"The rock cakes almost broke their teeth."— Harry's and Ron's opinion on Hagrid's rock cakesBut Aunt Petunia didn't know what was hidden under the loose floorboard upstairs. She had no idea that Harry was not following the diet at all. The moment he had gotten wind of the fact that he was expected to survive the summer on carrot sticks, Harry had sent Hedwig to his friends with pleas for help, and they had risen to the occasion magnificently. Hedwig had returned from Hermione's house with a large box stuffed full of sugar-free snacks. (Hermione's parents were dentists.) Hagrid, the Hogwarts gamekeeper, had obliged with a sack full of his own homemade rock cakes.(Harry hadn't touched these; he had too much experience of Hagrid's cooking.)-Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire paperback page 28.
