These New Harry Potter Candies Sound Simply Magical
Hang on to your hippogriff.
Hop aboard the Hogwarts Express, because Jelly Belly’s expanding their Harry Potter-themed candy line.
Wannabe witches and wizards will be able to enjoy a variety of book-inspired candies, including Chocolate Wands and Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans.
“Designed with Harry Potter enthusiasts in mind, seven new series-inspired chocolate and gummy sweets join the popular line,” the Jelly Belly Candy Company announced in a press release. “Additionally, the new Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans Gift Box offers fans of all ages the experience of selecting from an unusual collection of jelly bean flavors. Collectibles, fan favorites and more await inside this amazing collection of confections, now featuring refreshed packaging designs.”
This announcement comes as U.S. fans celebrate the series’ 20th birthday. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone hit American shelves in September 1998.
The detailed wands are enough to make superfans scream--chocolate replicas of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, and Albus Dumbledore’s wands are among the soon-to-be released products. If that’s not enough, a list of useful spells is included in each box. Harry and Dumbledore’s are sold separately, while Hermione and Ron’s come as a set.
The popular Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans will now be available in three packages: a gift box, a flip-top box, and an on-the-go bag. Eat at your own risk, though: Flavors include earwax and dirt.
Chocolate House Crests; Chocolate Creatures, which come with two mystery chocolates shaped like Harry Potter animals like Crookshanks, Fang, Fluffy, and Hedwig; Jelly Slugs; and gummy animals will also be available.
These products won’t be available until later this fall, but you can always make Harry Potter’s favorite dessert while you wait.
