1960s candy


Snickering Snickerdoodles

  • The classic No-Maj treat was brought to the school’s halls in the early 1900′s, but, of course, with a magical twist.  Once you take a bite of these scrumptious cookies, you won’t be able to stop giggling until the whole cookie is finished.  Good luck trying to stay quiet when sneaking a bite during class!

Popping Rocks

  • A spin on the popular No-Maj candy, these enchanted rock candies don’t just explode with flavor, but also with actual fireworks! As soon as these suckers begin to crackle, you can expect sparklers as bright as 4th of July fireworks to erupt from your mouth. And don’t try to close your mouth; they’ll just end up coming from your ears!

Ocean Water Taff

  • Chewing these salty treat will make you end up feeling like you took a swim with the fishes. With every bite, you’ll feel more and more like you’re at the shore, complete with a sunkissed tan and sand in your shoes! Eat at discretion, though. You don’t want to end up smelling like a fish!

Juicy Jackalope Jumpers

  • A delicious, sweet candy that have becoming increasingly popular amongst students in the last few years or so. Appearing as a small, circular-like gummy, each bite of this treat will make you leap with flavor; literally! Those who eat it will end up hopping around like bunnies from classroom to classroom. A good snack if you want to get to class early!

Skinwalker’s Surprise

  • First comprised by a particuarly devious Wampus student back in the 1960′s, this candy is perfect if you’re looking to prank you friends. Place a raw Skinwalker’s Surprise into a mix of another candy, and watch it camouflage in just like it’s namesake. When someone goes to eat it, they’ll be treated with an awfully, nasty taste in their mouths. Yuck!

Chick Pees

  • Disguised as the classic PEEP Chicks, these sweet treats look and taste exactly like the originals!  What’s the catch you ask?  The second the one enjoying the sweet treat gets even the simplest of a fright, the spell detects the jump in their heart rate and automatically makes them pee their pants. Perfect for the prankster within!

Boom Boom Balls

  • These treats are quite simply, really.  These balls of chocolate are absolutely delicious and safe to eat as one normally would.  Yet, if you ever find yourself in a jam and need to escape a sketchy situation (maybe you played a playful prank on Headmaster Hughes), just grab a ball and slam it to the ground.  Very similar to the classic smoke bomb, but instead of nasty smoke these leave yummy chocolate powder in their wake!

Mr. Who’s Wonder Sweets

  • Mr. Who’s Wonder Sweets were created by an Ilvermorny Alum who was obsessed with the No-Maj game of Guess Who (it’s also kinda ironic his last name happened to also be Who).  Each piece is wrapped individually.  When you unwrap your piece the wrapper will read a famous Witch or Wizard.  Once you pop the sweet treat in your mouth you automatically act and sound like the name on he wrapper and you won’t stop until someone guesses correctly. So gather your friends and play a few rounds with these delicious sweets!

Best German sweets: Kinder Country bars, consisting of light and crispy puffed rice with a creamy, milky filling. Kinder Chocolate (Kinder is German for “children”) is a brand of the Italian confectionery multinational Ferrero - but the Kinder line was developed and first produced at Ferrero Germany in Frankfurt in 1967 for the German market. A year later, it was also sold in Italy, before reaching other countries along the Mediterranean. I haven’t had a bad “Kinder” product. When in Germany, try them. :) Abroad, they may be found at your country’s local Amazon and specialty stores that import European products. More on German groceries:
