Many of us Harry Potter fans have always wondered what the numerous fictitious foods and drinks of the wizarding world might have tasted like.

Slowly over time, companies like Jelly Belly gave us Bertie Botts Every Flavoured Beans, and with the opening of The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, we got to taste Chocolate Frogs, The Great Feast, Fizzing Whizzbees, and more!

But good news has surfaced today in the muggle world. We will soon be able to buy Butterbeer flavored ice cream!

Per The Huffington Post, the Butterbeer flavor will be produced by Yuengling Ice Cream, and will be a mix of butter cream and butterscotch ice cream, with a butterscotch swirl.

Now we know you want some!

“My kids were big Harry Potter fans and we wanted to do something unique,” says David Yuengling, president of Yuengling’s Ice Cream.

Though typically an ale in the books, this Butterbeer formula will be appropriate for all ages. It's manufactured by Yuengling Ice Cream, which was founded by owner D.G. Yuengling & Son Brewery during the prohibition period, but is no longer affiliated with the beer company of the same name.

The Butterbeer flavor will also become a regular part of the Yuengling selection instead of just a limited edition product. It will retail from $3.69-$3.99 per pint, and will be available in many grocery stores around the U.S.

If you're like us, you're going to go grab some ice cream after reading this while you wait for this wonderful dessert to hit stores. 

We can't wait to try the new flavor! What is your favorite type of ice cream?
