Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory: 9 Behind-The-Scenes Facts About The Classic Movie


What Exactly Is A Snozzberry?

Halfway through Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, our title character introduces the remaining children to lickable wallpaper, where the oranges taste like oranges, the pineapples taste like pineapples, the strawberries taste like strawberries, and the snozzberries taste like snozzberries. Ultimately, the candymaker doesn’t offer an explanation for what a snozzberry is, but nearly a decade-and-a-half later, Dahl published a rare adult novel called My Uncle Oswald, where the name “snozzberry” returned in a very… well, unflattering light. As Food Beast noted, the 1979 book has one character saying he “grabbed hold of his snozzberry,” using the definition-less word as a euphemism for, well, a man’s junk. Suffice to say, that puts this innocent scene in a new, unsavory light — though, again, we should noted that Dahl published this adult-themed novel well over a decade after Willy Wonka‘s release.
