I chose lembas because it always seemed somehow mystical to me. In my imagination, it's a crispy wafer that tastes of almonds and something greenly indescribable, like an exotic tea.

Yum. Cool

Though I confess to contemplating the Orc draught which I figured might taste like a fusion of yeigermeister and skunk beer. Wink

Lembas would be great for backpacking trips!

Lembas. [In reply to] Can't Post

Runner-ups would include: Beorn's honey cakes, Dorwynion wine, Hobbittish ale (in pints!), and Ent-draughts (surprised that you missed those).

The ultimate comfort food! Although, lembas would be handy to have when traveling.

Something different and delicious every morning?! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hobbit elevenses, please! (I assume you mean we get to eat it every day for the rest of our lives?)
Scones and jam, seed cake, berry pie, nut torts, muffins, turnovers! And I'll have tea with that, thanks very much.Smile

Earth-bread [In reply to] Can't Post

But when they were cooked these roots proved good to eat, somewhat like bread; and the outlaws were glad of them, for they had long lacked bread save when they could steal it. "Wild Elves know them not; Grey-elves have not found them; the proud ones from over the Sea are too proud to delve," said Mīm.
"What is their name?" said Tśrin. Mīm looked at him sidelong. "They have no name, save in the Dwarf-tongue, which we do not teach," he said. "And we not teach Men to find them, for Men are greedy and thriftless, and would not spare till all the plants had perished; whereas now they pass them by as they go blundering in the wild. No more will you learn of me; but you may have enough of my bounty, as long as you speak fair and do not spy or steal." Then again he laughed in his throat. "They are of great worth." he said. "More than gold in the hungry winter, for they may be hoarded like the nuts of a squirrel, and already we were building our store from the first that are ripe.
