butterbeer-m&ms

Potter-heads will flock toward anything that’s even remotely Harry Potter-based, so expect these new Butterscotch M&M’s to be in the hands of every magician in training.

The Halloween themed “White BOO-tterscotch” which has been described as Butterbeer in candy form, will be sold exclusively at Target this fall, and Harry Potter fans are already buying into the hype.

I know what you’re thinking, how does anyone know what a made-up drink, inspired by a wizarding book tastes like? The books describe it as “a little bit less-sickly butterscotch,” and Universal Studios found a way to make that taste happen at its parks, so that’s probably what everyone is going crazy about.

All I know is that Target is going to be filled with strange people this fall. Well, more strange people.

Harry Potter fans are counting down the days until Universal Studios Orlando opens Diagon Alley at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter July 8. The theme park is based on the works of J.K. Rowlings’ Harry Potter books and subsequent movies and is also a Mecca for worldwide Potter fans to visit and enjoy.

Among the attractions is the Leaky Cauldron, a famous eatery within the novels and what looks to be a pretty magical restaurant soon to hit Orlando. Universal Studios released a menu of options from the Leaky Cauldron. Among the choices are Ploughman’s (English cheeses, bread, apple beet salad and a Scotch egg), Cottage Pie and Beef, Lamb & Guinness Stew in a bread bowl.

Other dishes include Bangers and Mash, Fisherman’s Pie, Fish and Chips and exclusive beers including Wizards Brew and Dragon Scales (it is a pub, after all). Fan-favorite beverages like Pumpkin Juice and Butterbeer will also be available.

From what we’ve seen so far, the Leaky Cauldron has us salivating. It doesn’t seem to need an excitement charm to get our attention. Now to book that ticket to Florida. Sadly, our brooms don’t fly.
