00 Hello! Welcome in!

Black Friday record!

Jimmy talks about eating chocolate and having to keep going because the foil shrunk. 

Zoey had the same problem. 

Sees Candy uses magic foil! 

The Willy Wonka Candy Company started in 1971, when the Chicago candy company Breaker Confections licensed the “Willy Wonka” name so it could be used as a merchandising tie-in for the movie. In 1980, Breaker Confections changed its name to Willy Wonka Brands. Nestlé then bought the company eight years later, in 1988.

5 – We talk about Willy Wonka and why Charlie didn’t get punished the way everyone else did. 

Million Wonka March.
