This poll was suggested by Chemyst, May 10, 2008....Thanks, Chemyst!

Congratulations! When you checked under the cap of your last bottle of butter beer you found the matching code number. Your prize is a gift certificate for three free items at Honeydukes. Which 3 sweets will you choose?

1) Acid Pops: will burn a hole right through your tongue

2) Blood-flavored lollipops: for vampires, presumably

3) Chocoballs: full of strawberry mousse and clotted cream

4) Cockroach Clusters: the texture is entirely too, too realistic **shudders** (I speak from experience here)

5) Drooble’s Best Blowing-gum: fill the room w/bluebell colored bubbles that last for days

6) Fizzing Whizzbies: massive sherbet balls that cause you to levitate

7) Ice Mice: hear your teeth chatter and squeak

8 )Jelly Slugs

9) Licorice Wands

10) Pepper Imps: tiny black candy that causes you to breathe fire

11) Peppermint Toads: peppermint creams shaped like toads and hop realistically in your stomach

12) Sugar Quills: you can get away with sucking on one in class

13) Toothflossing Stringmints: splintery

14) Honeyduke’s Fudge (flavor of your choice)

15) Honeyduke’s Finest Chocolate

16) Honeyduke’s Toffee

17) Chocolate Frogs: collectible cards of famous witches and wizards

18) Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans: Alas...earwax...or was that vomit?

3) Chocoballs: full of strawberry mousse and clotted cream

6) Fizzing Whizzbies: massive sherbet balls that cause you to levitate

16) Honeyduke’s Toffee

Edit: Oops! freshwater, when I cut and pasted my choices, I didn't look too carefully at my last choice. I just saw the Honeyduke's part and didn't check the 2nd word carefully. I meant:

15) Honeyduke’s Finest Chocolate not Toffee - I don't like how it gets stuck in my teeth

Harry Potter

I knew that you and I had a lot in common, PAH....those are exactly my choices, too!

3) Chocoballs: full of strawberry mousse and clotted cream.....because it sounds so decadent and luscious!

6) Fizzing Whizzbies: massive sherbet balls that cause you to levitate....because the very name reminds me of a fanfic I read where Harry ate these and got stuck on the ceiling of the Common Room for several hours, while fellow Gryffindors passed under him quipping, "What's up, Harry?"

16) Honeyduke’s Toffee....because toffee is my absolute favorite and who could do it better than Honeydukes?

_____________________________________

PatPat - Jun 23, 2008 7:14 pm (#3 of 36)

Hmm. I'm going to look like a copycat, now, but, PAH, those are my choices too!

3) Chocoballs: full of strawberry mousse and clotted cream . . . can beat chocolate AND strawberry!

6) Fizzing Whizzbies: massive sherbet balls that cause you to levitate....always wanted to be able to defy gravity!

15) Honeyduke’s finest chocolate....because . . . well, it's chocolate!

6, 10, and 12. I'm picking things you can't get in the muggle world because it's just more fun to levitate from a sherbet ball! LOL

Oh, come on, Freshwater! I have a major sweet tooth! In fact, they are all "sweet teeth"! How can I choose only three? Hmmmmm ... Since I'm not sure what clotted cream is (I associate "clotted" with being soured), #3 won't quite do the trick. I guess I'll have to go with 15) Honeydukes Finest Chocolate, as I must something chocolate each day. 6) Fizzing Whizbees sound fun, as I love sherbet. I could have one before bedtime and levitate, which might help my back. Although I do like some licorice, I'm picky about it ... so I'll probably go with 14) Honeydukes Fudge for my third. So 15, 6, and 14.

Hmm... My all-time favourite is chocolate (so much that you might think I am haunted by dementors all the time, but luckily I am not), but when at Honeyduke's I should perhaps widen my views. I think I choose:

4) Cockroach Clusters - they sound gross, but as they were "stolen" from Monty Python's Crunchy Frog sketch, I just have to test them.

17) Chocolate Frogs - because they are not crunchy, because I have to have some chocolate and because I will get some education about famous wizards.

18) Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans - I don't really like the element of surprise about these sweets, but still it fascinates me...

_____________________________________

Anna L. Black - Jun 24, 2008 1:38 am (#9 of 36)

12) Sugar Quills (Could really use some in the uni. today!)

17) Chocolate Frogs (It's like the wizarding world version of Kinder eggs - both chocolate and something to collect )

6) Fizzing Whizzbies - just because it sounds cool to levitate

_____________________________________

journeymom - Jun 24, 2008 7:54 am (#10 of 36)

15) Honeyduke’s Finest Chocolate - Without a doubt my first choice. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Chocolate is real life magic.

5) Drooble’s Best Blowing-gum- I love the idea of blowing bubbles that hang around for a while.

12) Sugar Quills- great fun, especially if they're a little tart, like I imagine.

Soli - clotted cream things tend to taste...well...creamier than say double cream things.

Dryleaves - glad to know someone else knows the Monty Python reference.

3) Chocoballs 6) Fizzing Whizzbies 12) Sugar Quills

virginiaelizabeth - Jun 24, 2008 12:14 pm (#12 of 36)

5. Droobles Best Blowing Gum because I'm a gum addict!
6.Fizzing Whizzbies because it makes you levitate, and I've always imagined they would taste kinda like Poprocks!
17. Chocolate Frogs because not only is it chocolate, you get a card with it!

_____________________________________

Orion - Jun 24, 2008 1:05 pm (#13 of 36)

For me, sweets that don't exist in the muggle world, because for chocolate I only have to go to the supermarket. I choose

5) Drooble’s Best Blowing-gum: fill the room with bluebell colored bubbles that last for days, so you have to fight your way through to the bathroom.

6) Fizzing Whizzbies: massive sherbet balls that cause you to levitate. How can anybody not choose them?

18) Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans are fantastic because you can taste what you always wanted to taste just to know what it tastes like, for instances, how does freshly cut grass taste for a cow? How does nectar taste for a bee? And I'd really like to taste cotton (for a moth).

HungarianHorntail11 - Jun 24, 2008 1:17 pm (#14 of 36)

17 Chocolate frogs (for Ginny's reasons and it hops)
6 Fizzing whizzbies (floating is fun)
9 Licorice wands (I really like licorice and AND I can play tricks on people and eat the evidence. 'Gee, how EVER did that mustache appear on your face? WHAT wand?' )

_____________________________________

journeymom - Jun 24, 2008 1:46 pm (#15 of 36)

I didn't chose Fizzing Whizzbies because I always imagined they'd make you bloated... like in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. You can't de-levitate until you've burped massively.

_____________________________________

Mrs Brisbee - Jun 24, 2008 7:31 pm (#16 of 36)

Chocolate, fudge, and strawberry mousse all sound divine, but I know Muggle shops that can work extraordinary magic with these confections, so I'm going for the more fantastical:

6) Fizzing Whizzbies: massive sherbet balls that cause you to levitate I don't care how it's done, I'm levitating!

7) Ice Mice: hear your teeth chatter and squeak >squeak squeak squeak<

10) Pepper Imps: tiny black candy that causes you to breathe fire Breath fire? Awesome!

_____________________________________

Solitaire - Jun 24, 2008 8:00 pm (#17 of 36)

Actually, breathing fire might be useful when dealing with a couple of the incoming 7th graders this fall. Hmmm ...

_____________________________________

freshwater - Jun 24, 2008 8:15 pm (#18 of 36)



ROTFLOL!!! I'd had the very same thought earlier, Solitaire, that those pepper imps might come in very handy for teachers with certain difficult students!

_____________________________________

Solitaire - Jun 24, 2008 9:10 pm (#19 of 36)

Yeah, we wouldn't actually burn them or anything ... but having the ability to do so would instill a certain ... um ... respect. **Spoken in a cool, quiet, Snape-like way**

_____________________________________

Dryleaves - Jun 25, 2008 12:10 am (#20 of 36)

Hmm... A couple of years ago I was extremely stressed for a period of time and was irritated as soon as anyone came in my way, for example if they did ride their bikes too slowly in front of me and not letting me pass... My daughter had a children's book that I read to her at the time, about a boy whose mother turned into a dragon, and there was a double page where she ran around breathing fire at people in the park (nobody got hurt). I used this picture as a fantasy to let of some steam...

Elanor - Jun 25, 2008 5:50 am (#21 of 36)

Well, truth be told, these days it seems to me that I already breathe fire way too often at school...
It might not be spectacular enough though because it doesn't seem to be that efficient so I'll go with the: 10) Pepper Imps: tiny black candy that causes you to breathe fire .

To help hanging on (still a week and a half before summer break ), I'm sure 15) Honeyduke’s Finest Chocolate and 3) Chocoballs: full of strawberry mousse and clotted cream would help too.

_____________________________________

freshwater - Jun 25, 2008 7:19 pm (#22 of 36)

**shudders** A week and a half still before your summer break, Elanor?! **passes her a Choco-ball** You have my sympathy....aren't the last days the hardest of all? Makes you want to take the kids outside for recess and then handout Fizzing Whizzbies...

_____________________________________

Elanor - Jun 25, 2008 10:09 pm (#23 of 36)

Thanks Freshwater! They are the worst indeed (and it's 31°C/88°F inside the classroom these days)! To be honest, I have already thought that giving some of them some of Hagrid's fudge (only to celebrate the approaching break of course...) could be effective nice.

(BTW, this could be an idea for another poll: which of Hagrid's "specialties" would you dare trying?)

_____________________________________

Julia H. - Jun 26, 2008 6:07 am (#24 of 36)

It is difficult to choose but I have made up my mind finally:

It is so hot right now that

7) Ice Mice: hear your teeth chatter and squeak

sounds rather attractive (though I am not sure I would enjoy the special effects). (Because of the weather I don't want anything associated with fire - normal breathing feels almost like breathing fire now.)

I must include some chocolate and I think my choice would be

17) Chocolate Frogs: collectible cards of famous witches and wizards

mainly because of the cards.

Finally, I have always wanted to taste

18) Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans.

Some of the flavours are good, aren't they?

_____________________________________

Veritaserum - Jun 26, 2008 5:18 pm (#25 of 36)

Definitely Honeyduke's Chocolate-- gotta be way better than Hershey's. Also Fizzing Whizbees and Peppermint Toads.

_____________________________________

Madam Pince - Jun 26, 2008 6:26 pm (#26 of 36)

6) Fizzing Whizzbies: Gotta try that levitating thing...

17) Chocolate Frogs: chocolate and a collectible -- can't beat that with a big stick!

18) Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans: Yes, I know... the bad ones are really really bad, but our family has so much fun eating these! Spaghetti or vomit? Popcorn or rotten egg? Hmmmm... which is it? (Trust me... the rotten egg one is tricky, and you don't want to make the mistake. )

_____________________________________

PeskyPixie - Jun 29, 2008 7:30 pm (#27 of 36)

Let's see ...

3) Chocoballs: full of strawberry mousse and clotted cream

5) Drooble’s Best Blowing-gum: fill the room w/bluebell colored bubbles that last for days

6) Fizzing Whizzbies: massive sherbet balls that cause you to levitate These sound scrumdiddliumptious!



I bought a pack of Jelly Slugs and one of Blood Pops. I didn't like either. The Every Flavour Beans are alright if you don't get something gross. I've unwittingly encountered sardine, earthworm and vomit. ***shudders*** Buttered popcorn and blueberry were awesome though.

_____________________________________

Solitaire - Jun 29, 2008 8:40 pm (#28 of 36)

I'm curious to know what bozo tasted an earthworm in order to find out how to make that flavour! Ick!

_____________________________________

PeskyPixie - Jun 29, 2008 9:00 pm (#29 of 36)

LOL, bozo indeed. The earthworm bean actually tastes as wet dirt smells X 1000! Not pleasant.

I love fish though, and was disappointed with the sardine bean. It tasted how I would expect rotten fish to taste. I spat that one right out! The black pepper bean was surprisingly good. I'm indifferent to the spinach one. I like spinach, but I'm not sure whether I like it as candy.

My friend loved the Jelly Slugs so I gave them to her. I think it was the shape which turned me off (I can't eat gummy worms either, although I'm a huge fan of sour candy).

_____________________________________

Mrs Brisbee - Jun 29, 2008 9:21 pm (#30 of 36)

My daughter gave me an Every Flavor Bean and told me it was lemon.

Alas, booger.

That pretty much put me off the things.

Nicoline Vance - Jul 1, 2008 8:28 pm (#31 of 36)

#6 Fizzing Whizzbies, #15 Honeyduke's Finest Chocolate, & #16 Honeydukes toffees, but then I would spend my own money on licorice wands, ice mice, and chocolate frogs.

_____________________________________

mona amon - Jul 2, 2008 11:01 pm (#32 of 36)

6) Fizzing whizzbees- definitely my first choice.

And muggle-ish though they be, my next two choices are

3) Chocoballs: full of strawberry mousse and clotted cream and

15) Honeyduke's Finest Chocolate.

_____________________________________

Chemyst - Jul 5, 2008 4:09 pm (#33 of 36)

15) Honeyduke’s Finest Chocolate; because I'm curious as to how it compares with the Muggle varieties.

6) Fizzing Whizzbies: massive sherbet balls that cause you to levitate; because they sound like real calorie-burners.

5) Drooble’s Best Blowing-gum: fill the room w/bluebell colored bubbles that last for days; I think I'd save these for a party.

_____________________________________

Choices - Jul 5, 2008 4:28 pm (#34 of 36)

I'll go with the Chocoballs, the Chocolate Frogs (hope I get that famous witch/wizard card I'm missing) and Honeyduke's Toffee. Yum, I can hardly wait until it arrives. :-)

_____________________________________

TwinklingBlueEyes - Jul 5, 2008 7:37 pm (#35 of 36)

17) Chocolate Frogs: collectible cards of famous witches and wizards

15) Honeyduke’s Finest Chocolate
