Universal Studios Hollywood opened The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter in April of 2016. And it has been a HUGE success and joyful place for people to go since that day! People are raving over it! They go again and again and again. My family and I have gone two days, and we are already talking about going back.
One of the things that makes it so inviting is that it is so REAL! The buildings, the people, THE FOOD! Oh the FOOD! Okay, honestly, OH THE SUGARY SWEETS! You can NOT go somewhere as special and amazing as Universal Studios Hollywood, The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter and not try the treats!
First off, the place to go for sweet treats in Harry Potter World is, of course, Honeydukes! A popular place in both the books and the movies. It is amazing inside this little shop. There are so many things from the movies, things that are iconic and you would recognize right off.
Puking Pestils, Chocolate Wands, Sugar Mice, Chocolate Frogs (complete with Wizard Cards), Pumpkin Juice, and so much more! And of course, Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Bean. Yum, earwax. LOL! But here were some really cheap, but super cute treats to share or to keep for yourself. No melt ice cream was there, along with chocolate cauldrons and tons of other things mentioned in the books. It was glorious! They even had Pigmy Puffs. Oh! How I wanted a Pigmy Puff!
There were even treats that would be SUPER easy to pack and take home for a special treat later or to give to loved ones and friends. Things that were really indicative of the Harry Potter World.
But the treat the my family bought and shared were the famous FIZZING WIZZBEES! And we bought those because of the books we have read pertaining to Harry Potter! Have you read ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them‘? Inside the book it actually tells you how the magic gets into the candy in Harry’s world. Check this out…but it MIGHT gross you out a bit….BEWARE!
First, let me talk about this funny book. Like I said, it is about magic beasts, but it has comments from Harry, Ron, and Hermione all the way through it. It is like an on going conversation between the three about what to use in pranks and what they will NEVER eat again…
It is actually really cute, educational, and comical. Highly recommend this read! Just click on the pictures above for more information!
But the Fizzing Wizzbees were amazing! In our Muggle world, we might equate it with chocolate covered pop-rocks. But it is BETTER than pop-rocks! You HAVE to try these! They are fun to eat. You take a bite and then about 30 seconds later, that fizzing and popping starts. It really is a strange sensation.
