Shop for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 50th anniversary items

If Veruca Salt were shopping for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 50th anniversary goodies, she might just ask for a few of these...

Veruca Salt - one of the not-so-well-behaved Golden Ticket winners in Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - is a spoilt girl. Her regular cry of "I Want! I Want!" is usually answered by her parents, but ultimately they all pay the price for such terrible behaviour in Mr Wonka's factory, thanks to some very sensible squirrels and an unpleasant rubbish chute.

So we're not advocating channeling Veruca Salt, but we do like to think there are a few things here that might be of interest were she looking to celebrate Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's 50th birthday...
