Harry Potter Haul ft. Magic Alley

Saturday, March 17, 2018
If you didn't know, I'm obsessed with Harry Potter! I grew up watching the films and kind of reading the books (I only read the first and last until a couple of years ago when I started the series properly). I think so many people love Harry Potter and I'm the same because it has such a warming, comforting and homely nostalgia to it that's always lovely and magical to come back to especially through difficult times.

I have all of the books and DVDs as well as so many Harry Potter pyjamas from Primark but the only more unique Harry Potter items I have are from the Harry Potter studios - I was lucky enough to go a couple of years ago and I'd definitely recommend it. The wonderful people over at Magic Alley were lovely enough to send over a few magical goodies from the wizarding world.

*Harry Potter Chocolate Frog (£3.95)
Obviously, a chocolate frog was a necessity! Any Hogwarts student cannot be without a chocolate frog. The chocolate frog is composed of milk chocolate and crisped rice. I love the packaging and the chocolate frog itself is so adorable and it's a yummy snack that isn't too calorific. The chocolate frog also comes with collectable wizard card and there are numerous designs to collect. I have a Dumbledore card from a chocolate frog I bought at the Harry Potter studios but in this pack I received The Potter Family card. The card is holographic so it moves to show Harry looking into the mirror of erised at his parents.
*Harry Potter Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer (£3.95, 355ml)
When we went to the studios, there was butter beer to buy but it was so expensive so I'm glad I'm able to try this version. It's 100% natural, gluten free and non-alcoholic; additionally it's 100% GMO free. The butterscotch beer is butterscotch flavoured cream soda - you can find the full ingredients list on the Magic Alley site.

"A personal favourite of ours, Reed Inc's Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer is an authentic butterbeer replica imported from the United States, and tastes great either by itself or with vanilla ice cream"

I haven't ever tried cream soda so I'm not sure if it's authentic but it tastes so nice! It has a very creamy, very sweet flavour that I think will be quite polarising as for some it will probably be too sweet but if you're a fan of cream soda or sweet drinks and candy then you'll love it. It is slightly carbonated and I'd definitely recommend it.
*Harry Potter Platform 9 3/4 Tote Bag (£11.95)
Lastly for the three products I was kindly sent is this gorgeous tote bag. Harry Potter themed tote bags are quite common and a lot of stores sell them but I haven't seen any like this one before! I have a few tote bags and I use them constantly for files, blog props, groceries and shopping but they're all a little flimsy but this one is very thick and sturdy and it's a great size - it's a little small but it's still very practical.

I love the platform 9 3/4 design as it's so simple but instantly recognisable and it stands out amongst the other designs out there. I'm going to London next month and I will definitely be taking this tote bag with me for shopping; also I might have to head to Kings Cross to get a photo at the Platform 9 3/4 shop there!
I'm so happy with all three products I was sent from Magic Alley - it arrived quickly and the glass bottle was well protected. They have a great range of products, some of which are quite unique and I'd definitely recommend ordering from them if you are in need of some magic in your life! I have quite a few Harry Potter items in my collection now but the only items I'm missing from my Hogwarts trunk is a wand and a Hufflepuff scarf!


Do you love the Harry Potter series? Do you own any Harry Potter merchandise?
