The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley is now open at Universal Studios Florida. If you are planning on checking out this area anytime soon, you can definitely expect some lines waiting for both the Hogwarts Express as well as the area’s signature ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.

However, if you want to cool down and have a distinctly Harry Potter-style treat, here are four Diagon Alley exclusives that you just have to try!

1. Butterbeer Ice Cream

Though Hogsmeade brought us regular and frozen Butterbeer back when it opened in 2010, Butterbeer soft serve ice cream is easily the definitive version of this treat. Available at both Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlor as well as the Fountain of Fair Fortune tavern, this treat is exceptionally sweet (even more so than the liquid or frozen varieties) and even has a ribbon of Butterbeer syrup swirled right in! Only those with a serious sweet tooth need apply!

2. Fishy Green Ale

This drink sounds disgusting, and looks pretty gross too. However, if you can get past the thick green look of this drink, with its slimy green “eggs” at the bottom, you’ll actually in in for a rather refreshing treat! Despite its name, Fishy Green Ale actually consists of a mint-flavored tea that has blueberry boba beads at the bottom. These boba are also the exploding kind, which make this beverage easy to drink and rather refreshing as well.

3. Tongue Tying Lemon Squash

If you’re in the mood for something a little bit more refreshing, the Tongue Tying Lemon Squash is a perfect fit. This slightly tart lemonade style drink is a great offering for those who aren’t feeling very adventurous but still want a taste of something unique and a little different from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.



Looks great! Choco chili ice cream has actually been around a while though. Jeni's ice cream has had it for years. Still a great treat!
