Ahead of the much-anticipated premiere of Warner Bros. Pictures’ Wonka, Xbox is lauding the famous chocolatier’s return with a first-of-its-kind, sweet-toothed gaming experience. In an all-new sweepstakes, fans can enter to win an edible Xbox Controller made of 100% pure chocolate and wrapped in a signature gold wrapper, beginning November 13.

The controller, which features a custom, burgundy-colored design inspired by Wonka’s classic coat from the film, comes with five additional chocolate truffles that have been crafted to advance the Xbox gaming experience with Wonka-inspired touches. Among them, “Achievement Hunting” includes a number of energy-boosting ingredients; “Button Smasher” buzzes with espresso; “Your Citrus Sidekick” nods to the “fruitful variety” of Xbox Game Pass titles with notes of orange; “Xtra Kick” mixes sweet and spicy, and “Wonka for the Win” is simply 100% pure chocolate.

Outside of the cocoa-packed prizes, the gaming company has also crafted a movie-inspired Xbox Series X and storefront display for select sweepstakes winners. The limited-edition console is modeled after Willy Wonka’s chocolate store; however, unlike the controller, the gaming system is not edible.

Those interested in the aforementioned Wonka prizes can enter the sweepstakes by following Xbox on X (formerly Twitter) and retweeting the company’s official sweepstakes tweet. The giveaway runs from November 13 to December 14, just ahead of the Timothée Chalamet-starring pic’s premiere on December 15.

Elsewhere, Spider-Man 2 has sold more than five million copies in less than two weeks after its release.
