If you grew up in the 1990s, chances are you encountered the Wonder Ball, at some point or another. But in the early 2000s, the small candy-filled chocolate sphere disappeared from store shelves, and fans of the treat were horrified. Some people still want to know: what happened to the Wonder Ball? Are the fun little edibles doomed to the same fate as so many discontinued-but-still-beloved treats, like Jell-O Pudding Pops and Butterfinger BBs?
Fortunately, Wonder Balls are making a comeback. The product reinvented itself more than once, but a 2013 movie appearance may have given the Wonder Ball enough staying power to stick around this time. And more than one '90s kid will rejoice as a whole new generation of candy lovers are introduced to this one of a kind yummy toy.
These candy facts will certainly surprise you.
