New Hogsmeade Chocolate Frog Card Revealed at Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Chocolate Frogs are one of the most popular snacks in the Harry Potter universe. It's one of the first treats Harry and his new friend Ron enjoy on their train ride to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. When a new card out, it's definitely the talk of the wizarding world.

Universal Studios theme parks has done an amazing job bringing this snack to life. Every chocolate frog includes a collectible card just like in the movies. So far the founders of Hogwarts, Professor Gilderoy Lockhart, Bertie Blotts, and Dumbledore has been made available to purchase at the theme parks. A new card was added to the pack: Hengist of Woodcroft, a Scottish wizard who founded Hogsmeade.

One of my favorite things to do at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Florida is to pick up the next card for my collection. Just like in the movies, the cards are random - meaning you don't know who you get until open your chocolate frog. To collect the new cards that come with specialty marked boxes, guests must be on hand to collect them in person. (You can purchase a four pack of the headmasters at the Universal Studios merchandise website).

Here's my first look at the Hengist of Woodcroft. Not much is known about this wizard since he's not very relevant in the books, but it's good to know who founded one of wizarding world's most popular locations.
