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 and Gold Slimes (the latter of which has no diet, but exclusively eats Gilded Ginger), 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.

Puddle Slimes and Fire Slimes are a special case; they consume Water and Ash, respectively.


  • Slimes can eat Plorts to induce a transformation into a Largo, or if already a Largo a Tarr, but Plorts are not considered food.
  • While Chickadoos are themselves not food, they do naturally grow up into the Hen of their type or a Roostro, which are.
  • The player, as well as almost all other Slimes, are considered food by Tarr.
