What are Peppermint Humbugs?

0

Those who are fans of Harry Potter books may note J.K. Rowling’s mention of the sweet peppermint humbugs. These are not a magically invented sweet, and may reference Dumbledore’s love of “muggle” sweets that runs throughout the Harry Potter series. What’s interesting about the reference is Harry’s careful avoidance of the sweet, which may imply they were a magical take on a classic sweet, or just something to be avoided in general.
