If your Halloween costume is something from the depths of Hogwarts or Hogsmeade, you’ll want to kit yourself out with some edible treats (and tricks) that feel like they’re straight from Honeydukes, or maybe Zonko’s Joke Shop or Weasley & Weasley’s. What about a chocolate wand that you can snack on if you get hungry at the party?
Jelly Belly has just added a bunch of very-legit-lookin’ treats to its Aussie Harry Potter lolly range just in time for the witching hour, including Chocolate House Crests for each of the Hogwarts houses, Gummi Creatures like Fang, Fluffy, Buckbeak and Aragog (no thanks), and chocolate wands that look pretty bang on like the ones that chose Harry, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger and Albus Dumbledore.
Each chocolate wand comes with a spell-casting card so you can enchant or disarm your mates like a real wizard (they’re real, magic is real, do not @ me).
I mean you could absolutely get one of these and use it as a prop for your Halloween costume, but I’m also not guaranteeing that it’ll be in one piece when the night’s over. Someone is going to monch that wand, and no that’s not a euphemism.
Jelly Belly has also released a bigger gift box version of its Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, which has only the grot flavours like soap, black pepper, and dirt in them. What! A box of lollies that ONLY taste like pure regret? I mean finally someone is making a treat that’s actually a huge trick, but also extremely no thank you. No thank you very much. You can keep your vom flavoured jellybeans.
