Spree is a candy manufactured by The Willy Wonka Candy Company, a brand owned by Nestlé. Introduced in 1971, Spree is classified as a compressed dextrose candy, covered in a colored fruit-flavored shell. Depending on the market it is available in rolls or thin food type cardboard boxes. A variation called Chewy Spree is also available in two distinct types: Chewy Spree Original and Chewy Spree Mixed Berry. Chewy Spree boasts a similar size and shape as classic Spree, but with a chewy center. Chewy Spree is available in pouches, rather than rolls.
Prior to its purchase by Nestlé, the candy was manufactured by Sunline Inc.
