Gourmet Foods - Not So Gourmet After All

by bookyalex

PET CENTRAL - As many of you have probably noticed, there is a Gourmet food competition going on, where if your pet eats a food with a rarity from 90 to 100, it gets a point, and once you get so many points, you get a trophy. Well, I was interested in maybe starting my striped Shoyru on it, and I was looking at what some of the people fed their pets. To put it bluntly, I was disgusted. To name a few, there was Fish Ice Cream, Smelly Sardine Wrap, Asparagus with cheese - okay, so maybe Adam likes that, but still, it's gross - various dinosaur limbs, and swill pudding. Don't you think that's just a little wrong, feeding your cute little pet a Neopet's limb, or swill pudding, with a description of "Just like Jelly, only made from dirty river water" just for a trophy? It's sick! The pet probably gets all bandaged and ill!

If you ask me, I think Neopets should make some more edible gourmet foods for your pet. Maybe fried squid - yes, I've eaten it - or New Meridell Clam Chowder, maybe some salami and Swiss cheese rolls. Something you yourself would eat. Was the Neopets team bored, and couldn't think of any gourmet foods?

Anyway, let me lecture people now. All of you people who have fed your pet this garbage, you should be ashamed of yourself! Remember, this is Neopets, not Neotrophies. How would you like it if you came home from school, and sitting on the table was a nice juicy snake taco, or brain kebab? Now I'm not saying all gourmet foods are bad. The crepes and cakes and such are okay, but honestly, would you really want to eat octopus ice cream? Sure, octopus might taste nice, but would you want it in your ice cream?

And don't say that Neopets aren't real, so it doesn't matter. The whole point of this site is to have fun with your pets, not show them off along with the rest of your account! When I first joined, there were only half as many items, if that, and tons of cool stuff that is gone now (laptop, model horse, Switch-A-Roo, etc.), so you had more time to actually go to the games room and play some hide and Kacheek. However, that's another story (hopefully).

I also hate those crystal foods! Have you seen the descriptions? "Will knock your teeth out!" Ew! You'll be getting a lot of visits from the tooth fairy if you feed your pet that. Not that I don't admit to feeding my pet some weird stuff. My Cybunny used to love exotic plants, and my Shoyru likes half-eaten berry (bleugh! I don't think so!), but that's not nearly as bad as a chocolate duck rump!

Now, here is what I think some real gourmet foods are ( not nearly enough room for all of them!):

Meridell Clam Chowder
Calamari (fried squid)
Salami and Swiss cheese roll
Dutch Apple Pie
French Silk Pie (my favourite!)
Tigersquash ice cream cake

Just think about people who have bothered to read this far, and don't just feed your pet some gross food for a trophy. It's cruel!
