Everlasting Gobstoppers are named after the candy in the popular children's book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" written by Roald Dahl. They were first produced by Breaker Confections in 1976. Although sweet and tasty, Everlasting Gobstoppers are not a healthy food choice; Foodfacts gives the candy a health score of "F."
In addition to name-brand Everlasting Gobstoppers, regular gobstopper candies are sold in sweet shops throughout the world. They have been popular with children since the early 1900s. Known as "jawbreakers" in the United States and Canada, the hard candy is licked or sucked instead of being bitten into. It dissolves slowly and typically lasts a very long time in a person's mouth. Gobstoppers consist of several different layers, with each layer of the candy dissolving to reveal a different-colored layer underneath before the candy ultimately dissolves completely.Learn more about Food Facts
