Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is one of the greatest movies ever made. Gene Wilder's version of Willy Wonka is by far the definitive performance of the character, and one of the best of his entire career.
The movie is one of those classics that has remained a favorite for decades, but it's not only because the acting is so good. The set decoration in this movie is beyond incredible. Everything is supposed to be edible inside the factory, and they were able to make it all look so appetizing. Which of the treats looks like it would be the most delicious and which would you actually want to eat?
Let's give them some ratings!
So it makes sense that there needs to be a huge supply of chocolate, but I am not sure that river form is the best way to store it. Even if German children aren't sticking their hands in it, there are many other things that could fall in and ruin the flavor.
Rating: 5/10 - Good in theory, bad in reality
Edible Tea Cups
You know what, not having to do dishes is a pretty powerful incentive. Even if the cup doesn't taste great, you don't have to wash it! Chances are it would taste awesome though, Willy Wonka is the best of the best.
Rating: 8/10 - Not having to wash the dish is a pretty huge selling feature in my opinion
Giant Gummy Bears
I mean, you can actually buy these so it isn't like this is all that outrageous. Although at the time, they weren't readily available so it must have been pretty awesome.
Rating: 6/10 - That is SO much candy in one piece
Golden Eggs (Filled with Chocolate)
Is it real gold that these are coated in? It's been a while since I last watched this movie. Either way, if it is filled with chocolate, I am in.
Rating: 9.5/10 - If that is real gold you can make a fortune! But it's going to be a bit tricky to break that golden shell...
Mushrooms Filled with Cream
It looks like the mushroom is filled with the cream from an eclair! It probably isn't the greatest that it was all exposed to the air like that, but you can't win them all! I wonder what that mushroom was made out of?
Rating: 7/10 - Not the easiest to eat, but maybe you are supposed to break off pieces of the mushroom and dip it?
The Chewy Ball Augustus Gloop Eats
He sits down and demolishes this like he is eating an apple or something. There is no hesitation with that kid. What is it made out of though? I guess we will never know...
Rating: 6/10 - Honestly it doesn't look super appetizing but it's probably fine
Hard to tell what this is really made out of, but if everything in the room is edible, that means the leaves of the trees are too!
Rating: 5/10 - Wouldn't be my first choice when there are hundreds of other options, but depending on the flavor it would maybe be okay.
Three Course Meal Gum
If they had worked out all the kinks this might be super convenient for those of us who can't cook, but personally, I would still rather eat a meal.
Rating: 4/10 - I mean, it turned a kid into a blueberry so it's probably not a great option. Until then though, it's pretty good.
