How did I figure this out? My daughter asked if Snozzberries are real… I then asked my husband if they are real. He laughed at us. So, I googled. Probably one of my best Googles ever.
In ‘My Uncle Oswald‘, an adult novel by Roald Dahl, he used the word Snozzberries for the first time. Here’s the excerpt:
“How did you manage to roll the old rubbery thing on him?”
“There’s only one way when they get violent,” Yasmin said. “I grabbed hold of his snozzberry and hung onto it like grim death and gave it a twist or two to make him hold still.”
“I’ll bet it is.”
“You can lead them around anywhere you want like that.”
“It’s like putting a twitch on a horse.”
Tricky, tricky, Mr. Dahl. In conclusion, when Willy Wonka excitedly told them “Snozzberries taste like Snozzberries,” he was laughing on the inside because they were all licking dick-flavored wallpaper. Gross.
This makes Shrek look like child’s play.
