The term Gobstopper derives from 'gob', which is slang in United Kingdom and Ireland for mouth. The sweet was a favorite among British schoolboys between World War I and World War II. In his children's book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, British author Roald Dahl described "Everlasting Gobstoppers", a fictional type of gobstopper that could never be finished. Gobstoppers have been sold in traditional candy shops for at least a CENTURY!! 💯
