UPDATE: The winners have been picked! They are as follow:

1st Place – NealieZealbie

Sickly Sticks

Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes is proud to present the newest addition to our successful Skiving Snackboxes: Sickly Sticks! These tasty treats come in four fanciful flavours: Rasping-berry, Cornelius Fudge, Loogie Lemon, and Pepperymint, (made with REAL PEPPER!) At the exact moment you consume a Sickly Stick you will immediately begin coughing uncontrollably for approximately thirty minutes, (which should be an ample amount of time for your professor to excuse you from the day’s lesson.) If your professor seems unwilling to let you leave, eating the second Sickly Stick within a few minutes of the first will double the desired coughing and general sickness.
Please see this package’s warning label for side-effects.

Advised servings of Sickly Sticks: No more than two sticks per hour.

If more than two Sickly Sticks are consumed within an hour possible adverse symptoms may include: burning, stinging, itching, oozing, vomiting, redness of the mouth, lingering uncontrollable coughing, sneezing, and hacking; in severe cases actual honking and yellowing of the skin have occurred.

If these effects don’t wear off within a few hours we suggest you contact a certified healer for an antidote, as well as Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes to report your symptoms for our records.

Artificial flavouring, butter, chocolate, citric acid, confectioners’ sugar,corn starch, enriched wheat flour, extract of honking daffodils (pollen), food colouring, lemon flavouring, milk, pepper, peppermint candies, peppermint extract, raspberry flavouring, salt, sneezewort, sodium bicarbonate, soy, vanilla extract, vegetable oil.

This product contains magical substances. If you are a muggle, we suggest you stick to plain candies and chocolates; and we assure you there is absolutely no such thing as wizards, witches, or magic of any kind.

2nd Place – BookNookKara

Aah-chews (aka Head-cold Hearts)

Why go to class when you can sneeze your way to a free period? Pop one of these sickle-sized yellow gummy hearts in your mouth and soon you’ll be coughing and sneezing to the point that your professor won’t be able to hear themselves lecture! Be sure to keep some tissues handy, because before you stop the out of control cold by eating the red gummy heart, you’ll be leaving more snot everywhere from your runny nose than a Slug-Vomiting charm produces! Lasts for 10-15 minutes or until you eat the red gummy heart, and some additional nose blowing may be required later in the day. 6 hearts of each color come in a bag. Taking more than one in the course of a fortnight could result in a 3-month long sneezing fit so use them wisely!

3rd Place – Rachezee

Polka Pox

Itching to get out of that exam? Class leaving you with a distinct feeling of dottiness? Then just take one of our delicious gummy chickens during class and within minutes you will have a nasty case of chicken pox! The red itchy dots will remain for 15 minutes which is more than enough time to not only get you dismissed from class but to also assure that your teacher will have no desire to check up on you after for fear you are contagious. After 15 minutes you will return to your normal state of health and beauty! One box contains 5 individually wrapped gummy chickens. Boxes come in strawberry, orange, or fruity punch flavors.

Do not exceed more than one gummy chicken per day. Overuse will cause the user to cluck like a chicken. Excessive overuse may cause the user to lay eggs

Honorable Mention – SiriusKingsley

Comatose Caramels

Upcoming week full of tests? Sleep deprived? Need some peace from your obsessive girlfriend? Look no further! Introducing Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes newest addition to the spectacular Skiving Snackbox candy line, Comatose Caramels! Eat one of these small and delectable caramels and you will instantly fall into a coma! Guaranteed to last for up to a week!

W.W.W. inc. (Weasly Wizarding Wheezes) is not responsible for injuries caused by eating caramels in inappropriate places (in front of stairs, man-eating spiders, dragons, notorious bullies, etc.) Or events missed while sleeping (Quidditch games, parties, having the boy you absolutely love break up with his girlfriend of 6 months, only to get another right before you wake up, etc.)

Side effects may include drowsiness, massive amounts of homework, and slight brain damage.

WARNING: consuming more than one Comatose Caramel at a time can lead to memory loss, month/year long comas, and furious mothers.

Honorable Mention – MalfoyDiva

Jolly Good Jelly Beans

Class making you want to pull out your hair? Create a hair growing spectacle that’ll have any professor sending you straight to Madam Pomfrey. These “Jolly Good Jelly Beans” are easy to use and fast acting. Take a yellow one and within seconds you’ll be hairier than Professor Hagrid. Once free of the classroom, take a blue one and the hair will quickly recede to normal once more, leaving you free to wander the halls, the ground, or to enjoy your common room at your leisure. (10 Yellow and 10 Blue per bag) Caution: Eating blue before yellow will render the user bald, to fix follow with a yellow to grow hair back. Also hilarious incidents have been known to occur when contents are mixed with Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans.
