Do. Not. Mispronounce the name. That aside, these candies are genuinely incredible and pretty much tick all the boxes you want from an American candy. They’re small, crunchy, satisfying, come in cool and funny shapes (fruit), and taste brilliant.
They’re part of the Wonka range and have been growing in popularity in the UK for years now, and actually sparked quite a wide debate online among lots of dedicated fans who were making suggestions for new flavours and angrily demanding answers if their favourites were changed.
There’s a reason they’re popular though and the quirky little things probably have some of the strongest, most satisfying fruity tastes going. They’re getting more popular every day so worth getting your hands on some now, and then you can dump them into our cool recipe we came up with.

Runts take over cookie bars
- 1 ½ cups of flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup of oats
- 1 stick of butter
- ⅓ cup of peanut butter
- ½ cup of sugar
- ½ cup of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 pack of runts
Preheat your oven to 200c and grease a baking tray. Once that’s done grab yourself a bowl and whisk together the flour, the oats, the salt and the baking soda.
Next, in a separate bowl, fold together the butter, the peanut butter, brown sugar and sugar until fluffy looking and a light colour. Nice work, now I want you to add in the vanilla, the full egg and the egg yolk and mix it all in together until well combined.
Now add in the other dry mix in to the moist mix and whisk until combined. Get those Runts in there and start mixing them in too. Now you’re ready to get it all into the baking tray and even it out before popping it in your oven.
Leave it in the oven for about 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown and looking tasty, and then take it out and let it cool for about another 15 minutes.
