Honeydukes Candy Shop at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

 

Photos galore!

Honeydukes sweet shop was one of my favorite spots to experience “off the pages” of the Harry Potter books on our recent trip since not only could you see every thing you read about or watched in the movies, but you could also literally taste the candy creations as well making it all the more 100% incredibly real.

It’s true the pages of Harry Potter literally come to life at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It was simply breathtaking to walk the streets of this world I’ve lived until now mostly in my imagination and of course via the big screen. Honeydukes is a MUST stop shop when at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The candy is not cheap, but it is delicious, beautiful to look at, and will instantly immerse you into the world of Potter.

The iconic candies and sweets at Honeydukes are basically exact replicas of those spotted in the movies and written about in the books. Our VIP tour guide Eliza told us that J.K. Rowling literally had her hands in everything when Universal developed this park which is way it is so “real” and honestly just perfect.

Chocolate Frogs – complete with trading cards and Every Flavor Beans were the kids picks to sample for taste & souvenirs.

Look how the packaging is exactly as it is in the movie. Kenzie’s trading card for her Chocolate Frogs ($9.95) turned out to be Slytherin. Yikes! She’s also sporting a sweet chocolate tooth in this photo! Our guide Eliza told us that there each of the Chocolate Frogs contain 1 of 4 trading cards and that each card features 1 of the founders of the 4 houses- Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin.

Here’s the display window for the Chocolate Frogs.

The Every Flavor Beans sell for $10.95 and truly there is every flavor – from earwax to earthworm included. Luckily there is a small guide to help you decipher which bean you might like or dislike. If you are brave you can just nibble away. Earthworm was NOT a hit with the kids and both spit it out.

Kenzie and Kyle found Honeydukes amazing as expected too. What kid doesn’t go gaga for a candy shop?

 

Here’s the back alley behind the shop- complete with a staff only entrance.

A few more delicious treats. My favorite to eat were the Peppermint Toads. Divinely delicious!!!!!

  1. Great photos…but now I want some chocolate. Since you had a guide, I am sure you did not have to wait long for anything. How did it seem for the other park guests?

    • Colleen Padilla says:

      The Universal Studios side was very empty and the Islands of Adventure side where Wizarding World is located was VERY crowded. Mostly the streets in Wizarding World and shops because it is so very narrow and small shops. 60 mins for the Forbidden Journey which has no fast pass for anyone. The other rides looked crowded but the fast pass was moving along. Definitely if I go back I’d stay at a resort 1 night to get fast pass included in my ticket as a way to save time/money.

  2. Colleen, this looks like so much fun! My kids adore Harry Potter, and I dream of one day hitting up The Wizarding World with them. I can only imagine the joy in their faces. Right now, though, playing wizard with chopstick wands will have to do.

    It looks like you enjoyed an incredible trip, and the peppermint toads look amazing. I love mint and chocolate together, so it would probably be my favorite, too. :)

    Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey doesn’t have Express Pass but there is a single rider line which will get you in much faster:) Staying onsite is an awesome idea too–there is a Harry Potter package available through the end of this year, complete with breakfast at Three Broomsticks! Yum!

    Oh my goodness that is so great!!! I’ve been wanting to go. My husband thinks I’m a nerd for loving it. But I can’t help it haha. Our toddler who will be 3 this year is fascinated with Harry Potter as well. This will definitely be a trip in the near future for us :)

    Great pictures!

    loved every minute of it. Harry Potters World looked and seemed so totally real. It does seem that staying in one of the hotels is definitely the way to go, if you are going at a busy time of the year. (which is most of the time)

    My family and I are DREAMING about visiting Universal Studios just for the Harry Potter experience. Loved your pics!
