Honeydukes at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is one of my favorite places in Hogmeade at Univarsal Islands of Adventure. If you are a Harry Potter fan then you know what Honeydukes is. If you don’t then read on to find out! Back in Hogsmeade at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter sits the cutest most adorable candy shop right from the story of Harry Potter. I recently visited Universal Orlando resort and fell in love with Honeydukes. It is so cute from the outside and was filled with so much character that I was actually unsure if it was even an operational store, but you can go in and purchase your own Potter candies. I actually trudged through the rain and went back to the park a second time just to visit this quaint little hideaway filled with lovely little confections. I had to bring goodies home for all the Harry Potter fans in my life and the shop was too adorable to miss.
I spent a half hour in the shop walking around looking at all the delicious treats available for purchase. There were sugar straws, every flavor beans from Bertie Botts, and of course chocolate frogs! Wizarding World of Harry Potter fans everywhere deserve to have their very own chocolate frog. This was the first item on my list of things to purchase. The chocolate frogs are complete with a unique wizard card, just like in the story and once I checked out and had the chance to open my goodies I discovered a Rowena Ravenclaw wizard card.
The shop is done up in antique white tiles and has an old world feel when you look at it – I felt like I had been transported right to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Hogsmeade as I wandered around the store and selected my candies. The special treats are not cheap, but you can purchase a chocolate frog for around $10. It was fun to go in and experience it and there were some free samples as well. So whether you go in to purchase, or to just see it for yourself, it is worth the visit to look around. Harry Potter fans from all walks will enjoy a trip into this adorable confectionary filled with character and love form the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
