Mediating the Stories of the Muggle and Wizarding Worlds

Candies and Treats


Candies and treats of various and asundry types play small but memorable roles in the Harry Potter series ~ from the chocolate frogs on the Hogwarts Express candy trolley, to Dumbledore’s earwax-flavored bean from Bertie Botts, to the Puking Pastilles from the arsenal of the Weasley twins. Many of these classic items are available.

  • Honeydukes at Wizarding World of Harry Potter. As of autumn 2012, a small selection of Honeyduke candy products are available on the Universal Studios website shop. [When I started this site (autumn 2010), I could not find any online sales Honeyduke candy products, so the main source was eBay, or in person at the Wizarding World in Orlando.]
  • Pre-Honeydukes Candies. To see what the pre-Honeydukes packages of Harry Potter candies look like, check out the Harry Potter page of Candy Warehouse. [This link no longer seems to be working, but I am leaving it here in case you want to investigate archives.] Please note that many of the items have been discontinued by the manufacturer, but the descriptions and images of items and packaging are still online at the time of this writing (December 2010). Some of these versions of candies from the world of Harry Potter may show up on eBay and perhaps elsewhere online.
