6 Butterbeer Treats Every Harry Potter Fan Must Try in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter


When I’m binge reading the Harry Potter series or hibernating over the weekend with a full-on Harry Potter movie marathon, there’s nothing I want more than Butterbeer. Luckily, Universal Orlando’s culinary team has brought this flavor to life for fans to enjoy in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

When people think of Butterbeer at Universal Orlando Resort, usually the first thing that comes to mind is our popular cold frothy beverage. However, there are a few other Butterbeer concoctions in the wizarding world that are also absolutely great.

First, let’s start with the classic cold, frozen and hot beverages.

Cold Butterbeer

For those of you who haven’t tried cold Butterbeer yet, your taste buds are missing out. This refreshing beverage has a nice fizzy feeling combined with a sweet taste reminiscent of butterscotch and shortbread.

One of my favorite things about cold Butterbeer is the awesome foam mustache you get while drinking this. Next time you’re visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter with your friends and family, see who in the group has the best Butterbeer mustache!

Frozen Butterbeer

This is the smooth, cold beverage you’ve always wanted – especially during those hot summer months. This drink has a flavor that tastes like shortbread and butterscotch served with a whipped topping.

This fan-favorite is the only Butterbeer beverage served with a straw because of its icy cool texture, which is perfect for savoring every last sip. Although it felt like an impossible decision to make, I’m on team frozen Butterbeer.

Available in:

  • Diagon Alley: Leaky Cauldron, The Hopping Pot
  • Hogsmeade: Three Broomsticks, Hog’s Head pub and Butterbeer street carts

Don’t forget your souvenir mug. You can get cold and frozen Butterbeer served in a special themed Butterbeer mug exclusive to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Hot Butterbeer

Now, on to a few other delicious Butterbeer-inspired specialties!

I’ve never had potted cream before, but as soon as I tasted my first spoonful I immediately fell in love with the smooth, creamy texture. It’s the perfect dessert.

Butterbeer Fudge


I’m a huge fan of fudge, so this was one of the Butterbeer treats I was most excited to try. I have to say, it lived up to the hype.

This treat has two layers that taste like shortbread and butterscotch, which combined make Butterbeer fudgy goodness. It’s the perfect amount of sweetness that I enjoyed until the very last bite.

Butterbeer Soft Serve Ice Cream

As if ice cream isn`t already wonderful enough, add Butterbeer flavor to the mix and you’ve got yourself an addicting new favorite. This soft-serve tastes like vanilla and butterscotch swirled to perfection. My only complaint is I can’t purchase it by the gallon!

I recently learned this treat is served in multiple locations around The Wizarding World of Harry Potter so whether you’re in Diagon Alley or Hogsmeade you can indulge in this delicious ice cream throughout the day.
