“Harry Potter” fans will be thrilled that there’s yet another way to get lost in the wizarding world just in time for Halloween.
Accio chocolate wand! That’s exactly the spell you’ll need to summon the latest candy from Jelly Belly this Halloween. The company is adding to their beloved Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor jelly beans and Chocolate Frog “Harry Potter” candy collection to bring you Chocolate Wands, Gummi Creatures and more Hogwarts-inspired sweets this Halloween.
The wands will be replicas of those Harry Potter, Albus Dumbledore, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley carry. So you’ll be able to choose the perfect chocolate wand to match your costume.
And whether you’re dressing up as one of the main characters or simply throwing a Hogwarts-themed bash, there are plenty of reasons for you to cast imaginary spells, battle fellow wizards and then devour these delicious chocolate wands when you’re done. Because who says you can’t play with your food!
We’ve got to say, these replicas look pretty true to the film, considering they’re made of pure chocolate-y goodness:
We’re guessing that when you hold it, you’ll feel a little something like this:
Jelly Belly will be launching the chocolate wands along with a series of other chocolate and gummy candy options.
They’re also releasing Chocolate Crests for each of the Hogwarts houses, Gummi Creatures that look like one of five magical creatures or pets from “Harry Potter,” and chocolate versions of those creepy creatures.
You’ll be able to shop these new treats starting Oct. 1 at retailers such as Target and Party City, so make sure you stock up in time for Halloween.

Or consider snagging a copy of “The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook: From Cauldron Cakes to Knickerbocker Glory—More Than 150 Magical Recipes for Muggles and Wizards” by Dinah Bucholz, a cookbook that will transform your kitchen into Hogwarts in no time at all.
Bucholz says she was inspired to write the book because she couldn’t help but notice that the descriptions of food in the Harry Potter series always made her hungry.
“I was always interested in the food in ‘Harry Potter’ just out of curiosity,” Bucholz told MuggleNet. “There is such good food described in there, and the feast sounds amazing. But I had no idea what the food was. I was wondering, ‘What in the world is treacle tart? It sounds so good.’ Or, ‘What is knickerbocker glory? What are these things?'”
