Now, the world isn't exactly running short of -themed merchandise, with it being perfectly possible for you to deck yourself out in a full outfit from the house of your choice, before curling up in bed covered with 's face, cuddling a stuffed Buckbeak. That, though, was never exactly likely to curtail the continued growth of the boy wizard-centric cottage industry, especially when we all still seem so willing to spend vast amounts of money to visit theme parks and see stage plays based on the property.

And so, in the logical next step of this particular trend:

Yup, that's right. In terrific news for anyone who has ever wanted to finish up a nice meal (or commiserate a terrible break up) with a more solid form of Butterbeer than the original novels or movies would have suggested, you can now purchase Butterbeer flavored ice cream, courtesy of Yeungling's Ice Cream.

Of course, the actual ice cream itself is less "magical," and more "full of butterscotch," being half buttercream ice cream, half butterscotch ice cream, with a twist of butterscotch swirl, but that's hardly likely to discourage it from being tasty.

What's more, since Yuengling's ice cream is technically a distinct corporate entity from its beer-making sister company, anyone out there who's currently avoiding drinking Yuengling's beer because of its owner Dick Yuengling's vocal support of Donald Trump can still enjoy some creamy Butterbeer dessert with a clean conscience, probably. Though in fairness, if you're inclined to boycott foodstuffs because of their owner's political leanings, you may not want to ask too many questions about pretty much anything you consume.

What do you think, though? Will you be rushing out to purchase some Butterbeer ice cream? Let us know below!
