If Ollivander’s wand shop and animate chocolate frogs captured your imagination while reading or watching Harry Potter, prepare to dive headfirst into the sweet, sweet world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Jelly Belly, maker of the real-life Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans, has announced four new additions to its line of Harry Potter candies, including chocolate wands, chocolate house crests and gummy creatures.

The chocolate replica wands come in four different shapes that match those belonging to Harry, Hermione, Ron and Dumbledore. Each one includes a small list of spells that you can use to practice your magic. Just make sure not to go casting any hexes.

Chocolate house crests are available for each of the houses at Hogwarts Castle. They are super-crunchy, with a crisped rice center and a chocolate coating.

Chocolate creatures come in mystery packages, so you don’t know what you’ll get. Will it be Aragog the spider? Crookshanks the cat? Fang the cowardly dog? Fluffy the three headed dog? Hedwig the owl? The winged horse of death, the thestral? You’ll have to open it to find out.

And lastly, gummy creature come in individual packs and are available in the form of Fang, Fluffy, Buckbeak, Hedwig and Aragog.

The product announcement was perfectly timed to usher in Harry’s birthday on July 31st, though the candies will be available beginning October 1st. Would these not make the perfect Halloween candies?

In addition to the jelly beans, Jelly Belly also already makes chocolate frogs and jelly slugs.
