Meringue is a type of dessert made from beaten egg whites and sugar.[1] When Neville Longbottom was eight years old, his great-uncle Algie hung him out of an upstairs window in an attempt to get him to show some sign of being magical, and accidentally dropped him when he was offered a meringue by Neville's great-aunt Enid.[2]
