What Are Gobstoppers Sweets?
Sold under the Wonka Candy Company label, gobstopper sweets are hard, round candies otherwise known as jawbreakers. They’re made from several layers of sweet coating, with each layer a different colour or flavour.
Gobstoppers are made by well-known British manufacturers such as Walkers and Tidmans, and they’ve not changed much over the years. They’re perhaps best remembered from the film Willy Wonka, where an everlasting gobstopper was invented.
Gobstopper Sweets UK - A History
One of Willy Wonka’s favourites, gobstoppers are otherwise known as “jaw-breakers” and change colours and flavours.
They’ve been popular in the UK for over 80 years but only around 40 years in the US and were named after the everlasting gobstoppers in Roald Dahl’s children’s book, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.’ The book was then turned into the movie, ‘Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory’, and as suggested in the story, gobstopper candy lasts forever – hence the name “everlasting gobstoppers”.
While our gobstopper sweets might not last forever, some of the larger ones are almost too big to fit in your mouth, and the fact they last so long has always made them a popular pocket money sweet. They were a particular favourite between the World Wars, when sweet treats were rare.
Wholesale Gobstopper Sweets
Suck on a Wonka gobstopper, and you’ll treat your eyes (and your mouth) to layer upon layer of vibrant, hard candy – from the shiny outer shell right down to the inmost centre. As well as looking awesome, the experience is equally impressive, especially when you suck away on a piece. That’s when you discover each new layer contains a fresh, fruity flavour to keep your mind whirling and your taste buds guessing.
These vibrantly coloured balls of sweets are a retro classic, and they last for ages. Wonderful if you want a moment’s peace and, better yet, they don't taste too shabby either - in fact, they’re rather delicious!
