10 Must-Try Snacks and Drinks at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (That Are Way Better Than Butterbeer!)

Are you planning a visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando? With its magical atmosphere and thrilling rides, it’s no wonder why this is one of the most popular destinations for Harry Potter fans all around the world. But besides the must-do activities like riding the Hogwarts Express or getting a wand from Ollivanders, there’s one thing that most visitors can’t wait to try: Butterbeer.

But before you join the long lines for this iconic butterscotch-flavored drink, let me introduce you to some other delicious treats that are just as magical (if not more!) as Butterbeer. From unique drinks to mouth-watering sweets, I’m here to show you 10 must-try snacks and drinks at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter that are way better than Butterbeer.

1) Pumpkin Juice Fizz

Let’s start with something that will cool off your thirst in the hot Florida weather. Pumpkin Juice Fizz is a combination of apple cider, cinnamon, and pumpkin flavors with a splash of soda water to give it a refreshing fizz. This drink is perfect for those who find Butterbeer too sweet.

2) Fizzing Whizzbees

For all chocoholics out there, this one is for you. Fizzing Whizzbees are milk chocolates with strawberry pop rocks inside, giving it a unique crunch and flavor that will make you feel like you’re in the wizarding world. Plus, the packaging is adorable and makes for a great souvenir.

3) Butterbeer Caramel

You’ve tried Butterbeer in its various forms, including frozen, hot, ice cream, and fudge. Now it’s time to try it in caramel form! This new addition to the park is available only for a limited time and brings a whole new level of sweetness to your favorite Harry Potter caramel candy.

4) Elixir of Refreshment

If you’re feeling adventurous, head to the Hogs head Pub and try the Elixir of Refreshment, a mix of fruit juices and coconut water served in a mysterious-looking bottle. This drink may not be as popular as Butterbeer, but it’s definitely worth a try.

5) Tounge-tying Lemon Squash and Fishy Green Ale

Don’t worry, these drinks don’t actually contain any fish or tongues. The Tounge-Tying Lemon Squash is a refreshing lemonade with a twist, thanks to its sour syrup and tongue-twisting straw. And the Fishy Green Ale is a minty green drink with blueberry flavoring and edible fish eggs on top.

6) Honeydukes’ Fizzing Whizzbees

Yes, you can get Fizzing Whizzbees at Honeydukes in Hogsmeade too, but this version is different. These honey-flavored candies are shaped like little bumblebees and have the same strawberry pop rocks inside. Perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth.

7) Chocolate Frogs

Chocolate Frogs may be one of the most iconic Harry Potter treats, but they’re still worth mentioning for those who haven’t tried them yet. These milk chocolate frogs come with collectible wizard cards inside, making them a fun souvenir for any Harry Potter fan.

8) Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream

When it comes to ice cream at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, there’s no better place than Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor in Diagon Alley. With flavors like Butterbeer, Earl Grey and Lavender, and Chocolate Chili, you’ll have a hard time deciding which one to try (but trust me, they’re all delicious).

9) Butterbeer Soft Serve Ice Cream

As mentioned before, Butterbeer comes in many forms, including soft serve. And let me tell you, it might just be better than the original drink. The butterbeer flavor is more subtle in the soft serve, making it less sweet but equally tasty.

10) Chocolate Chili Ice Cream Sundae

Last but not least, we have another ice cream treat from Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor. This Chocolate Chili Ice Cream Sundae has a scoop of chocolate chili ice cream, a sprinkle of hot chocolate shavings, and a swirl of whipped cream. It may sound unusual, but the combination of spicy and sweet is surprisingly delicious.

There you have it, 10 must-try snacks and drinks at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter that are way better than Butterbeer (in my opinion). Of course, you can’t skip the iconic drink altogether, but why not spice up your visit with some unique treats? Whether you prefer sweet or savory, there’s something for everyone at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. So next time you visit, be sure to venture beyond Butterbeer and try some of these magical treats. You won’t be disappointed!
