[Top 10 Tuesday] Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books

[Top 10 Tuesday] Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books

Top 10 Tuesday is created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's prompt is: Top Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books.

Does a character eat something you'd love? Or maybe the book takes place in a bakery/restaurant that makes yummy things? You could also talk about 10 of your favorite cookbooks if you don't read foody books.

Let's dive in!



Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books


10. Butter Beer 
From the Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
This one just had to make the list! I've been dying to try Butter Beer from Harry Potter world down in Florida, but I've also heard it's kinda gross. I'll have to find out someday! 

9. Lembas Bread 
From The Lord of the Rings Series by J. R. R. Tolkien
Lembas Bread is a highly nutritious bread that travelers can use as sustenance for months on end. 

8. Swudge 
From Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Swudge is a grass made of soft, minty sugar.

7. Fudge 
From Chitty Chitty Bang Bang by Ian Fleming 
This is a delicious sounding crumbly fudge that could be purchased at the candy shop.

6. Frobscottle 
From the BFG by Roald Dahl
Frobscottle is a green-colored fizzy drink, where the bubbles go down instead of up.  This is the cause of Whizzpoppers (farts, of course I want to try this!). 

5. Snow Candy 
From: The Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder
I actually think we tried to make this once when I was younger... From what I remember, this is freshly made maple syrup drizzled over fresh snow, and wound around a small stick (like a lollipop or popsicle sick).

4. Cauldron Cakes
From: The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
I have to admit, I don't remember the description for these... but they're cakes so I bet they're awesome!

3. Fizzy Lifting Drinks
From: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Fizzy Lifting Drinks are a crazy concoction that actually lifts consumers off the ground! How fun would that be?!

2. Chocolate Frogs 
From: The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Who didn't want to try these after reading about them in the books?! I've tried a version of these before! They are quite tasty and come with a holographic card, but unfortunately they weren't in the awesome packaging like in the books & movies.

1. Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster 
From: The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
This is a highly alcoholic drink. While it is strong enough to burn a hole in the ground... It is often considered the "Best Drink in Existence." So as long as my body could handle it, I would love a sip! :)


Thanks for reading!
If you could try one fictional food, what would you choose?

  1. I would totally eat Swudge!! That sounds delicious. And anything from HP (you know, except booger flavored jelly beans, rock cakes, and anything Nearly-Headless Nick serves).

  5. Oh, the nostalgia feels come full circle for the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang feature. That film was re-watched time and again at my house when we were growing up. So fun! :)

  6. I had Cauldron Cakes on my list this week too! I personally didn't like Butterbeer, but my friends did, so I think it's kind of a marmite thing, you either love it or you hate it.

  10. The frozen butter beer is yummy, I wasn't a fan of the pumpkin juice though. There are some recipes online that came pretty close to the flavor. Swudge was a new sounding one, but love all your other choices.

    1. Yeah...something about the name "pumpkin juice" really makes me queasy haha!

  11. All of the food in Farmer Boy! Laura Ingalls Wilder books had the best food!

  12. This is an awesome list! I blanked out when I saw the topic, and I went with cookbooks :)

    Butter beer sounds like something I'd definitely drink ;)

    When I was homeschooling, I took my kids on a field trip to a rural museum at a homestead where they tap maple trees and make their own syrup. We got to pour the syrup on the snow and roll our own maple sugar stick and it was definitely the best treat!

    I'd also like to try the Turkish Delight from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!

    1. Cookbooks are a great idea!! I haven't checked into very many of those.

  13. What a fun list! I remember looking up recipes for Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters when I was younger, haha. I probably couldn't handle the real thing :P My version of this list would probably include a lot of the foods from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings - right now I'm thinking especially of Beorn's honey.

    1. Haha! That would be really neat if there was a Galaxy themed bar that made a speciality drink called that :)

  14. I love the idea of this post! I would basically like to try anything in the Roald Dahl books - they all sound so creative and delicious. I think I'd want to try pretty much anything at Wonka's factory.
