How to Get Your Jokes on the Laffy Taffy Wrapper

Share the laughter. Send your jokes in to Laffy Taffy.

Willy Wonka isn't just a fictional movie character. It's also a brand owned by the Nestle candy company. One of the products marketed under the Willy Wonka brand is a popular candy called Laffy Taffy. These chewy, stretchy, fruity candy pieces come with jokes written on the wrapper, hence the "Laffy" in Laffy Taffy. If you've come up with a couple jokes that you're ready to share with the world, the next step could be sending them in to Laffy Taffy.

Write down as many jokes as you can, as often as you think of them. The more jokes you have, the better odds you have of getting one published on a Laffy Taffy wrapper.

Test your jokes out on your friends and family. Take two of the jokes that received the best feedback and write them down on a clean sheet of paper.

Put your jokes into an envelope, stamp the envelope and address it to:

Willy Wonka Candy Factory Laffy Taffy Jokes Entries P.O. Box 72309 Rockford, MN 55572

Send your envelope out and hope for the best. The more high quality jokes you send in, the better odds you have of getting them on a wrapper.
