"There were shelves upon shelves of the most succulent-looking sweets imaginable. Creamy chunks of nougat, shimmering pink squares of coconut ice, fat, honey-coloured toffees; hundreds of different kinds of chocolate in neat rows; there was a large barrel of Every Flavour Beans, and another of Fizzing Whizzbees, the levitating sherbet balls that Ron had mentioned; along yet another wall were ‘Special Effects’ sweets: Drooble’s Best Blowing Gum (which filled a room with bluebell-coloured bubbles that refused to pop for days), the strange, splintery Toothflossing Stringmints, tiny black Pepper Imps (‘breathe fire for your friends!’), Ice Mice (‘hear your teeth chatter and squeak!’), peppermint creams shaped like toads (‘hop realistically in the stomach!’) , fragile sugar-spun quills and exploding bonbons."
— Description of the sweets shop[src]

Honeydukes was a wizarding sweet shop located on High Street in the all-wizarding village of Hogsmeade. It was first established in 1641[1] and was owned by Ambrosius Flume and his wife, and was filled with "shelves upon shelves of the most succulent-looking sweets imaginable".[2]

In addition to the standard wizarding candy that was sold there, the owners also made their own fudge and chocolate. For obvious reasons, the shop was quite a popular destination for Hogwarts students when visiting Hogsmeade on the weekends and during the Christmas season one could barely move due to the crowd of visitors.[2]


Customers are reminded that until further notice, Dementors will be patrolling the streets of Hogsmeade every night after sundown. This measure has been put in place for the safety of Hogsmeade residents and will be lifted upon the recapture of Sirius Black. It is therefore advisable that you complete your shopping well before nightfall.
Merry Christmas!

The shop was run by Ambrosius Flume, a rather large, bald man, and his wife, who watched over the shop when he went to the cellar to retrieve the sweets that the main shop was running out of.[2]

The inside of Honeydukes

Honeydukes also housed the entrance to a secret passageway from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry directly into the cellar of the sweet-shop; however, it was advisable only to use it to go from Hogwarts Castle to Honeydukes and not the other way around, due to the presence of a stone slide at the Hogwarts end.

In the Gunhilda of Gorsemoor Corridor on the third floor of Hogwarts Castle, one could find a large stone statue of Gunhilda. By tapping the back of the statue with one's wand and incant "Dissendium", one would open up the secret passageway in the statue's hunched back, leading down a short, cool stone slide.[2] They would land in a very low, very narrow earthy passageway that twisted like a rabbit's burrow, rising after an hour or so and reached a large, worn stone staircase after ten minutes of steep ascent.[2] There were over two hundred steps on this staircase, and those climbing it would usually be surprised when their head hit the hard, cold trap-door.[2] This trap-door led into the cellar of Honeydukes, and matched the dusty floor perfectly.[2]

Honeydukes sweets

The cellar of the shop was full of wooden crates and boxes, with a very dusty floor and a large wooden staircase leading up to the main shop.[2] In the cellar, one could hear the opening and shutting of the sweet-shop door, as well as the tinkling of the bell above it.[2]

Honeydukes maintained and supplied the Honeydukes Express, a large food trolley which sold sweets to the staff and students riding the Hogwarts Express. It was driven about, and the candies were dispersed, by a kind, wizened old lady.

During the Calamity in the 2010s, volunteer members of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force were able to make visits to Honeydukes with the usage of Portkeys. On these visits, they were tasked with collecting Wrackspurts seen throughout the shop.[3]
