Her mother chides her and she shoots back. She continues explaining about her chewing gum that she's been chewing it for three months solid and it's a world record, the record was beaten by her best friend Corniela. She puts the gum back and her mouth continues chewing after she finished her interview, Slugworth whispers in Violet's ear.
Later outside the chocolate factory Violet and her father are interviewed again, and she stretches the gum much to her father's annoyance. When Violet introduced herself to Willy Wonka and he welcomed her then she asked what kind of gum he has he replied charming. Then they come into the factory, Violet asked her father when she will get her chocolate her father tells her to take her coat first. Violet is the first to sign the contract and her father stops her and tells her not to sign anything. Violet signs the contract anyway and give the pen to Augustus. Wonka pulled a dead end hallway trick and it was crammed as they all struggled to get out.
As the group came into the chocolate Violet among with Veruca are seen pushing and shoving while walking down the stairs. Violet is enjoying the gum and Willy Wonka tosses the gummy bears off the tree then Violet catches one of them. Violet among with the others realize the river is chocolate. After Willy Wonka explained about the Oompa Loompas Veruca whined that she want's an Oompa Loompa and an annoyed Violet yells at Veruca to can it and calls her a nit.
After Augustus falls in the chocolate river and getting sucked into the pipe, Violet looks on and she says that he's blocking all the chocolate. After Augustus's demise they all go on the Wonkatania, when Wonka gives Mrs Teavee a rainbow drops she tells to suck them and spit them into seven different colors. Violet says spitting's a dirty habit while picking her nose and he responds that he knows a worst one. As the the group goes into the tunnel Violet gets scared as the boat trip gets scary. Then the boat stopped in front of the Inventing Room and they were warned by Wonka not to to touch anything. When Wonka placed his arm to test the pot and lets out a yelp and Violet asked if it's too hot he replied that it's far too cold. Violet was giving two everlasting gobstobbers much to Veruca's anger and complained that she wants another one. Violet shots back at her to stop squawking and call her a twit and they're told by Wonka that everbody has had one and one is enough for everbody.
Then Wonka shows them the comtraption, and the magic meal course dinner gum. Violet takes the gum, Wonka tried to warn about it but she ignored him and her father tells not to do anything stupid she lets out an exasperated sigh. She had a three course dinner while chewing the gum however, the dessert comes up and her face begins to change to purple which shocks her father and the others. Wonka says it always goes wrong when it comes to the dessert, then Violet begins to blow up like a blueberry and her father was furious at Wonka. The Oompa-Loompas rolled Violet to the juicing room after singing their song. Then she wasn't seen again afterwards.
