Everlasting Gobstopper

An Everlasting Gobstopper

Everlasting Gobstoppers are a fictional and real life candy from the Wonka Candy Company. In the book and the films, the Everlasting Gobstopper jawbreaker (hence "gobstopper" which is gobble + stopper) that never gets smaller (hence "everlasting"). They are small, but very hard due to the longevity function. If one were to try chewing a Gobstopper, that someone would break all of their teeth out.


In the book, the Everlasting Gobstopper was being tested in The Testing Room.  An Oompa-Loompa was sucking on it for about a year, and the Gobstopper was just as good as ever. In the 1971 film, a fake Slugworth wanted Charlie Bucket and the other Golden Ticket winners to bring him an Everlasting Gobstopper to him so he can make a new candy. This was a test given to Charlie and the others to test their loyalty, as Wonka made them promise not to show them to anyone else. Veruca was the only one to fail the test.  Charlie kept his promise, returned his Gobstopper to Willy Wonka, and passed the test with flying colors with Wonka giving him the factory.
