Farewell, Wonka bars

Hometown Favorites is an awesome online food and candy store that has perhaps the greatest list of discontinued goodies. If you're wondering if they don't make Seven Up bars or Aspen apple soda any more, or if it's just that your local stores don't carry it, this list is the bible. (Both Seven Up bars and Aspen are gone, by the way. Sniff.)

HF has just announced that the Wonka bar has been discontinued. (For now, Hometown Faves still has some for sale.) I can't think that I've ever eaten a Wonka bar, but surely, somewhere, someone is sad.

Now if Wonka would only bring back Wonka Oompas, the split-level chocolate-peanut butter candy that did Reese's Pieces one better. Who's with me?
