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. Spree was an idea of an employee named John Scout. 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.
