bertie bott’s every flavour beans

You want to be careful with those. When they say every flavour, they mean every flavour – you know you get all the ordinary ones like chocolate and peppermint and marmalade, but then you can get spinach and liver and tripe. George reckons he had a bogey-flavoured one once.” – Ron Weasley

Jennifer came back from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with some treasures for me: Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans! I was delighted, as I was curious about the unordinary flavors described in the books. Toffee pudding and toasted marshmallow sound so tempting. And pizza? Count me in.

The first bean I had was a pink one, which I decided was pink grapefruit. A little sweet, a little tart, all fruity. The second? It tasted like rice and beans, although I’m positive that’s not even a flavor, so I couldn’t tell you.  After my “rice and beans”, I decided to look up more flavors. And you won’t believe some of the stuff that’s in here (although I’m sure some of you HP fans will):

  • cheese
  • rotten egg (sincerely hoping I do not get this one EVER)
  • liver
  • farm dirt
  • pepper
  • mustard
  • earwax
  • dirty sock
  • soap

Is it wrong that I want to try almost everything? I feel like an 11 year-old boy who’s about to dissect a frog for the first time (“Cool! Guts and stuff!”).
