Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans are one of the most popular treats in the wizarding world and Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter! These are very similar to Muggle Jelly Beans, except they have been created in every flavor imaginable: some you want to taste and some you do not!
If you ever wonder what that magical box held inside, but were afraid to open it, well, my family has taken then mystery and the misery out of the beans for you!
We purchased our beans at Honeydukes in Hogsmeade.
In the spirit of a wizarding adventure, we decided to take a blind taste test and see if we can determine what exactly we were eating!
The small box of beans contains a mix of 20 different flavors. We found 19 in our box and we divided them into colors:
White with Brown Spots
Yellow with White Spots
Gray and Black Spots
Orange with Red Spots
Pink with Different Colored Spots
Brown with Black Spots
Yellow with Brown Spots
Light Green with Dark Green Spots
Brown with Red/Brown/White Spots
Very Dark Green
Green with White Spots
These were our rules for our Taste Panel of 3:
1. Each person gets 1 bean. If there aren’t 3 beans, a bean will be cut to share.
2. Each person must chew the bean.
3. A consensus must be obtained for the flavor.
4. Each person will eat a saltine cracker between beans to cleanse our palate.
5. The Flavor Guide would be consulted only after all beans had been eaten.
And we started on our exciting and frightful experiment!
For the most part, we guessed pretty close. Sometimes we practically threw up; and sometimes our taste buds jumped with joy! But, we always ended up surprised and laughing at the faces either other made!
The only color we were missing was white which corresponded to soap. And we decided we could pass on that one!
Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans are just some of the amazing tastes, sights and sounds that one can experience at Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Don’t you think it’s time you planned a visit with your family?
