Top Ten Tuesday: Wizarding World Foods I'd Like To Try


Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!  This week's topic is Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books, but I'm narrowing it down to one series - Harry Potter from J.K. Rowling, sweets mostly.  By the way, I've actually made some things from The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook, and some of them turned out really well.  I've also tried some of the tie in sweets as well - like Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans from Jelly Belly and the Chocolate Frogs which were something like Nestle's Crunch bars.


Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans - Yes, even though there are gross flavors!


Butterbeer - How could anyone pass up the opportunity to try this?


Cauldron Cakes - I always have thought that these would be something like chocolate lava cakes - delicious!


Chocolate Frogs - Just have to be careful when opening the package - and you'll have a famous witch and wizard card collection, too!


Fred and George's Skiving Snackbox - Maybe just the once...


An Ice Cream Sundae from Florian Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour - Ice cream is one of my favorite deserts, so how could I pass this up.


Petunia Dursley's Violet Pudding - You have to admit that it does look like a masterpiece.


Pumpkin Juice - I've always wondered how pumpkin juice is supposed to taste.


Pumpkin Pasties - I've actually made this one from that cookbook and they turned out really well - even got some compliments when I took them to a family get together!


Treacle tart - This is Harry's favorite desert - and I have never tried it before.  I don't even really know what it's supposed to taste like for sure - I've heard it's supposed to be something like shoo-fly pie or maybe pecan pie minus the pecans.  One of these days...!


What fictional foods would you love to try?  Have you made any of these, or had the opportunity to try them at the theme park in Orlando before?  As always thanks for visiting my blog, and perhaps even commenting down below!

  5. I have the unofficial harry potter cookbook as well! I made the pumpkin pasties too haha, they were soooo good! Thankfully we have the harry potter wizarding world at universal studios to go to for stuff like chocolate frogs (even though it's just chocolate that's molded to look like a frog lol), pumpkin juice (which my sister has had and liked it but found it too sweet), butterbeer (OHMYGOD I LOVE IT SO MUCH), and bertie bott's every flavour beans.

  7. Petunia must be a fantastic cook for her son to get as large as he did.
    As for the Treacle tart, treacle is like molasses.

  8. I love this list! We tried some of the treats at Universal Studios in California but they didn't have Florean's (it's in the Florida park).

  9. YES! I would try all of these. I’d love to eat the candy in Harry Potter. I bet that would be the best candy ever.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  10. I love Nestle Crunch bars so if chocolate frogs taste like those, I'm in. But wait... they're alive??

    Pumpkin juice? Hmmm I wonder...

  11. I just saw the Unofficial HP Cookbook and was so tempted. Pumpkin Pasties sounds delicious. Now I'm craving sweets and it's so late!

  12. This is a tasty sounding list. Great idea to break down specific HP dishes we all crave.

  13. Oh my goodness, so many awesome treats! Those cauldron cakes, the pumpkin pasties... yum! Funnily enough, my sister and I were just talking about the them park over the weekend and how it's weird we've never gone since we live so close!

    1. I live so far away - I'm jealous that you live pretty close even if you haven't been there. :)

    1. There are only a few in the series that don't sound appetizing! :)

  15. Harry Potter food is the best in the world!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yep, I'm jumping on the cauldron cakes bandwagon too! But I think I'll skip the pumpkin juice. That doesn't too appetizing to me :)

  17. Harry Potter food has always looked delish :') I've had Butterbeer at Harry Potter world but it's probably not like the real deal. AND PUMPKIN JUICE?? Pumpkins alone are pretty gross, but they might put spices and stuff?? I'VE ALWAYS WONDERED!!

  20. I would love to try a lot of the Harry Potter treats especially those Cauldron Cakes which look great! If the recipes are simple, I'd love to give these a go!

  21. The violet pudding does look really good.

  23. At our last Girl Scout's meeting, one of the leaders had everyone taste one of those jelly beans. My daughter was lucky enough to get toothpaste flavored, but I got moldy cheese. At least I didn't get barf. Never again!

    I've had the Butterbeer at Universal Studios in Hollywood and love it maybe a little too much. It's really sweet, but so good! I wasn't as taken with the their pumpkin juice though.

    Cauldron Cakes do look good!

    Great topic! You've made me hungry for dessert now. LOL Have a great week.

    1. I've had the toothpaste too, but I've never gotten moldy cheese! I have had both vomit and ear wax - gross!

      I don't blame you - they sound so good!

  24. I've spied butter beer on lots of lists this week. But I will say, I'd pick a chocolate lava cake! That sounds YUMMY!!

    Thanks, as always, for visiting Finding Wonderland, Lauren. :)
