A Look into Willy Wonka
For all the lovers of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, a rerun of the cartoon would probably be a good idea. It is a musical fantasy family film with Willy Wonka as the main character. The story revolves around the Charlie, an only child, who receives a ticket that enables him to visit Willy Wonka’s factory. At the end of the day, Charlie is named as the heir of the factory.
In this particular episode, Wonka, the factory owner, shows the parents and their children his latest confectionery invention. The invention is a lickable wallpaper. More so, he allows everyone to come and sample it for themselves. Everyone is excited and cannot wait to see what the wallpaper tastes like. His comment, which has grown to be famous is,” Lick an orange. It tastes like an orange. The strawberries like strawberries! The snozberries taste like snozberries!”
As a kid, you most probably thought that a snozzberry was simply a fruit to be found in Willy Wonka’s Factory and not out here in the real world. As an adult, you are also probably wondering what in the world snozberries are.
What Really Are Snozzberries?
The real meaning of snozzberries only came out when Roald Dahl, the author of the book Willy Wonka’s Factory, wrote an adult novel “My Uncle Oswald”. It is worth noting that this explicit book was written by one of the world’s best children’s authors. The term snozzberry is used when Oswald’s partner, Yasmin Howcomely, has an experience with George Shaw. Yasmin’s goal was to get Gorge’s semen in a condom. When asked how she did it, she says that she just grabbed hold of his snozzberry, hung onto it like grim death and gave it a twist or to make him hold still.
It finally clearly comes out that in Willy Wonka’s Factory, that strange and mysterious flavor thought to be unique to just Willy Wonka’s world was just the taste of penis. The snozberries taste like snozberries was actually wallpaper tasting like penis. This came out 15 years later and only Roald Dahl and Willy Wonka were privy to that information. It is a revelation that gives people mixed feelings about Roald Dahl and his involvement in Willy Wonka. Are there any dirtier subtle messages that haven’t come out yet? Should he have been allowed to create content for children? Some people argue that what the children don’t know won’t hurt them.
Nonetheless, the quote has grown to be loved and used among adults, as seen in the many T-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers and even memes.
