The gal who played the spoiled Veruca Salt in the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie has written a book about her experience shooting the film.
I did save my Everlasting Gobstopper but I sold it about eight years ago. I gather that it’s popping up at various auctions these days. I sold it before its price reached the dizzying heights of today. It wasn't candy. It's made from - if you can imagine - sort of molded plastic; something similar to what you would get in a lid on a takeaway cup of coffee.
Made of plastic?
I guess they really are everlasting.
