The next adventure awaits! Off to somewhere a little closer to Hogwarts! Just down the cobblestone paved streets of the wizarding town in the shadow of the wonderful castle the students spend the year in. Hogsmeade has a certain charm to it as you walk down the streets. It's old timey and beautiful and even the streets are an adventure! Window shopping, people watching. It's just a fun place to be walking around. That is until the resident sweetshop catches your bright, excited eyes.
Honeydukes. It's the shop that kids and adults alike absolutely adore! Sweets line every shelf, adorn every window, and line every doorway! It's a sweet-astic dream come to life! As you walk in, you are greeted by the scents of many popular wizarding sweets like chocolate frogs, sugar quills, Bertie Bott's Every Falvour beans and so much more! The mingling scents of sweets make them hard to pinpoint, but if you know your sweets then it is fairly easy to pick out which smell belongs to which!
On this adventure, a little game was played! First, it was trivia of the famed sweetshop. The place was founded in 1641. The owner when Harry Potter was around was named Ambrosius Flume and his wife used to help out at the shop too. There is a not so secret secret passageway from the third floor of Hogwarts at a Gunhilda of Gorsemoor statue from the castle to the cellar of the sweetshop that includes a fun slide right after you go from the statue into the passageway. Honeydukes is the supplier of the sweet cart on the train. Lastly, they have an almost A-Z list of sweets. How cool is that?!
The second part of the game was to guess the flavor of what beans from a Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans carton you got in a small glass dish. There were 10 beans I had to guess first by looks. I guessed there were Cherry, Cheese, Earthworm, Green Apple, Ketchup, Pizza, Prawn, Sherry, Soap, and Vomit. I guessed all ten correct on looks. It isn't too hard when you look closely at them. I also had to eat them all. It was fun in the end. And I have a stomach of steel, so the gross ones didn't bother me much, making it fun to watch the patrons of the shop face's be all like "Wow how did she do that!" Although, they were pretty gross tasting. Anyway, after that I spoke to some of the shoppers to see how they liked it there!
Em Waterstone (Quibbler Editor)- "Yummy."
Mykal Stonewall (SoMe Team leader)- "I love Honeydukes with a passion!"
Kayte Savant- "I love it's wide selection of sweets ^-^"
Etched Yato- "I love them! I love anything sweet as well. So Honeydukes is always my go to place!"
Jacob Grabowski (Slytherin Head of House)- "Yum."
As you can see, it's a very yummy, popular place. So go and visit the land of your sweetest dreams on your next trip to Hogsmeade!
That is all for this adventure! Where should I go next?!
