Willy Wonka UK’s Halloween Screams from 1999!
Across the pond and just before the turn of the Millennium, Nestle UK created a brief but fun seasonal release with their Wonka Screams. Make the jump to check out these chocolate-covered raspberry Halloween treats!
Released for the Halloween season back in 1999, Wonka Screams were small milk chocolates with raspberry centers. I have examples of two different wrappers, though there might have been a larger variety of them and perhaps even other fruit flavor centers. I can’t be sure as these are the only two wrappers I’ve ever come across for Wonka Screams. Here they are:
UK – Nestle-Wonka – Screams Raspberry neck-bolts – Halloween candy wrapper – 1999
UK – Nestle-Wonka – Screams Raspberry skeleton – Halloween candy wrapper – 1999
How’s that for a pair of obscure-yet-fun bits of recently-vintage confectionery Halloween goodness?
And that’s everything I’ve got to share on Wonka’s Halloween Screams. See you next time!
