If you could commission a custom type of candy from Willy Wonka’s factory, what would it be? (keep it clean ladies…. :grin: :rotflmao: )

oh, it has to be chocolate for me. even better with nuts. so my fave things in a confection would be, dark chocolat filled with milk chocolate truffle cream and rasperries and chopped cashews. Lovingly wrapped in a shiny golden foil by Willy's own slender elegant hands, sans gloves.

Definitely dark chocolate. Maybe something with toffee, or coffee beans, or strawberries. But as long as it's high-test dark chocolate, I am there! Oh, and deppraved - I like the Willy's naked hands idea! :disco:

Mmmm...

I think something along the lines of the Mayan confections made by Vianne. Luscious dark chocolates with hints of chili and other spices - maybe cinnamon and clove with a hint of orange.

Mr. Wonka is so successful with his line of sweets for children, I am SURE he could develop some hugely satisfying treats for the mature palate :drool:

And yes, I'll take mine hand-wrapped, also. Lovely idea Deppraved!

That would work for me too Veronica. But I like my chocolate with a bit of nuts, so I'd have to add some of those. :innocent:

Wonka Confections for the mature palate might sell better than the kiddie stuff. And you could charge a lot more, and he should be able to make them non-caloric, but still heavenly satisfying. :cloud9:

I truly have a mental block now. How can I possibly come up with a serious answer after all that banter? You ladies sure know how to push it right to the edge. :shocked: :lol:
