Fictional Candy That Inspires Real Products - Willy Wonka and Harry Potter

fictionwonka2.jpgBox Vox noted five products that were fictional at one point but turned into real life products. Two of them are candy, so we thought we'd show them to you. The first is the classic Willy Wonka chocolate bar. An entire Wonka brand has been developed in real life based on the movies and books.

Harry Potter also featured an unusual candy product: "Bernie Bott's Every Flavor Beans." Although introduced in the first book, it was apparently mentioned much more frequently in the movie.
