Reading hp and the half blood prince and then I get to the part where Bill gets attacked and has a scar and molly just jumps in saying “oh well I guess that’s the wedding cancelled” and all I think is fleur looking her dead in the eye and saying “I think the fuck not” just this girl is amazing don’t think she’s some stuck up bitch cause she’s just amazing and I love her
First introduction into chocolate for Harry after a life with the Dursleys. Harry's first birthday cake was chocolate. + Hagrid gave him a chocolate/raspberry ice cream at Fortescue's. ALSO CHOCOLATE FROGS EVERYWHERE. They are big plot point too! a sturdy introduction: 8/10
chamber of secrets:
Hermione savagely uses chocolate cake to trick Crabbe and Goyle. But, most importantly, if Dumbledore wasn't getting hot chocolate Colin Creevey would have probably died. proving again, chocolate saves lives. A steaming book for hot chocolate with 3 mentions. decent: 5/10
prisoner of azkaban:
absolute PEAK. A whooping 27 references. A chocolate reference every 9 pages! Honeydukes is introduced!!! "Hundreds of different kinds of chocolate in neat rows", Slabs and bars galore! + chocolate is canonly used as a remedy for sadness!! chocolate queen™, remus Lupin helps the cause with his generous handing out of chocolate. Also, Pomfrey even provided a boulder sized block, complete with a hammer to collect chunks, ingenious. EVEN THE MINISTER FOR MAGIC insisted on Harry having chocolate! -5 points because Harry says he's sick of chocolate ate the end. Yet, still a solid 11/10
goblet of fire:
The Fat Lady makes an excellent choice by getting drunk off chocolate liqueurs, a+ example of combining chocolate and alcohol. Ron got some chocolate from Hagrid for having a sneaky lil niffler... the BIGGEST disappointment is Molly Weasley sending Hermione a tiny chocolate egg instead of a dragon sized one like harry and ron because of a Rita Skeeter™ rumour she's with Krum and Harry?? like wtff a grown ass woman almost made a child cry because of their passive aggressive chocolate giving 1/10
order of the phoenix:
Hermione gave two boxes of chocolate for Harry's birthday, but teenage angst™ harry throws them out. Poor form m8. Also, he has a weird dream about Cedric, Cho and chocolate frogs?? Why bro. Additionally, Harry and Ginny have a romantical moment as she gives him chocolate... Before Madam Pince screams "CHOCOLATE IN THE LIBRARY- OUT- OUT!" Classic choco madness! Overall, a wild ride on the chocolate train. maybe too wild. im going with a 6/10
Romilda Vane tried to spike Harry through chocolate cauldrons -30 points... Furthermore, Tom Riddle kills Hepzibah Smith with hot cocoa and uses that death to make a horcrux. An absolute shocker! Chocolate used to make Voldemort immortal!!! and to murder!!! improper use of a sacred food: -282939399/10
Wow, disappointing. One chocolate card wrapper on the floor, a chocolate card and french chocolate from the Delacours. 3 mentions in 197,651 words. Disgraceful. I reckon there's correlation between how happy a story is and the amount of chocolate references. conclusively: appalling 0.015/10
bonus fantastic beasts:
"But I made 'em cocoa?". excellent start, promising: 7/10
1093. There are lots of Wonka candies at Honeydukes- mainly because Wonka himself was a student at Hogwarts once. A Hufflepuff, he was a very talented and creative student, particularly when it came to potions. They always came out absurdly sweet, though, no matter what.
Ace Slytherins convince Ambrosius and his wife to stock ace pride sweets at Honeydukes. (Many of which are simply the pride colors, but some of which change a person’s tongue or hair to the pride colors. One of which also conjures a temporary dragon tattoo that flits around to different parts of the body.)
Ace Slytherins are the least phased by acephobic comments.
Some ace Slytherins are out and proud and won’t let you forget it.
Some ace Slytherins only talk about their sexuality with their friends because those are the only people who deserve to know such an important thing about them.
Ace Slytherins constantly discuss the morality of amortentia in potions class even when they won’t be studying love potions for several months.
Ace Slytherins spearhead event planning for Ace Awareness Week at Hogwarts.
Ace Slytherins like to eat breakfast together. They spread out with other friends for lunch and dinner, but breakfast time is ace time.
Ace Slytherins look regal af in pride clothing combos of purple and emerald.
It’s this sweetshop where they’ve got everything… Pepper Imps – they make you smoke at the mouth – and great fat Chocoballs full of strawberry mousse and clotted cream, and really excellent sugar quills, which you can suck in class and just look like you’re thinking what to write next –
Harry once convinced Draco to watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Draco was sorely disappointed that a factory like that didn’t actually exist. After the movie, Draco went immediately to Honeydukes where he spent exactly 5 minutes and 14 galleons.
When I was a kid/teen rereading the series (sometimes still haha), I would make a blanket fort and get loads of snacks and pretend I’d just came from one of the shops or feasts that was being described. It made the books so much better pretending, especially the Honeydukes or Christmas scenes. So much Hygge!
I always imagine that some the spouses (which maybe quite a few) of the teaching staffs from Hogwarts live or have a house in Hogsmeade, so they can stay close to their love one. And kids who live in Hogsmeade are envied by all, and they are always asked to bring sweets from Honeydukes.
