When you were a kid watching 1971’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, based on the Roald Dahl book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, you no doubt found yourself wishing you were there in that factory enjoying the sugar rush to end all sugar rushes those kids were experiencing.
That of course includes the famous scene in which Wonka points out that the wallpaper in one particular area is no ordinary wallpaper. This wallpaper, adorned with various fruits, actually tastes like those fruits if you lick it. If you feel like getting a little crafty, this wallpaper is one thing you no longer have to fantasize about. A video has been shared that shows you how to make it at home.
Click on over to the other side to check it out.
The video comes from YouTube channel FunFoods, which shows you a fairly simple way to create the treat at home. It’d be a great thing to do for a theme viewing of the movie with friends, or with the kids if you have tiny humans running around.
I’ve also included the scene from the movie if you want a refresher.
See how to make the same lickable wallpaper from the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Taste all your favorite fruit flavors by licking your wall. This is a perfect recipe for a party.

Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka… in the Chocolate Factory!
We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;””
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.
