This summer at Universal Orlando Resort is going to be hot, but the Wizarding World of Harry Potter has rolled out a brand new treat to help you beat the heat. The Butterbeer ice lolly has finally arrived, right at the end of Butterbeer season.

This popsicle will be available throughout the summer for a limited time from the Hopping Pot in Diagon Alley and the Magic Neep cart in Hogsmeade.

This is a similar concept to the character Freeze Ray Pops in Minion Land. The outside is a hard shell and the inside is a soft popsicle. The outer layer replicates the flavor of Butterbeer’s foam topping while the inside is inspired by the beverage.

These come prepackaged and wrapped in themed Butterbeer plastic. The stick is also themed with a “B” for Butterbeer. When you finish your popsicle, you’ll find a surprise design on the stick of what appear to be bugs.

Wandering around Hogsmeade taking photos and videos of the popsicle, we thought the interior would be a puddle by the time we opened the packaging. The bottom might have been a little leaky, but the first bite of the popsicle was still frozen.

It tasted a bit like a white chocolate shell. We couldn’t taste much Butterbeer at first. We let it soften some before eating more and the Butterbeer flavors were there in the second bite.

The Butterbeer flavor was faint but built upon itself with each bite. It’s creamy and not sweet. It’s a delicious treat.

Grab napkins and wrap the stick to prevent the lolly from dripping on your hand.
