Wonka Exceptionals Really Are Exceptional!

What's in a name? Well, if that name is Wonka, I'll tell you. Imagination with a generous sprinkle of magic. Like all good children, my kids believe. They believe in God, Santa, and the wonderful world of make believe. They also believe in Willie Wonka and the Oompa Loompas. Don't laugh. I do too. Recently, Logan asked if they were real. "What do you think?", I answered. His reply was simple and sweet. "Yes mommy, they have to be!" Logan and I had just unwrapped a package containing a few bars that might sound familiar to you. Waterfall Chocolate Bar, Scrumdiddlyumptious Bar, and Domed Dark Chocolate Bar. The last two were in my package! I also received Fruit Marvels and Fruit Jellies, but more on that in a minute!

Watching the original Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie, which happens to be a family favorite, I knew all about the waterfall (after all, that's how they mix their chocolate!) and while I didn't have the opportunity to try the Waterfall Bar this time around, you can bet that I will as soon as I get my hands on one! The Scrumdiddlyumptious Bar made me smile and the name itself took me back to my childhood. Toffee, cookies, and peanuts drown in some of the best chocolate that I've tasted. Smooth and creamy, each little square would melt on my tongue and leave bits of good stuff behind! The Domed Dark Chocolate Bar was wonderful too! If you've been reading my blog, you'll know that I really don't like dark chocolate. I did before I had Sam, so I'm guessing he did something to me to change that. I usually take a bite (I have to in order to write about it) and leave the rest for Logan or my husband, but after my first bite, I demanded an equal portion! It was perfect!
While I didn't unwrap a golden ticket, I did feel the magic as I held each of these bars in my hand. I honestly couldn't pick a favorite. They were each wonderful in different ways! Before I end this post, I need to tell you all about the Fruit Jellies and Fruit Marvels. I HATE jelly. Imagine my surprise when I popped one of these fruity sensations into my mouth and I immediately fell for the new candy with the fruity center! Everyone was surprised! A hard shell surrounds a soft fruit center. The center is very jelly like. Bite down on it an experience an explosion of fruit in your mouth! They must be straight from the juicing room! These are quite unique and the flavors are intense! The Fruit Jellies are little squares of sugared jelly. I did not like them as much, but they were still good! I may not have found the coveted golden ticket, but I definitely struck gold with Wonka Exceptionals! Pick up some at a store near you!
To Disclose: I was sent a variety of Wonka Exceptionals to complete this review. No monetary compensation received.
