5 Things You Must Eat At The Wizardly World of Harry Potter
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is known for its attention to detail. From the cobblestone to the books on the shelves it’s as if you’ve walked right into J.K. Rowling’s books. The scene just wouldn’t be the same if the menu didn’t follow along as well. Here are five treats to try while you’re embracing your inner wizard.
If you’ve read every book or seen every movie, you won’t be disappointed by the famous butterbeer. This is the first stop you have to make on your adventure. The beverage is so delicious and important to fans that you can pretty much find it everywhere you turn. Butterbeer is non-alcoholic but that doesn’t mean you won’t be dying for more. The buttery, caramel, a cream soda-like drink is a refreshing thirst quencher on any hot day in the park.
If you trying to curb a sweet tooth, your one-stop-shop is Honeydukes. This candy store is home to several treats that appear in the Harry Potter books, including chocolate frogs and Fizzing whizbees. Most importantly, you can find Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans here. These are those quirky little treats that can have you smiling with delight or searching for a place to spit them out. That’s the fun part, these jelly beans have some wacky flavors, and you never know what you’re going to get. If that doesn’t sound appealing to you, you’ll just have to read the books.

The Great Feast
I solemnly swear this food is delicious. If you’re in Hogsmeade, check out the well-known Three Broomsticks restaurant. The authentic look and feel of the place will transport you to another world. The Great Feast is featured on the menu and it is enough to easily feed a family of four. The platter includes: smoked, rotisserie chicken legs, steaming corn on the cob, savory spareribs, and delectably roasted potatoes. You won’t go hungry with this platter.
The Leaky Cauldron
Stuff the family with some wizard themed meals at the authentic Leaky Cauldron. The Ploughman’s Platter is certainly for hungry families. It’s meant to be shared amongst a few people and there is plenty of variety to do so. Screaming comfort food, the platter includes a mountain of cheesy, crusty bread, oven roasted tomatoes, cornichon pickles, scotch eggs, green salad, and apple and beet salad. There is something in the mix for everyone. If you’re looking for more variety you could also try the platter of mini pies that comes with several options.
It’s always fun to try new items on the menu you when you’re out on an adventure. I suggest snacking on these cornish pastries if your stomach starts to growl. You can find these savory treats in Diagon Alley at The Hopping Pot, which is a walk-up counter. The pastries have a delicious flaky outside and savory meat, gravy, and vegetable surprise on the inside. These are the perfect snack to have between meals, rather than pop another piece of candy into your mouth.
Food like this can’t be found out in the real world. Enjoy the magic with these five tasty treats!
