Enter Willy Wonka’s legendary chocolate factory to discover just how magical the supply chain can be.
For many storied, strange, and sugary decades, Willy Wonka — the famed candy maker and recluse — has been bringing innovative sweets only he could imagine to life. From the canonical Wonka Bar to the radical Scrumdiddlyumptious Bar, Wonka has been the bedrock of confectionary experimentation for decades. Nothing evokes memories of childhood like the vibrant pink of a Wonka Bar wrapper, freshly unpackaged and ready for devouring.
So of course, it makes one curious: how does Wonka churn out such a wide array of chocolates, gummies, and other confections, then deliver them to the eager mouths of candy lovers all over the world?
Armed with a notebook, a candy cane-shaped pen, and without using any tricks or magic at all, HighJump made its way over to Willy Wonka’s notoriously secretive factory to get a tour from the Candy Man himself. Once there, we got an intimate peek at this logistical wonderland: from the Tunnel of Terror (crucial in the cultivation of Wonka’s superior milk chocolate) to the Room of Invention, we saw it all. And now we’re here to tell you how the magic happens — though, we didn’t get the recipe for the Everlasting Gobstopper, so you can quit reading here, Slugworth.
