"Breathe fire for your friends!"

Pepper Imps were tiny black peppermint sweets that allowed the consumer to breathe fire, and make them smoke at the ears and nose. They were sold at Honeydukes in Hogsmeade, Scotland,[2][1] most likely along with other sweet shops in the wizarding world.

In 1993, before the start of the 1993–1994 school year at Hogwarts, Ron Weasley raved about these sweets to his friend Harry Potter, when they were discussing Honeydukes.[2] During the school year, Ron and Hermione Granger brought Harry as many sweets as they could carry, including a packet of Pepper Imps, from their first trip to Hogsmeade, as he was not allowed to go.[3] Fiery Black Pepper Imps were mentioned on a red advertisement in the Knight Bus.[4] In 2017, Scorpius Malfoy told Albus Potter that he regarded the Pepper Imp as the "king of the confectionary bag".[5]
