i also vote for anything and everything anyone ate on the faraway tree or in any of the lands they happened to find themselves in (another enid blyton creation) - remember the pop biscuits??!! :D and hot/cold goodies and toffee shocks and google buns. and slippery slide.. don't forget the slippery slide. and the squirrel that asked for the cushions back.

i think it's annoying how political correctness had to go and change the names of the kids. annoyed at that.

i'd forgotten all about pop biscuits! i also think the meal mrs beaver served up to peter, susan, edmund and lucy in the lion, the witch and the wardrobe deserves a mention.

A few years ago I bought a reprint of The mountain of adventure, on of the first Enid Blyton books I had read as a child, and on re-reading as an adult was struck by the food scenes, which I hardly noticed as a child.
