Butterbeer Donuts Are Here And 'Harry Potter' Fans Are Freaking Out

My wife is the one responsible for my appreciation of all things Potter-related. One of the biggest takeaways I had from the movies when she finally sat me down to binge watch them all was that the wizards of Hogwarts really, really knew how to eat.

Cauldron cakes? Steak and kidney pies? Treacle tarts? Come on, sign me up baby. I want it all! But the one treat I craved for most wasn’t even really food: it was Butterbeer. I’m not the biggest fan of butterscotch, but my God, when those three little magical nerds sat down to sip on some of the buttery business, my mouth began watering.

Sugar Shack Donuts & Coffee out of Virginia has created a Butterbeer donut that looks absolutely incredible. If you’re not familiar with Butterbeer, it tastes like a mash-up of cream soda and butterscotch. 

Not only has Sugar Shack made a donut that’s full of Butterbeer flavor, but as an homage to Harry Potter, they packed a golden snitch made out of a donut hole so you can regale your friends with tales of your quidditch prowess right before you bite into it.

The donuts pack golden star sprinkles and the snitch is decked out with vanilla fondant wings: It truly is a thing of beauty.

Now if you want to get yourself one of these tasty treats, you’ll have to be quick about it. Sugar Shack is offering these at all of their locations eventually, but the availability will be limited. So hop on your nimbus 2000 to pick one up, but you may want to call ahead just to make sure your nearest shop carries them.

This 'Harry Potter' Themed Starbucks Is A Dream Come True

San Diego Comic-Con is in full swing and everyone wants in on the action. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a local Starbucks in Hilton Bayfront has made their eatery Harry Potter themed in honor of the weekend’s special devotion to all things magical. They even changed their doorway to look like the entrance to Platform 9 3/4, but this ride takes you to caffeine town instead of Hogwarts.

The place has paid remarkable attention to detail, with lots of special signs that all true Harry Potter fans will likely lose their minds over, much like reporter Sydney Bucksbaum who has been going wild on Twitter:

Though she’s hardly the only one: Lots of journalists who need a hot cup of java to get through the long lines are stopping by.

But Bucksbaum’s enthusiasm may be the funniest:

Though there is one place she still can’t go:
