Everlasting Gobstoppers! This is our first fan-requested episode! Thanks to everyone for your support. Join us on Facebook to add your requests!

We talk about the inspiration for Willy Wonka and how author Roald Dahl developed this amazing character and his world! In our fun-fact section, we learn more about how the movie was made, how the author felt about the movie, and why there was never a sequel.

Then, we talk about our memories of the film. Steve watched it on Easter, and Megan... made a bunch of little kids cry. In addition to our recap and review, we try the nostalgic candy inspired by the film: Everlasting Gobstoppers!

Does the movie hold up, or did we just ruin our childhoods? Listen to find out!
