Are the "Snozzberries" in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Referring to Male Genitalia?

By Staff Writer

Domenic V. asks: Is it true that the snozzberries in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory were dicks? Given the dark undercurrent of Roald Dahl’s works, perhaps it wouldn’t be surprising if his famous snozzberries mentioned in the book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1964) made into the film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971), were, in fact, penises. Much more importantly, 31 years before My Uncle Oswald and 16 years before Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Dahl published Some Time Never: A Fable for Supermen. Thus, from the evidence at hand, it would appear Dahl’s mention of it in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is probably just an inside allusion to his made up main food source of mythical gremlins. The snozzberries taste like snozzberries!
