A decent episode, though nothing particularly special.
I absolutely adore the first act, it's hilarious and flat-out fun. Then the episode gets bogged down with the real plot, mostly a parody of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, but one that soon devolves into something more sinister. It's very enjoyable and very funny, though less funny that your average season 1 episode once you get into acts 2 and 3.
Good, but not great (by Futurama's standards).

"Fry and the Slurm Factory" starts off as an obvious parody of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", but turns sinister once Fry, Leela and Bender discover the horrific secret of Slurm -- specifically, that it's the waste product of a wormlike creature known as a Slurm Queen. It's not groundbreaking stuff, but it provides plenty of laughs; the funniest gags include the fact that the winning contest token is a bottle cap inside a *can* of Slurm, the Soylent Cola joke ('it varies from person to person'), and Fry taking several swigs of Slurm immediately *after* discovering the secret.
