Welcome to the Dark History podcast. Remember Augustus Gloop, the kid from Willy Wonka who drowned in chocolate? It turns out that happens in real life, too. Yep, candy has been responsible for MANY deaths. Think poisoned candy, a flood of burning molasses, and a chocolate Easter bunny explosion. Turns out candy has a not-so-sweet side, too.
