If you ask me, fall is ultimate snacking season. There are so many fun treats everywhere, from pumpkin pie and apple cider to cinnamon… well, pretty much everything. If you love rich, warm treats, October, November, and December are the perfect time for devouring those treats. The only possible thing that could make fall snacking even better is adding some magic to the mix. Thankfully, Virginia-based donut shop (what is more autumnal than a good donut, I ask you…) Sugar Shack has turned toward everyone’s favorite boy wizard for some serious inspiration. Starting in mid-October, the store will be selling a Harry Potter inspired Butterbeer-Flavored Golden Snitch donuts. Yes, I know, it’s a lot to process. But you’re going to want to keep reading, fellow Potterheads.
The donuts, which will be available for a limited time only, features a generous helping of white glaze, a sprinkling of tiny golden stars, and the Pièce de résistance: a gorgeously crafted Golden Snitch right smack dab in the center of it all. Of course, if you’ve been lucky enough to make your way to Harry Potter World, you know that Butterbeer tastes like the sweetest sort of butterscotch you’ve ever had… and we imagine Sugar Shack’s donut will be much the same.
Now, for the good and bad news. The bad news? Sugar Shack is only available in select locations. The good news? According to Popsugar, these gorgeous Butterbeer donuts are available now at Sugar Shack locations in Alexandria, Virginia, and in Washington, DC, and the rest of the stores in Virginia and Florida will begin serving the treats later this month. Because they’re bound to be in high demand, you can reach out your local shop via phone to preorder the Butterbeer donut on the following dates: October 14, October 15, October 21, and October 22. If you’re on the hunt for the ideal Halloween treat, this is definitely the one.
For those who don’t live near a Sugar Shack, you could always attempt to make your own seasonal butterbeer treat. There are tons of recipes all over the internet that share ideas of donuts, muffins, cake, cookies, drinks…you name it. Or you could just hop on your broom or stick your wand out for the Night Bus, and road trip over to one of Sugar Shack’s locations and grab one of these super special treats for yourself before they’re all accio’d right out of there.
