Honeydukes in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade
Honeydukes Candy List, Prices, Pics, and Reviews
What Is Honeydukes?
Honeydukes is a candy store in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Orlando. It is designed to look like the Honeydukes sweetshop in the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban movie. The store has peppermint green shelves and a cotton-candy pink spiral staircase (that you can't climb).
Honeydukes was first mentioned in the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban book. Many of the candies in the Honeydukes store in Orlando were inspired by candies specifically mentioned in the book, such as Chocolate Frogs, Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, Fudge Flies, Sugar Quills, Chocoballs, Acid Pops, etc.
Other candies were inspired by the candies featured in the movies. For example, the White Chocolate Skulls in the Honeydukes store in Orlando were modeled on the candy skulls seen in the Honeydukes scene in the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban film. These Day of the Dead inspired skeletons were created by the film's prop department as a nod to director Alfonso Cuarón’s Mexican heritage.
Some of the other candy is more generic. For example, you can buy apple rings, peach rings, orange slices, gummy worms, and other candies that can be purchased at almost any candy store. The only thing that is special about them is that they come in Honeydukes packaging.
Honeydukes is located in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade in Islands of Adventure.

The Best and Worst Candy at Honeydukes
We haven't tried all of the candy at Honeydukes, but we have tried quite a bit of it. In general, we think the candy packaging is really cool, but the candy itself is a bit overpriced based on the quality of most items. For example, a small box of jelly beans or a Chocolate Frog will cost you $10.95 each.
The Chocolate Frog comes in a nifty container that was inspired by the packaging seen in the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone movie. The Chocolate Frog inside of the packaging is rather large, weighing in at 5.3 ounces of solid chocolate - and we mean solid. These frogs are hard as rocks and difficult to bite into or cut with a knife! The chocolate is also poor quality; it tastes cheap and a little chalky.
But as Ron Weasley says in the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone movie, "it's the cards that you want." Each Chocolate Frog comes with a famous witch or wizard card. Although there have been special cards made for special events, such as the Celebration of Harry Potter, your card will most likely feature one of the four founders of Hogwarts: Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw, or Salazar Slytherin.
The Chocolate Frogs aren't the only sweet treat at Honeydukes that suffers from poor quality chocolate. The Chocolate Wands, Chocolate Cauldron, Fudge Flies, U-No-Poo, and Exploding Bon Bons could all be greatly improved if the chocolate tasted better. Out of all of the packaged chocolate items, the Peppermint Toads probably taste the best. They are covered in dark chocolate and have a creamy minty center.
Some of the candies that we think do taste okay are just that: okay. There's really nothing special about them. In other words, we don’t crave these candies between visits. This includes the Salt Water Taffy, Jelly Slugs, Acid Pops, Sugar Quills, Blood Pops and Wine Gums.
The best (or at least the most interesting) candy is the Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans. Some of these jelly beans are tasty (marshmallow, banana, tutti-fruiti, etc.); some are just weird (sausage, black pepper, green grass, etc.); and some are downright gross and may need to be spit out rather than swallowed (bogey, vomit, dirt, etc.). We strongly recommend avoiding the vomit one.
Our favorite treats at Honeydukes can be found in the glass case near the register. We are particularly fond of the Cauldron Cake, which is made with six kinds of chocolate. (Note: The Cauldron Cake has changed. The new Cauldron Cake is more like a traditional cupcake. However, it is served in a silicone cauldron that can be kept as a souvenir and reused to bake other treats).
Shopping at Honeydukes
Honeydukes is a fun store to visit. We recommend going in to look around even if you don’t plan on buying anything. However, you should know that this store can get really busy. Also, space is very tight. Getting around in a wheelchair or with a group of kids can be especially difficult on a crowded day. If you want to avoid the crowd, try shopping very early in the morning (right after the store opens). If you have an interactive wand, you can cast the Revelio spell on the Chocolate Frog box in the Honeydukes window (from the exterior of Honeydukes). The box will open to reveal a Chocolate Frog that croaks three times.
If you like Honeydukes, you may also want to visit Sugarplum’s Sweet Shop in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida. This store opened in February of 2016. It sells many of the same items as well as a few other things that you can't find in Honeydukes. Another place to find Harry Potter inspired candy is Weasley's Wizard Wheezes (also in Diagon Alley), which sells U-No-Poo and Skiving Snackboxes, the latter of which includes Fever Fudge, Puking Pastilles, Fainting Fancies, and Nosebleed Nougat.
