Jelly Belly launches new Harry Potter sweets - including a chocolate Voldemort wand

Manchester Evening News 2 months ago

Gourmet jelly bean company Jelly Belly has added new treats to its new Harry Potter-inspired range of confectionery.

Five new sweet treats have been added to the range, including a new chocolate wand and a sweet tin in the shape of the purple triple-decker Knight Bus.

Launching this autumn, the new items join a huge range of sweets already available, including the Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans.

The existing Harry Potter range includes chocolate figures in the shape of six different creatures from the wizarding world of Harry Potter - Crookshanks, Hedwig, Fluffy, a thestral, Fang and Aragog.

Potter fans can also already get their hands on gummy creatures, chocolate frogs and jelly slugs.

All the new items in the Jelly Belly Harry Potter-inspired collection are below.

Voldemort chocolate wand

Voldemort's chocolate wand

Jelly Belly already had wands in the shape of Harry's, Dumbledore's, Ron's and Hermione's.

But for those who quietly side with the bad guy, you can now take a bite of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named's wand.

The 42g solid chocolate prop comes in its own golden box and is packaged with a wizarding spell sheet.

It retails at £9.80 but is currently on sale for £9.50.

Hogwarts Express ticket

Hogwarts Express chocolate train ticket

This 42g bar of milk chocolate has been moulded with crisped rice into the shape of a train ticket.

Naturally, this isn't a ticket for a Northern Rail pacer - it's a ticket for the most magical train in fiction, the Hogwarts Express.

The ticket for the Platform 9 and three quarters train retails at £4.40.

Magical Sweets

Magical sweets

This bag of jelly sweets comes in all sorts of recognisably Potter-esque shapes.

The Deathly Hallows symbol, Hedwig, the Sorting Hat, and a lighning bolt have all been moulded from jelly sweets in a range of flavours that includes sour cherry, watermelon, banana and berry.

You can get the Magical Sweets for £3.

 

The Knight Bus tin

The Knight Bus sweet tin

The Knight Bus played a key role in the third Harry Potter book and film, a terrifyingly tall purple triple-decker bus that travelled around a breakneck speeds.

Jelly Belly's Knight Bus-shaped tin is an essential collectible for Potter fans, stuffed with 112g of the aforementioned magical sweets.

There's a coin slotted on the top, so it can be reused as a bus-shaped piggy bank.

The Knight Bus costs £16.

Hogwarts house crest tins

Hogwarts crest tins

Four new tins filled with flavoured jelly sweets cover all the houses of Hogwarts with their crest shapes.

Choose from cherry sweets in Gryffindor, green apple in Slytherin, blueberry in Ravenclaw or lemon in Hufflepuff.

You can but the tins in a combo for £18.

The full Harry Potter Jelly Belly collection will begin to appear on shelves this autumn, joining chocolate frogs, jelly slugs, and Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans.
