Biggest Plot Holes In Wonka

For a movie about chocolate, it doesn’t get a lot of screen time, aside from the fountain at the end, and some delightful treats that look way more like sculptural, colorful candy than easily recognizable chocolate bars. So where is the sweet stuff?

Well, the joke’s on us. The intricately shaped candy in the movie that doesn’t look a lot like chocolate, actually is chocolate: Chocolatier Gabriella Cugno made over 2,000 chocolates for the movie. “Any piece of chocolate you see, it’s not wax,” Keegan-Michael Key tells Vanity Fair. “It’s not like they cut to a prop that looks like a piece of chocolate; the chocolatier made all of it. Sometimes, it was so delicious that I asked for an extra take.”

Cugno’s intricate bonbons are more in keeping with the general Old World Europe style of the film, rather than the 1971 “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” very American take on big old chocolate bars. Wildly, even the liquid chocolate that Willy and Noodle almost drown in was real. Director Paul King tells People, “We actually made an enormous vat of hot chocolate — not scalding, just warm hot chocolate for them to immerse themselves in.” This just might be the most delicious “Wonka” plot hole that isn’t truly a plot hole at all.
