Children: What is it?
Bill, candy store owner: This is called a Scrumpdiddlyumptious Bar.
At the end of the Wonkamobile ride, Charlie asks "Hey Grandpa, what was that we just went through" To which Willy Wonka supposedly answers "Hsaw aknow." Which is supposed to "Wonka wash" spelled backwards. But he actually says "Hsaw akanow." Which would be "Wonaka wash" spelled backwards.
