"Not wanting to miss anything, [Harry] got some of everything and paid the woman eleven silver Sickles and seven bronze Knuts" (101).
These are just a few of the many sweets and treats Rowling created:
- Acid Pops
- Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans
- Cauldron Cakes
- Chocolate Frogs
- Cockroach Clusters
- Drooble's Best Blowing Gum
- Fizzing Whizbees
- Licorice Wands
- Pumpkin Pasties
- Sugar Quills
- Ton-Tongue Toffee
I've always found Chocolate Frogs to be the most enticing, first of all because I love chocolate, but perhaps more importantly, the cards.
"Oh, of course, you wouldn't know - Chocolate Frogs had cards inside them, you know, to collect - famous witches and wizards. I've got about five hundred, but I haven't go Agrippa or Ptolemy." (Ron, 102)I grew up collecting Pokemon cards, Yu-Gi-Oh cards, and Harry Potter cards, so it's by no means a stretch to say I would be a collector of famous witch and wizard cards as well. Paired with my love for reading, I think I would really enjoy the snapshot description of the person's life, and to be honest, the moving picture would be pretty amazing.
So, what about you? Which wizarding treat would you be most interested in trying? Or what have you tried, if you've sampled some of the "muggle" versions?
