Liza Doolots was an ordinary filly. Ordinary, but also content with her way of life, her friends and the things she loved. And there were many things that Liza Doolots loved, but the things she loved most were candies and the candy store of her parents Lyra Heartstrings and Bon Bon.
One day, though, Liza's life takes an exciting, then terrifying, turn. A candy factory rises in Ponyville, a product of the ever increasing industrialism in Equestria. Its owner, a charming and joyful stallion called Sweet Treat, promises a new age of candy, but the presence of the factory also means that the age of Ponyville's candy store comes to an end.
Cheap candies, air pollution, greed for money and five golden tickets, but all that Liza can see is how the candy store of her parents dwindles and how her life changes against her will.
The candy factory must be stopped..... and Liza and her parents are determined to do everything to save their little candy business from becoming a victim of gentrification.


A musical story and ponified reimagination of the movie "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory", with a darker and more serious take on the subject of factories, industrialism and gentrification.
This story is a collaborative project between DinkyUniverse, who provided the idea, and me, who writes the story.
The cover art was drawn by DinkyUniverse.

Work on this story happens on Saturdays and new chapters get released once they are ready.

Very nice! Looking forward to see the next chapter. And a candy factory, isn't so surprising to me, given mlp combines technology with magic. I mean, they got a dam, trains, cranes and jackhammers, something you also pointed out in your aunt mille story.

And personally, I find Tootsie Flute is easer to keep in my head than Liza Doolots, no offense

Exactly. And we have also seen that there actually really is a certain rise of industrialism in Equestria, when we found out in Season 7 that Ponyville has gotten a toy store that sells mass-produced toys, which is why this story has no Alternate Universe tag. In theory, the events of this story could happen. And Liza is obviously Lyra's and Bon Bon's daughter and we have never seen anything in the show or in the official comics or books that contradicts the possibility of the three of them having a candy store together.
So I have a pony version of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" here that could very well happen like this in Equestria.

Thanks for reading and for the favourite and Happy Hearth's Warming Eve!

After you read all of this story, you'll remember "Liza Doolots" as a name, cause there is going to be a lot of Liza in here. :scootangel:

Of course, you're and welcome and same to you.

Naturally, was just back then when I wrote about her, plus at the time, seemed more suiting as a name from Lyra

And Liza is obviously Lyra's and Bon Bon's daughter and we have never seen anything in the show or in the official comics or books that contradicts the possibility of the three of them having a candy store together.

Agreed, though, I think I told you once how I appproched it

Oh dear, is Sugarcube Corner going to go out of business? Maybe they should see if this Manehatten bakery wants a local franchise partner.

She pulled the pointer away and looked at her class. “Today, Burger Princess has restaurants in Fillydelphia, Manehattan, the Crystal Empire, Canterlot and even in Appleloosa, where it sells exclusive burgers with a local flair. Another example of a popular, new fast food chain is McAlicorns, which just opened for business in the Crystal Empire.” A smirk played around her lips. “You see that Princess Twilight has been quite the inspiration for fast food restaurants.”

Burger King and McDonalds? :rainbowlaugh:
