I tackled them-the six foods first found on the Honeydukes Express Cart on the Hogwarts Express. Certainly not a list that’s easy to just pop out, but here we go!
He had never had any money for candy with the Dursleys, and now that he had pockets rattling with gold and silver he was ready to buy as many Mars Bars as he could carry — but the woman didn’t have Mars Bars. What she did have were Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, Drooble’s Best Blowing Gum, Chocolate Frogs, Pumpkin Pasties, Cauldron Cakes, Licorice Wands, and a number of other strange things Harry had never seen in his life.

“A risk with every mouthful!” is Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Bean slogan. We made a homemade version and tackled the majority of the flavours first heard of on the Hogwarts Express.
A bluebell- coloured gum available in sugar-free crazyberry flavour. We couldn’t guarantee it would never loose its flavour, or make bubbles that wouldn’t pop for days, however this is what we thought crazyberry gum would taste like.
Probably inspired by a Monty Python sketch, Crunchy Frogs, Chocolate Frogs are made from 70% Croakoa that makes it act like a real frog. After trying a solid Chocolate Frog from The Making of Harry Potter, this is our attempt to make them more frog-like.
This is probably the most ‘normal’ food on the trolley. Pumpkin pasties is basically a pie with pumpkin filling. We made them into pumpkin shapes to up their cuteness factor.
I made two versions for cauldrons cakes–the first is inspired by the description in the book–can be bought in ‘a stack’ and were given as ‘a batch’. I also made a second version earlier on, when I couldn’t get the idea out of my head of a self saucing cake (in this case overflowing out of the ‘cauldron’).
A licorice wand is just that. A piece of licorice shaped like a wand. Figured these would be loved by underage wizards who weren’t yet allowed their own wands.
