Harry Potter World Foods That Are Straight From The Books

When wandering through the twisting alleys and grand buildings of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you can just tell which guests are the true Potterheads. Usually dressed in some sort of House colors and brandishing a wand, they have an air about them that screams, “I basically live here.” They’re the ones who can tell you exactly which bits the park took right from the books, and which parts they had some creative liberties with, especially when it comes to food. Here are six Wizarding World foods that are straight from the books!

Pumpkin Juice

Location: Leaky Cauldron

Why You Need To Try It: Pumpkin Juice is extremely popular in the Wizarding World and is referenced several times in the books. One of the more memorable moments is when Harry spat out the foul-tasting Skele-Gro and Madam Pomfrey exclaimed, “What did you expect, pumpkin juice?”

Chocolate Frogs

Location: Honeydukes

Why You Need To Try It: Thankfully these solid milk chocolate candies won’t hop away, and you still get the chance to collect the unique cards underneath.


Location: Kiosks around the park

Why You Need To Try It: The signature drink can be found all over the Wizarding World park and in many forms. Frozen, blended, and even hot during the colder months! You can also find Butterbeer flavored ice cream in Diagon Alley.

Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans

Location: Honeydukes

Why You Need To Try It: Another classic treat from the books, magical and muggle kids alike can attest to the absolute regret one is filled with when unfortunately coming across a vomit flavored bean. Pro tip: the red ones are not always the best.

Cauldron Cakes

Location: Honeydukes

Why You Need To Try It: Long-time fans will remember these treats from Ron and Harry’s very first trip on the Hogwarts Express. This chocolate sponge cake is topped with “fiery” frosting and comes in a keepsake cauldron.

Hagrid’s Rock Cakes

Location: Leaky Cauldron

Why You Need To Try It: Hagrid isn’t known as a great cook or a great baker for that matter. His rock cakes don’t go over well in the books, but ones that you can get at the Leaky Cauldron are decidedly more delicious.
