This holiday celebrates the classic candy with a hard outer shell and a chalky center. Let’s take a look at why this unique candy has become so popular and how you can celebrate Gobstopper Day this year.

What is a Gobstopper?

A Gobstopper is a type of candy that has become popular over the years due to its contrasting textures and long-lasting flavor. It consists of a hard outer shell and a chewy or chalky center that melts in your mouth as you bite into it. The most common flavors are grape, cherry, and watermelon, but there are also other variations such as sour apple or blue raspberry. The outer shells come in different colors depending on the flavor, making them even more eye-catching!

Gobstoppers have been around and sold in candy shops for the past century. The everlasting gobstopper, a fictional gobstopper, was first created in Roald Dahl’s children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Years later, Nestlé’s Willy Wonka Candy Company created a gobstopper named after those from the book. Since then they have become widely popular among kids and adults alike. They are often used as prizes at carnivals, amusement parks, and fairs because they last longer than other types of candy. Plus, they taste delicious!
