An anniversary tribute to Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory

In honor of it's 30th anniversary, Warner Bros. will soon release the original Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory on DVD. We've all agreed that this movie version is far superior to Tim Burton's. It comes down to this: Gene Wilder was just too hard to trump, even for the super talented Johnny Depp.

Shown below is an image of a poster that was produced for French markets. The 70s graphics are supreme and capture the film's psychedelic, sinister yet sweet feel. I really like how Mike TV is depicted, trapped in a blue TV gas bubble.

I have a fantastic addition to add to this WONKA news tidbit. Below is  a preview of a colorful item that will be on display at our upcoming candy art exhibit. The first FIVE responders to guess what it is get a FREE Wonka Bar.
Patty Botello made this wonderful item for our art show. Tell us, what is it exactly??
