Everlasting Gobstoppers are Willy Wonka's newest candy invention. They are found in the Inventing Room in a machine shooting them into a pool of water to test how long they last. Violet asks what the candies are and Mr. Wonka tells her that they are Everlasting Gobstoppers which are designed for children with very little pocket money. He picks up a red one and says that it can be sucked for a year and won't get any smaller. Violet then insists it's like gum, but Mr. Wonka says gum is for chewing and if a Gobstopper is tried to be chewed, your teeth would break but also taste terrific.
