Treats From The Wizarding World23:55
If you haven't already heard, I recently took a trip into the world of Harry Potter, and snuck back these magical treats and tasty favourites to try. I thought I'd give you my opinion so you know what to buy next time you're taking the train to or from Hogwarts. You can click here to read about my trip if you haven't already. These are available from The Making of Harry Potter studio tour gift shop or online here.
1. Chocolate Wand
2. Fudge Flies
3. Chocolate Frog
The trading cards are great quality, and I love that the hologram makes the characters look very 3D. There is an option of 5 different cards consisting of; Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw and Albus Dumbledore. My boyfriend received Dumbledore in his pack and I got Salazar Slytherine, given the choices I think I would prefer Dumbledore and Slytherine would be my second choice, so I'm happy. I do wish that they would contain a bigger variety, especially of some of the most popular characters. I would love to have one of Bellatrix Lestrange. Overall, I like that this one gives you a great tasty, long lasting treat but also contains a little souvenir for you to keep. If you're lucky hopefully you'll get your favourite house.
4. Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans
Feeling risky? If you haven't tried the Bean Boozled challenge yet, then this would be a rather good twist (YouTube video anyone?) This pack contains 170g worth of 20 different flavoured jelly beans for £8.95. Ranging from delicious banana, marshmallow and tutti-frutti to ear wax, dirt and rotten egg, the only one from the movie in the pack is Bogie. This is a risky one to play with a 50% chance of getting a very bad tasting one. I have tried a few of these already, I think I got banana, sausage, marshmallow and earwax, sausage was a very weird taste for a jelly bean. However, the good flavours are very delicious and I am a big fan of jelly beans. You get quite a lot in the pack, and I think I might keep these to share with my boyfriend so he can experience some of the gross ones with me. Look out for the bogie ones.
That's all the treats I purchased from the Harry Potter studio tour in London. I hope you enjoyed this post and pick up some of these for yourself or a friend if you go. Don't forget to check out my post on the tour here if you haven't already. April
