Ever watched any of the Harry Potter movies and inadvertently started drooling at all the delicious, magical foods on screen?
I remember reading the books as a kid and licking my lips at descriptions of cauldron cakes and chocolate frogs.
Sadly, Muggle food and drink just doesn’t sound as fun as the food and drink of the Potterverse. I mean, lots of us eat regular chocolate and a few of us indulge in regular frogs, but when was the last time you've seen someone eating a living, hopping chocolate frog on a subway?
Have you ever tried ordering a Butterbeer at your local bar and been sadly disappointed when you had to settle for a Natty Light? Personally, I’ve wished I could pick up items like Fizzing Whizbees and Liquorice Wands at regular grocery stores more times than I’d like to admit.
Unfortunately, most of these mouthwatering, magical treats aren’t readily available in the Muggle world (you can, however, pick up un-magical versions of these treats at Harry Potter World and other Harry Potter-themed locations).
Not the same, not the same.
But don’t despair. You can now immerse yourself in the varied cuisines of the Potterverse in less than three minutes.
That’s right, Potterheads. You get to watch all the food scenes in Harry Potter in a short video (below), which was compiled by the people at Digg to celebrate the Harry Potter series’ 20th anniversary (feel old yet?), and it is glorious.
“We found all of the ways that food acts as a force for good in the Potterverse,” reads the Digg caption to the video. “From hopping chocolate frogs to snacks that make your face inflate, food is the tastiest ally to our heroes.”
The video, cleverly titled “Noms In The Potterverse,” includes all the magically delicious food moments in the series, starting with a scene from “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,” which is based on the first book in the series published in 1997.
Who can forget the scene where Harry and Ron feast on magical treats from the Honeydukes’ trolley on their first train to Hogwarts?
Forget “unicorn food” and golden pizzas, this is real food magic.
