Acid Pops are one of the sweets sold by Honeydukes Sweetshop in Hogsmeade.[1] They may be similar to the Muggle lollipops, but like most Honeydukes' fare, they have an unconventional, practical joke-like twist with wizarding magic wherein they are able to burn a hole in the tongue.

"Acid Pops" was also a password used to gain entrance to Albus Dumbledore's office at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry while Harry was at school. Dumbledore informed Harry of this via a note which included "P.S.: I enjoy Acid Pops." Whether or not the actual statement was factual is unknown. It seems unlikely, though Dumbledore was known to enjoy unusual sweets.

Ron once mentioned that when he was seven, his brother Fred gave him one and it burned a hole straight through his tongue. His mother then hit Fred with her broom.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Hasbro used to sell Acid Pops as novelty sweets.[2]
  • Given that they can burn a hole through the tongue, Acid Pops would seem to be extremely dangerous and extremely painful to eat - why it is sold despite such a high risk of injury remains a mystery, although a possible explanation would be that the injuries caused by an Acid Pop are easily healed by magic means, since Ron's tongue damage was apparently healed without any complications or aftereffects, making the Acid Pops a sort of a "magic extreme sport of the tongue".
