Happy Easter! Join us in the Chocolate Factory to relive some of the tastiest sweets this chocolate-eating season with our Top Ten Wonka Treats

For many of us, Easter weekend wouldn't be complete without a chocolate egg or two. But what other sweet treats leave your mouth watering? There are a fair few from Willy Wonka's factory we wouldn't mind trying... so here is our Top 10.

If you're feeling inspired to create your own Wonka-invention this Easter weekend, we've got all you need to get cracking on that idea right here...

1. Wonka's Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight

Even the name of this chocolate bar sounds delicious. Just imagine the fudgey mallowy delightful goodness... AND it's the very bar that helped Charlie find his Golden Ticket. Hooray.

2. Swudge

Swudge is grass made of soft, minty sugar. Just imagine that!

3. The Chocolate River

What could be better than than taking big slurps of chocolate right from the river? Poor old Augustus Gloop - it would be very tempting...

4. Everlasting Gobstoppers

A gobstopper that never disappears? Ever? That sounds very sweet to us.

5. The Chewing Gum Meal

It might have spelled the end of Violet Beauregarde, but the idea of a tasty little dinner inside a stick of gum is still a mouthwatering one.

6. Fizzy Lifting Drinks

A bit like The BFG's frobscottle, a drink of this would have us fizzing with excitement for days.

7. Square Sweets That Look Round

How clever and confusing and utterly Wonka-bonkers is this idea? We would very much like to try a square sweet that looks round - if only we could.

8. Lickable Wallpaper

Hygiene aside, decorating your room with lickable wallpaper would be an amazing thing to take up to. "The snozzberries taste like snozzberries!"

9. The Vanilla Fudge Mountain

Did you see the previously unpublished chapter from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory all about this tasty mountain? It was released last year - take a look here

10. Warming Candies

Another previously unknown Wonka treat is the genius invention known as Warming Candies. They do spell trouble for a few naughty boys in an early draft of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as you can read here, but wouldn't it be great to try a Warming Candy on a cold day?

Which Wonka-licous treat is your very favourite? If you're over 13, come and tell us on Facebook or Twitter.
