Pumpkin Pasties are a wizarding food sold by the Honeydukes Express on the Hogwarts Express. They are similar to a Cornish Pastie, but are filled with pumpkin instead.

History

Harry Potter tried them for the first time on the Hogwarts Express, at the start of his first year, when he famously impressed Ron Weasley by buying some of everything on the trolley. He bought some of everything off the food trolley, and then shared his food with Ron Weasley. In 1994, Cho Chang ordered two from the food trolley.

Behind the scenes

  • Pasties are a traditional baked meat and pastry pie. This indicates that Pumpkin Pasties are similar fare, using pumpkin as the filling instead of meat and vegetables. [1]
  • In the PC versions of the video games, pumpkin pasties along with cauldron cakes can be collected and traded as currency, much to the Honeydukes Chef's dismay (acting similar to a dollar foil to Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans in a sense). Though in the other video games, they are mainly used as healing items, or in the GBA version of The Philosopher's Stone, a stamina booster.
    • Also in the video games, the pasties resemble actual miniature pumpkins instead of a pie. Some renditions also show them with a carved face as well.
