WONKA Gobstopper Candy Canes and Frosty Nerds Review and Recipe

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

One of my favorite movies, growing up, was Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory(not to be confused with the Johnny Depp version).  When my kids were little, I interested them to the joys of Charlie Bucket, Everlasting Gobstoppers, Fizzy Lifting Drinks and all the rest of Willie Wonka’s delicious creations.

I was so excited when Nestlé® asked me to review a couple of their seasonal products, including Wonka® Gobstopper® Candy Canes and the Wonka® Frosty Nerds® Theater Box.

Wonka Gobstopper Candy Canes review


Wonka Gobstopper Candy Canes come in 3 different colors, each with the changing fruity flavors and flavor rings we associate with Everlasting Gobstoppers.  They come 12 candy canes to a pack and retail for about $2.49.  Bud and his girlfriend loved the different flavors so much that I almost didn’t get to try any for myself.  Thank goodness I did, though because they are delicious!!  Also, they were fun to use for decorating our Christmas tree.


Wonka Frosty Nerds Theater BoxFrosty Nerds are red, white and green candies that come in a variety of tangy and sweet, crunchy fruit flavors.  They come in a five ounce theater box and retail for about $.99.  We all loved these candies, although we could only eat a very few alone because I needed to save them for the recipe.


We found our recipe at Nestlé’s Simply Celebrate website.  We made the Nerds Crispy Rice Cereal Treats recipe, because it was super easy.


3 tablespoons butter

10 ounces mini marshmallows

6 cups crispy rice cereal

5 ounce box WONKA® Frosty NERDS®


1. Melt butter and marshmallows in a large sauce pan. Stir frequently. Once completely melted, remove from heat.

2. Add cereal. Stir until cereal is evenly coated.

3. Add Wonka® Frosty Nerds® and stir thoroughly.

4. Spray hands with cooking spray and gently press mixture into a greased (cooking spray) 13X9 pan. Let cool.

5. Cut into 2 inch squares.


 I would definitely recommend the Wonka® products make a great addition to my holiday entertaining.  They are a fun and inexpensive way to brighten up the holidays!!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
