"...really excellent sugar quills, which you can suck in class and just look like you're thinking what to write next —"
Ron Weasley listing the merchandise found within Honeydukes[src]

Sugar Quills were delicate, spun-sugar sweets made to resemble real quills.[2][1] Sold at various sweet shops, they can be sucked on secretly by students in class, as doing so simply makes one look as if they are thinking of what to write next.[2] They are also available in a Deluxe variety, which, according to Hermione Granger, lasts longer.[3]

Harry Potter guessed this as one of the possible passwords to unlock when attempting to get into Albus Dumbledore's office in his fourth year.[4]
