What are puking pastilles?
Puking pastilles are candies made by Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter series. They are designed to get you out of class–you eat the candy and you begin barfing uncontrollably. Once you get out of class you eat an additional candy and you stop puking. Other products in their line of “Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes” are Noseblood Nougat and Fever Fudge.
How do you pronounce “pastilles”?
There are several ways to pronounce “pastilles” depending on where you live. Even though I am American, I prefer the British pronunciation — pass tuhls –with the emphasis on the first syllable. Ginny Weasley says it very clearly in the movie “Order of the Phoenix.”
