Acids Pops in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

"Fred gave me one when I was seven, it burnt a hole right through my tongue. I can remember Mum walloping him with her broomstick."
Ron Weasley[src]

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 your tongue, and taste sweet and sour. They are therefore extremely dangerous and extremely painful to eat - why it is sold despite such a high risk of injury remains a mystery.

An Acid Pop.

"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. The main reason for it's content in the letter was to supply Harry with the correct password to his office.

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

The main type of acid pop sold at Honeydukes was called areal pop, as can be seen in the image of acid pops from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The flavour there was mint.
