Honeydukes Sweetshop: The Reason for My Root Canal

So sweet!

What pops into your brain when you think about Harry Potter? Is it places like the Burrow or the Leaky Cauldron? How about Molly Weasley’s magical self-knitting needles? How about Hippogriffs, Dragons, or another one of Rowling’s magical beaties? Or are you more a sports buff getting rowdy at a Quidditch match? Me, I’m all about the food. I know, I know, I’m a fat kid. But how can I not be? With all the candies in Honeydukes, the butterbeer at the Three Broomsticks, and Great Hall meals that are off the chain, it’s hard to get my mind off the deliciousness.

I think I've got a problem with butterbeer.

When my wife and I went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter last March I spent an unhealthy amount of time in Honeydukes Sweet Shop. It’s there I learned that chocolate frogs and Every Flavor Beans do not count as an entire meal. Still, good times. This picture of me with a frosty butterbeer should be proof enough of that.

Which part of the Potterverse is your favorite?

  1. So jealous! I am desperate to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I’m a nerd to the core so my favorite Potterverse stuff is wand lore and the different academic disciplines. I’d be a total Hermione time-turning it up to fit in all the subjects.

    • Holy crap, you have got to go! The place literally feels like walking through Hogsmeade–the movie version at least. The only thing that feels out of place is the 80 degree weather in March. But hey, still pretty cool.
