Mr. Willy Wonka - "So shines a good deed in a weary world"

"Mr Wonka"

The world falls in love again with Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory since the passing of Gene Wilder, R.I.P Mr. Wonka.

Willy Wonka, from years of a recluse in his factory, announces that five lucky people will be given a tour of the factory, shown all the secrets of his amazing candy, and one will win a lifetime supply of Wonka chocolate.  Nobody wants the prize more than young Charlie, but as his family is so poor that buying even one bar of chocolate is a treat, buying enough bars to find one of the five golden tickets is unlikely in the extreme.  But in movie-land, magic can happen. Charlie, along with four somewhat odious other children, gets the chance of a lifetime and a tour of the factory.  Along the way, mild disasters befall each of the odious children, but can Charlie beat the odds of Mr. Wonka's test? One of many tests is Mr. Slugworth approaches each child to spy or steal the secret recipes to Wonka's treats.

With the passing of Gene Wilder of this past Sunday, an announcement (the same day) from Hershey Trust, its largest shareholder, noted a potential takeover of Hershey. Known for its namesake Kisses and chocolate bars, would face obstacles. That obstacle was meet when the offer from Mondelez International Inc. for roughly $23 billion was turned down.

It's tough enough we've lost Willy Wonka, but it seems that choosing an individual like Charlie, we still have the chocolate factory.
