Food refers to all items that Slimes can eat, which in turn produces plorts which can be sold on the Plort Market for Newbucks or deposited into the Refinery for Slime Science. With the exception of Hens and Roostros, if food is left outside uneaten they will turn rotten and eventually disappear, and rotten food will immediately disappear when trying to vac it up. Food can be broken up into 3 main types:
Fruit; which are found on trees
Veggies; which are found growing in soil
and Meat; Hens and Roostros found by nests.
With the exception of Pink Slimes, Slimes exclusively eat food in the same type as its favourite food; for example a Honey Slime's favourite food is Mint Mango and only eats fruit. Slimes can be converted to Largo Slimes which can have two favorite foods instead of one and potentially expand its diet to another food type. A Slime or Largo eating a favoured food will produce double the normal amount of Plorts.
