Belly button lint is an accumulation of fluffy clothing fibers and, to a lesser extent, dead skin cells in the navel cavity. Belly button lint was a known flavour of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, which Harry Potter personally found revolting.
Behind the scenes
- The line of dialogue that mentions this particular flavour of Bertie Bott's Beans was intended to be used in the Game Boy Colour version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. However, this dialogue went unused in the final game, though it still appears in the game's ROM.
