Exploding bonbons were sweets made by Kaboon Choco Ltd..[1] They contained pure cocoa and Coconut Dynamite.[1] They presumably blew up when eaten, although they likely did not cause a major explosion, given the injury this would cause.

These sweets were sold at Honeydukes in Hogsmeade.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • Exploding Bonbons are one of several Harry Potter tie-in candies that have been produced in real life.
  • Educational Decree Number Sixty-Seven forbade these bonbons from exploding in school and also required owners to turn them in to an approved disposal unit.
