12/01/2022



Almost everybody has a soft spot for sweet stuff, so it's no surprise to learn that there are numerous movies about candy. We wanted to round up our favorites for you to watch, let's get into it:


Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)


No list featuring movies about candy would be complete without this classic - the 70s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film. Based on the classic book from Roald Dahl, the film tells the story of a young boy called Charlie who finds a golden ticket to receive a tour of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. Everybody knows the story by now because the film is such a classic. One thing we love about this movie is how inventive all the different types of candy are. It's still great fun to watch!


The Dark Side of Chocolate (2010)


This one is totally different from our first pick, but still very interesting and worth watching. It's a documentary about chocolate, and how in certain cocoa plantations young children are forced to work long hours to harvest the beans that are used to create the chocolate that we consume. It's great to celebrate candy, but it's also important to buy responsibly and this documentary is a stark reminder of that.
