A lot might be wondering what is a snozzberry after watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The film is an iconic piece of pop culture from over forty years ago. The 1971 version, based on Roald Dahl’s Charlie & the Chocolate factory follows a young boy who wins himself access to this famous confectionery simply by being good enough to take his Grandfather there. A remake with the same name came out in 2005 starring Johnny Depp.
The last variety of candy Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder), the master of chocolate, lists out in a scene from the 1971 film is snozzberry. But what is a snozzberry exactly, and how does it taste? Once again, TikTok has come to our aid, and it turns out that the backstory of this made-up fruit is NSFW.
What is a Snozzberry?
We are led to assume that a snozzberry is a type of fruit in the 1971 movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the 1964 novel on which it was based. And at first glance, looking back at the word’s history in Roald Dahl’s works doesn’t seem all that bad.
The book Some Time Never: A Fable for Supermen was released in 1948 by Roald Dahl. Today I Found Out claims that the book makes reference to snozzberries as an actual berry that creatures known as gremlins consume. According to them, they serve as the gremlins’ primary source of nutrition in the novel and are essentially described as “sweet, juicy, red fruits that grow in orchards.”
It’s possible that this is what Willy Wonka is referring to in the movie and novel. Everything seems to be PG, right?
A TikToker with the username honey.kitt, however, shared a video in December 2020 that introduced many people to a completely new meaning of the word in a different Roald Dahl story. We discover that Roald published My Uncle Oswald, an adult book, in 1979, a year after Wonka.
In this book, Uncle Oswald (real name Oswald Hendryks Cornelius) aims to earn a large sum of money by seducing renowned men, robbing them of their sperm, and then selling it to women who want to have children by great men. In the book, the term “snozzberries” alludes to penises rather than fruit.
Uncle Oswald incorporates the help of Yasmin Howcomely to assist in the execution of his plan. In a particular passage, she describes obtaining a condom stuffed with semen from a man by the name of Bernard Shaw. “There’s only one way when they get violent,” Yasmin said. “I grabbed hold of his snozzberry and hung onto it like grim death and gave it a twist or two to make him hold still.”
What Do the Snozzberries in the Movie “Willy Wonka” Taste Like?
In the sequence from the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory where snozzberries are mentioned, Willy leads the young guests and their guardians to a room with lickable wall covering. There are snozzberies in addition to other fruits that people have enjoyed for many years, such as strawberries, bananas, pineapples, and others. Veruca Salt, one of the kids, asks him “Snozzberries? Who’s ever heard of a snozzberry?”
The chocolatier grabs Veruca by the face and replies, “We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of the dreams,” before continuing.
You can check out Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on HBO Max while you can stream Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on both HBO Max and Netflix.
