"Sherbet lemon? Okay. Pear Drop. Er — Liquorice Wand. Fizzing Whizbee. Drooble's Best Blowing Gum. Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans… oh no, he doesn't like them, does he?… oh just open, can't you? I really need to see him, its urgent!"
Harry Potter attempts to guess the password to Dumbledore's office[src]

A pear drop was a boiled Muggle sweet made from sugar and flavourings.[1] "Pear drop" was one of the incorrect password guesses Harry Potter made when he wanted to get into Dumbledore's office.[2]

One could buy pear drops at Honeydukes Sweetshop in Hogsmeade.[3]
