Wonka Weekend Preview! – Super Skrunch and Oompas!
This Friday and Saturday, CollectingCandy.com will feature back-to-back posts on the two original offerings of the Wonka candy brand. Included will be several never-before-seen wrappers that should serve as fun surprises.
I’m excited to bring these important pieces of Wonka history to you, but there’s still work to be completed before I’ll be ready to unveil part one, so today I want to offer up a teaser image for what’s to come.
With that in mind – check out this early trade ad from January 1972, featuring Willy Wonka’s “first two candies”; Super Skrunch and Peanut Butter Oompas!

I hope that today’s teaser image serves as a tantalizing sneak-peek at what I’ve got lined up for the next two days and that you can stop by tomorrow for the first of this weekend’s Wonka-riffic posts.
See you next time!
