An Honest Love of ChocolateIt turns out that Roald Dahl’s inspiration for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory came out of the author’s own life. When he was a kid, he was a tester for Cadbury. He and other boys were sent packages of chocolate bars, one "control" and 11 new flavors. Their feedback allowed the company to develop their product line based on the feedback that the boys provided about the "test" bars. Even the issue of candy espionage was real. Employees who worked at chocolate companies at the time were watched, lest they sell their company’s trade secrets to the competition. As for Dahl, the experience made him wish to work in the chocolate invention room of a chocolate company.
