Bring the taste of the Wizarding World to your home
After years and years of waiting, Warner Bros. is finally releasing a bottled Butterbeer you can buy online — and it is vegan. UK Potterheads will be able to fill their cauldrons with the world’s first bottled Butterbeer right from the comfort of their homes.
Previously only available in draught form at select Wizarding World of Harry Potter locations, the famous drink from J.K. Rowling’s series will be available for purchase at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, and the Platform 9 ¾ Shops at London King’s Cross Station, and Heathrow Airport.
Potterheads can also order the sweet butterscotch flavored soft drink online at shop.wbstudiotour.co.uk or harrypotterplatform934.com, however, delivery is currently only available within the UK. Made and brewed in the UK, the drink comes in a souvenir glass bottle that features an exclusive collectible label designed by MinaLima, the design duo behind the graphic props of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films.
If you don’t fancy a butterscotch soft drink, then how about a backpack that dispenses boxed wine? Franzia, a prolific boxed wine brand, has launched its own online store this week, and part of the launch is the brand’s newly released collection of merchandise. Designed to hold your favorite box of Franzia wine, the $32 backpack features a wine opening on the side of the backpack to fit a Franzia spout so you can pour a glass while doing fun outdoor activities.
“There is a special kind of friendship formed around a box of Franzia that turns friends into ‘Franz,’” Jeff Dubiel, chief marketing officer at Franzia’s parent company, The Wine Group, said in the announcement. “Our goal is to connect with these consumers throughout all of life’s friendship moments by continually offering new ways to interact with the brand.”
The website currently shows the item as “coming soon” for ordering purposes.
Boxed wine has become trendy nowadays as the packaging is unbreakable and lighter, not to mention that it looks hip.
