A Peppermint Toad was a magical peppermint cream, shaped like a toad, which "hopped realistically in the stomach" when it is consumed.[1]

History

A Peppermint Toad

Tulip Karasu had to promise Barnaby Lee a box of Peppermint Toads for him to agree to talk to Jacob's sibling.[2]

These sweets were sold at Honeydukes in Hogsmeade.[1][3] One day in 1993, the day after a weekend trip to the village and the first day of the holidays, Harry Potter found Ron Weasley rubbing his stomach as he ate a Peppermint Toad, presumably because it was jumping around inside him.[4] Later that same school year, during a party in Gryffindor Tower celebrating Gryffindor's victory over Ravenclaw at Quidditch, George Weasley threw Peppermint Toads bought at Honeydukes into the crowd of Gryffindors.[3]
