Wonka Xploder

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Wonka Xploder was a chocolate bar launched by Nestlé in the United States in 2000,[1] and in the UK in 1999.[2] In Australia, it was released under the "KaBoom" name.

Described as "tongue crackling candy" or "exploding chocolate", the bar's ingredients included milk chocolate and popping candy.[1]

The bar was likely inspired by a similar "exploding candy" gag from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

The bar was discontinued in 2005, but was re-released as "Tinglerz" in 2008.
