New Harry Potter Candy Coming From Jelly Belly This Fall
Who doesn’t want to eat like Harry Potter? The fanciful world of everyone’s favorite boy-who-lived is filled with scrumptious treats unlike anything we have here in the Muggle world. There are Skiving Snackboxes that will get you out of the most difficult potions exams, creamy cauldron cakes, and those infamous hopping chocolate frogs. Just in time for the 20th anniversary of the American release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Jelly Belly is making it a little easier to eat like you’re a true Gryffindor with new Harry Potter-themed treats.
According to a press release, Jelly Belly will release four new candies inspired by Potter on October 1.
This is a real back-to-school line, seemingly inspired by life at Hogwarts. For instance, you can represent your house with chocolate house crests, molded with milk chocolate and crisp rice.
And of course, every wizard student needs a pet, which you can relive with gummi creatures and chocolate creatures. The gummies come in four flavor combinations (cherry/lime, cherry/blueberry, blueberry/lime, and lime/orange) and are inspired by five fantastic Harry Potter beasts: Fang, Fluffy, Buckbeak, Hedwig, and Aragog. Meanwhile, the milk chocolate creatures are packed with crisp rice and shaped like Aragog, Crookshanks, Fang, Fluffy, Hedwig, or a Thestral, and they come with a collectable sticker.
The most exciting new Harry Potter items are the chocolate wands. These 1.5-ounce cocoa wands are candy replicas of the wands used by Harry Potter, Albus Dumbledore, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley in the series. And because a wand is useless if you don’t know what to do with it, it comes with a sheet of spells. Let’s just hope it tells you how to pronounce “wingardium leviosa” correctly!
Of course, these four new products aren’t the first time Jelly Belly has created Harry Potter-inspired treats. You can already buy Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, chocolate frogs, sugar quills, and jelly slugs, among other Potter candies and treats. But if you’re looking for magical creations from our own world, we recommend stopping by the best chocolate shop in your state.
