Chocolate

Chocolate Frogs are a popular confection that are sold throughout the wizarding world. They are packaged with collectible cards portraying famous wizards and witches. Many of the pupils at Hogwarts collect and trade these cards. The frogs are made of seventy percent Croakoa. Presumably, this substance is what allows them to act like an actual frog.

Chocolate Frogs also come in a white chocolate variety. A popular game for Hogwarts students is to let a bunch of Chocolate Frogs hop around, and to grab the normal ones while avoiding the white ones.[1]

Chocolate Frog cardsEdit

The Chocolate Frog collectible cards played an important role in Harry, Ron, and Hermione's first year at Hogwarts, as Dumbledore's card enabled them to ascertain the identity of Nicolas Flamel.[2]

Some notable cards are: Albus Dumbledore, Morgan le Fay, Ptolemy, Circe, Paracelsus, Merlin, Cliodna, Hengist of Woodcroft, Alberic Grunnion, and Agrippa.
