Dare to Write: What’s Your Wonka?

Paper NationsDare To WriteLeave a Comment


In honour of Roald Dahl Day, this Dare to Write challenge is inspired by a passage from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory:

“Mr Willy Wonka can make marshmallows that taste of violets, and rich caramels that change colour every ten seconds as you suck them, and little feathery sweets that melt away deliciously the moment you put them between your lips. He can make chewing-gum that never loses its taste, and sugar balloons that you can blow up to enormous sizes before you pop them with a pin and gobble them up. And, by a most secret method, he can make lovely blue birds’ eggs with black spots on them, and when you put one of these in your mouth, it gradually gets smaller and smaller until  suddenly there is nothing left except a tiny little pink sugary baby bird sitting on the tip of your tongue.”

If you had to invent a new confectionery concoction for Wonka, what would you make? Describe your dream chocolate bar in as much detail as possible. Will it especially suit a specific mood or time of day? Will it give you any particular powers? What kinds of colours, smells, tastes and textures will you give your invention?

Don’t forget to share your writing with us on Facebook, Twitter or by email. We can’t wait to see the Wonka-worthy creations you come up with!
