"Acid Pops" was also a [[password]] used to gain entrance to [[Albus Dumbledore]]'s office at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]] while [[Harry Potter|Harry]] was at school. Dumbledore informed [[Harry Potter|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. The main reason for it's content in the letter was to supply Harry with the correct password to his office.
