Harry Potter Bertie Botts Beans

One of the most popular and memorable Harry Potter Candy Treats is Bertie Botts Beans.

In the very first Harry Potter book, Harry discovers these sometimes sweet and sometimes gross jelly beans that have great disgusting names such as VOMIT, EARWAX, DIRT, BOOGER, and more!

This is a favorite among Harry Potter Candy fans, because just like everything else Harry Potter, these real jelly beans are just like the fictional kind.

Kids love nothing more than to gross themselves and each other out and will have lot of fun as they experiment with these unique flavors. Sure to bring lots of laughter!

There are quite a few Bertie Botts Beans you can choose from. See below for further descriptions:

Harry Potter Candy - Harry Potter Boxed Bertie Botts Beans

This boxed version of Bertie Botts Beans contains 20 mild and wild flavors, each in its own little pocket and a guide to help you tell them apart. This box set includes some of the more gross beans as described in the book such as: Vomit, Earwax, Dirt, Spinach, Grass, Booger, Sardine, and Black Pepper, plus more mellow ones such as: Watermelon, Toasted Marshmallow, and Grape Jelly.

This is one of the ones that will really gross out little and big Harry Potter fans the way it is supposed to!

Harry Potter Candy - Bertie Botts Beans 3oz Bag

These 3 ounce bags of Bertie Botts Beans also come with 20 great flavors, though they may be a little more on the mellow side.

Flavors include: Lemon, Pink Grapefruit, Peach, Cranberry and Apple, Cinnamon, Wild Cherry, Marshmallow, Pizza, Watermelon, Pear, Blueberry, Gravy, Fish, Cheese, Ketchup, Pepper, Sausage, Mashed Potatoes, Banana and Pepper.

These bags are great because they will look great on guests plates at a Harry Potter birthday party or make the perfect Harry Potter Birthday Party Favor for guests to take home.

You have the option of choosing either the red bags or the blue bags.

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..

      Dear Sarah,

      Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately the Harry Potter frogs are currently sold out on all 3 sites that I know of (I just checked myself). But I also know they get more of them quite frequently due to their popularity, so you might want to check again in a day or two. Sorry I couldn't be or more help.

      Thank you for this Hub! I plan on throwing a Harry Potter Themed Party soon and I really wanted to be able to serve treats from the books/movies, but sometimes it's hard to narrow down options and find stuff online. Your Hub just made it really easy for me. Much appreciated!

      Found these great Wizard candies handmade by a local chocolatier. Harry Potter fans would probably love them!

      I was at Universal Studios (Wizarding World of Harry Potter) during the last week of December 2010. Many of the hotels offer a pass to get into the park one hour prior to the rest of the public. We were in the park and allowed to enter Wizarding World of Harry Potter at 7 am. There were no lines for any of the rides or stores until 8 am when they started allowing the general public to enter.

      Thanks for the information. We love Harry Potter and have year long passes to Universal Studios. We still haven't been able to get to a store without a long line!

      Cool! I love Harry Potter! I discovered Harry when I was in the hospital with cancer. The books gave me a world I could escape to mentally when it was tough to be where I really was. I still love the books - and the movies are pretty good too!
