10 Harry Potter-inspired snacks fans can find in muggle stores

1 of 2

Muggles looking for snacks from the Harry Potter universe don’t need to travel all the way to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to find them.

If there’s one thing J.K. Rowling excels at writing about, it’s food. Throughout the course of her Harry Potter series, Rowling describes a number of treats—both real and made up—that have become iconic among her fanbase. And many of the snacks she describes can even be found at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme parks.

But muggles looking to try Harry Potter-inspired treats don’t need to travel all the way to the Wizarding World to do so. Retailers and candy companies sell a number of products based off of the food from Rowling’s universe, and they usually taste just as good as what’s being sold in the theme parks.

These 10 Harry Potter snacks are some of our favorites, and they can all be easily found in the muggle world.

Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans

Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans are one of the most popular candies from the Wizarding World, and Harry and his friends frequently mention them in the books. Even Dumbledore famously tries Bertie Bott’s, only to discover that the jelly bean he believed to be toffee is actually ear wax.

Jelly Belly makes Bertie Bott’s, selling them online and in stores like Party City and Barnes and Noble. They come in small boxes with a key on the back, explaining which jelly bean flavors are which. And yes, Jelly Belly does include the more unusual flavors—including Booger and Vomit. Those are the ones you might want to put aside to prank your friends with.

Chocolate Frogs

Jelly Belly’s Harry Potter line also produces Chocolate Frogs, another well-known treat from Rowling’s world. In the books, the chocolate frogs can jump and walk on their own, making them slightly difficult to actually eat. Luckily, Jelly Belly’s frogs are stationary—and they have a delicious crispy layer inside, similar to that of a Nestlé Crunch bar.

The Chocolate Frogs also come with a famous wizard card, just like they do in the books. Fans can collect the cards, which feature moving images of characters like Dumbledore and McGonagall. And the need to collect them all is just another reason to keep eating Chocolate Frogs, right?

Jelly Slugs

Jelly Slugs are another addition to the Jelly Belly line, though they’re only mentioned a few times throughout the Harry Potter books. They make a perfect treat for fans who are in the mood for gummy candies but still looking to immerse themselves in the Harry Potter world. Anyone can eat gummy bears and worms, but it takes a real witch or wizard to devour some gummy slugs. You can find Jelly Slugs on the popular muggle site, Amazon.


Harry Potter fans don’t need to visit Universal Studios to try Butterbeer. The Flying Cauldron sells its own bottled version of the popular wizard drink, calling it Butterscotch Beer instead of straight-up Butterbeer.

The fizzy concoction is essentially just cream soda with butterscotch flavoring, and a cold bottle will hit the spot on a warm day. Sadly, they haven’t bottled a warm version of the drink yet, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed.

Acid Pops

Williams Sonoma now sells Acid Pops, another candy mentioned several times over the course of the Harry Potter series. Thankfully, these lollipops are slightly safer to eat than the ones offered in Harry’s world, and they look way cuter to put out in your home. Of course, fans who love sour and fruity flavors might find themselves refilling the jar pretty often if they’re on display.
