Nerds (candy)

Nerds are a tiny, tangy crunchy candy made by the Willy Wonka Candy Company. They aren’t made by the real Willy Wonka; he’s a made-up literary character. They are made by the fake Willy Wonka; they are candy company created by business moguls to exploit the literary character. Nerds typically come in a cardboard box with a divider separating two different flavors. But they also make small individual-size boxes with only one flavor for Halloween, Valentine’s Day, etc. They also have a big box of Rainbow Nerds that are movie theater-size. The big box of Rainbow Nerds is the best because it has the biggest Nerds. Some can be as big as a pea. That’s a big nerd. That might not seem very impressive, but I’m easily impressed. Nerds are probably my favorite Wonka candy on the market. They are fruity, sour, crunchy, and fun to eat. Plus they have a great name. You can offer them out and insult someone at the same time. It’s hard to beat that.

SweeTarts

SweeTarts are sweet and sour candies made by the Willy Wonka Candy Company. I wish that Oompa-Loompas actually made this candy, but Wonka is owned by Nestle. They are kind of chalky and pasty; you either love them or hate them. A quick look on Wikipedia tells me that they are essentially the same recipe as Pixy Stix or Lik-M-Aid, just in pill form as opposed to powdered. Get kids hooked on sugar and they will keep coming back. I can’t really tell what the flavors are, but they come in different colors and that’s good enough for me.
