending on your mood and packaging that could turn into X-Ray specs… needless to say I was a very imaginative child. I just wish I had the energy to actually go market these ideas or turn them into real products!
As part of our Chocolate Factory competition, we’re giving away a prize for someone who can come up with a cool idea. Go find the competition by clicking here and enter your cool and wacky ideas… PS you can’t reuse any of mine!
