The magical world of Harry Potter differs from other famous fantasy series. Rather than taking place in a completely fictional reality, the wizarding world is hidden within the Muggle world. As such, the scale of the Harry Potter series is much smaller, but there’s still plenty of substance.
J.K. Rowling loved to add copious amounts of detail to her world. Witches and wizards have their own political system, their own sports, their own history, their own books, their own school, and even their own sweets.
Indeed, the magical sweets and chocolates Harry encounters throughout his adventures are a microcosm for Rowling’s world-building in terms of depth. Harry is first introduced to a pile of unique brands and flavours during his debut trip on the Hogwarts Express but there are plenty more introduced throughout the series.
Every Harry Potter fan would love to gobble down these make-believe sweeties. And some – such as the iconic Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans – are even available to purchase and enjoy in the real world.
But how much can you remember about the magical sweets and chocolates in Harry Potter?
