Spree is a candy manufactured by The Willy Wonka Candy Company, a brand owned by Nestlé. Spree was created by the Sunline Candy Company of St. Louis, MO in the mid-1960s. In the 1970s the brand was bought by Nestle' who markets the candy under the Willy Wonka brand. 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.
