- "The teachers were of course forbidden from mentioning the interview by Educational Decree Number Twenty-Six, but they found ways to express their feelings about it all the same. Professor Sprout awarded Gryffindor twenty points when Harry passed her a watering can; a beaming Professor Flitwick pressed a box of squeaking sugar mice on him at the end of Charms, said, 'Shh!' and hurried away; and Professor Trelawney broke into hysterical sobs during Divination and announced to the startled class, and a very disapproving Umbridge, that Harry was not going to suffer an early death after all, but would live to a ripe old age, become Minister for Magic and have twelve children."
- —Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Sugar mice are a sugary candy shaped like a mouse and enchanted to squeak and move. When Harry Potter stuck to his story about the return of Voldemort, Professor Flitwick rewarded him with a box of this candy.
