Roald Dahl’s classic book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is 50 years old this year.
It’s hard to believe that the tale of a lovable moppet who inherited a weirdo’s “world of pure imagination,” has been around for half a century. Much like the Everlasting Gobstopper, Willy Wonka is forever. (Thanks largely in part to the genius of Gene Wilder.)
Yesterday, Nestle released an ice-cream confection to help commemorate the occasion, say hello to WONKA PEEL A POPS!
Peel-A-Pops are vanilla ice cream in the shape of bananas surrounded by gummy peels. The flavors available are Vanilla Banana and gross-o-modo Vanilla Grape.
LISTEN TO ME PEOPLE: Fake grape NEVER tastes anything like real grapes, let’s cut the crap and call it what it is, PURPLE flavor. Besides, everyone knows that there is only ONE fake fruit flavor worth having, BANANA.
Fake banana rules, and those of you who disagree are a bunch of Vermicious Knids who hate all that’s scrumdiddlyumptious in this world.
Luckily Wonka, the makers of BANANA LAFFY TAFFY and RUNTS understand where their bread is buttered and have given the fake frozen bananas just what they need, FAKE BANANA FLAVORED PEELS!
You can buy these babies in a pack of 8 for under 5 bucks nationwide at Wal-Mart, Kroger’s and Target. Which is good because there’s not a chance in Wal-Mart (AKA Hell) that I’d shop there.
Ice cream covered in taffy all in the shape of wholesome fruit? For the love of fat fatties and high fructose, DON’T EVER CHANGE AMERICA! USAUSAUSA!!
