A type of wizard candy in the book series Harry Potter.

Ron, Harry's friend, introduces him to this candy and shows him the trading cards inside, which Ron collects.

The cards show and describe famous witches and wizards. the interesting thing is that, like all wizard pictures, the people move around, so Harry was suprised to see that the picture on his first card, of Dumbledore, left the picture.

This card also helped Harry, Ron, and Hermione, to find information on Nicolas Flamel and the Sorcerer's Stone.
