brachot 44

the fruit that is so sweet it can drive the rabbis insane, sweat profusely, make their hair fall out, and yet they will want to eat more and more and more....

and the simple small whole salted fish that will restore the soul

(discussion about salty food, led to a description of drug-like sweet figs. In a separate discussion about the blessing on vegetables, list of food that can harm or heal the body. for english translation of this talmud page see here)
