Check Out An Unpublished Chapter from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is one of the most iconic and beloved books, despite Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s effort. Now, a chapter entitled “The Vanilla Fudge Room” that did not make the cut to the final draft has been released, and it is delightfully dark as expected.

The Guardian has published the chapter, which was “deemed too wild, subversive and insufficiently moral for the tender minds of British children.” That seems rather harsh considering the story revolves around the disposal of children at the hands of a candy magnate bachelor. But maybe writing about two boys to be pounded like fudge and then cut up into “neat little squares” is a bit much.

You can check out the whole chapter in its amazing dark glory over here.
