Harry Potter Candy - Chocolate Frogs
The second most popular item when it comes to Harry Potter Candy is chocolate frogs. Chocolate frogs are mentioned often in the Harry Potter books throughout the entire series.
You have two different options when it comes to chocolate frogs.
You can purchase the already made Harry Potter Chocolate Crispy Frog. The benefit of the ready-made chocolate frogs is that they come with one of 24 collectible cards just like the chocolate frogs do in the Harry Potter books.
If you would like to save a little money however, you also have the option of making your own chocolate frogs by using a frog mold. The benefits to using the mold is that you can you make as many frogs as you want, as often as you desire.
Another benefit is that the mold could also be used to make lollipops, mold soap, plaster and cement if you would like to have a fun craft for the kids as well.
There are three different frog molds to choose from.
Harry Potter Candy - Drooble's Best Blowing Gum
In the Harry Potter books, Drooble's Best Blowing Gum is sold on the food trolley for two sickles and also at Honeydukes in Hogsmeade.
In the books, chewers are able to blow bluebell colored bubbles which will not pop for days.
While Hasbro's brand can't offer everlasting bubbles, it does offer a cotton candy flavored gum that turns the chewers mouth blue, which for kids is even more fun as they run around sticking their blue tongues out at each other.
Harry Potter Candy - Harry Potter Blood Pops
Another candy item mentioned in the books are Blood-flavored lollipops.
They too are sold in Honeydukes under the "Unusual Tastes" section. Ron and Hermoine consider buying one for Harry but Hermoine is under the impression they might only appeal to vampires.
In reality, Candy Crate makes a great strawberry flavored lollipop under the Harry Potter name called Blood Pops that will make the lollipop suckers tongue "blood" red.
Harry Potter Candy - Acid Pops
Ron mentions that when he was little, his brother Fred gave him an Acid Pop that burned a hole straight through his tongue.
Luckily the real thing doesn't do anything but taste good.
Real Harry Potter fans may also remember that "Acid Pops" was also a password used to gain entrance into Dumbledore's office at Hogwarts..
