Quote of the week

Are you a chocolate addict? And do you already know where I'm heading with this question? Yeah, right to a chocolate factory. To THE chocolate factory. Wonka's.
I remember reading the book as a child and letting my imagination run wild.
I know what you think. You think this is surely about the movie with Johnny Depp. Wrong.

Come and meet the "old" Willy Wonka.
His machines might not look quite as cool and the chocolate not as rich as the "new" Wonka's, but it's still pretty much fun - like the lickable fruit wallpaper for example?

Wonka: "The strawberries taste like strawberries. The snozzberries taste like snozzberries."
Veruca Salt: "Snozzberries? Whoever heard of a snozzberry?"
Wonka (very softly): "We are the music makers. We are the dreamers of dreams."

I like that thought.


  1. Well Cat, I'm one of those who loooves chocolate, but I didn't see (yet) The Chocolate Factory, neither the new nor the old one!
    But I really like that thought too: "We are the music makers. We are the dreamers of dreams." How could I live my life without dreaming... my dreams?

  2. Love them both, but the original so much more. Saw it as a kid and loved it, love it as adult.

    I could throw quotes at you all day :)

    One of my favorites:

    "So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it."


    Thanks for the smile :)

  3. I love the book and the original film, but, have to confess I did enjoy the new version with Johnny Depp, I did think he made the character his own. A bit like Alice in Wonderland, brilliant book, brilliant original film, but the new version, again, I rather liked the quirky take on it. They are the same producers I think.....Ummm lickable wallpaper, anyone remember those scratch and sniff t'shirts? I had a strawberry one!
