WONKA candy returns to stores and Walmart customers can buy them first and earn free cash.
The Wonka Magic Hat Gummies are hitting the major retailer’s shelves soon, parent company Ferrara Candy Company announced.
They are sold in 4 and 6 ounce bags, with each bag available in the following flavors.
- Strawberry Watermelon
- raspberry grape
- Orange strawberry
- Magical berries
“For added fun, each Magic Hat gummi contains a sweet magical surprise with every fruity bite,” Ferrara said.
The candy’s return comes in celebration of Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Wonka,” which is slated to hit theaters nationwide on December 15.
The film will serve as a prequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
But Walmart fans can get their hands on the Magic Hat gummies for the first time when they first hit stores starting September 1.
Then, starting September 28, retailers across the country will start selling the candy.
The suggested retail price, according to Ferrara, is between $1.99 and $3.69.
The gummy bears will be available in either 4-ounce or 6-ounce packages.
Additionally, customers who purchase the sweet treat can earn $5 in rewards to enjoy Wonka in person and even enter for a chance to win a Warner Bros. Studio Hollywood Deluxe Tour.
“Just text me ‘WONKA’ to the code (811811) found on packs of Wonka Magic Hat Gummies to automatically win to win,” Ferrara said.
Ferrara calls the candy a “limited edition,” meaning it won’t be around forever.
