    Harry Potter Food - See The Movie and Plan a Feast!
    Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Gather your wizards and muggles and host a movie release party with food and drinks inspired by the Harry Potter series.

    Your menu could include:

    Butterbeer - Ginger-ale or Cream Soda with Butterscotch Syrup
    Bertie Bott's Every Flavored Beans - Jelly Beans
    Licorice Wands - Licorice Strands
    Cauldron Cakes - Mini Spice Cakes or Cupcakes
    Jelly Slugs - Jello Jigglers

    My 6 year old daughter had Butterbeer this morning at her Harry Potter themed Tennis & Swim camp. She just told me she did not like it! I need ideas for improvement!

    Let's see what you can come up with to win the House Cup!

    Whenever reading the Harry Potter books, I was always struck that it must take a tremendous amount of calories to be a wizard. And the source of the magic must preferentially burn sugar.

    I don't think the Hogwarts diet is meant for us Muggles.

    Wizards would not fare well in Massachusetts Schools:

    Thanks for this Eric!

    You are right Hogwarts meals and snacks would not pass the MA test or be good for us sedentary Muggles.

    Are you planning on seeing the movie this weekend?
