My favorite food by far is now carrots.  They are so useful, relatively easy to get, produce large quantities, and restore 2 bars.  Since they have been in I seriously haven't touched any other food source.  Anyone else think they're so great?  I mean compared to other foods, there is no work involved hardly.

How're they so useful? o_o They're basically wheat, but you can breed pigs and you can't make bread with it. I guess the fishing rod with the carrot is kinda cool, but that's more of a novelty thing.

Farmer villagers never want to trade emeralds for 'em either.

My posts will always have typos and that fact will always drive me crazy.

Well it takes 3 wheat to make bread, which is only half a bar more. Then when you break wheat it only gives you 1 to 2 wheat while carrots always give 2 to 3.  So basically they produce twice as much. And each one is edible, so you don't have to combine them.

Oh that's pretty cool then. c:

Personally I still prefer wheat though. It looks really pretty growing in my texture pack and I can trade villagers with it.

And I love breeding my cows. <3

There is also the ability to turn them into golden carrots and make potions of night vision and invisibility.

I prefer taters, only because they restore more bars and they are produced in great quantities.

I should try using them to eat sometimes. The only time I ever tried to grow a carrot was so that I could control my piggy.
Pssh! Signatures are for chumps!

since they nerfed villager trading, wheat is a better crop. it can be traded directly, or used to breed cows, who give trade-able beef and leather, necessary for books.
i use carrots to breed pigs to trade as well, but i noticed they can be a good food source.

Yeah I've thought about this too. Carrots are really good actually, easy to make, fills the hunger bar fairly much. Posted Image

Cake is a pain in the balls though, way to much work.  Also potatoes are bad to turn poisonous and don't restore as many bars as a carrot unless you cook them, which takes time and resources. I'm gonna turn orange from eating all these carrots.

And they say it is good for your eyes. So maybe in the future your avatar won't be needing those glasses anymore ;)

Quite fitting that they added a potion for night vision, since carrots are supposed to be good for your vision!

I find my self eating carrots a lot in game too, they are just... easy to grow easy to get. instant food!

Carrots are a good food source once you get a nice farm going, but they're really hard to get without a Village.
