Anyone feel that there's not really much to oak, birch, and pine forests except wood? Anyone feel like they want something to drink besides water? Here is a solution.

Berry Bushes: Berry bushes would be slightly common in oak, birch, pine forest bioms.  Berries can be used as a food source, to make juice, and poison. There would be about 4 different kinds of berries.

Strawberries: Common and spawn in all forests (except jungle). They restore 1 hunger bar. They cannot be made in juice or poison, but their bushes drops more. Bush drops 4-9 berries. Strawberries are the generic and most basic berry.

Blueberries: Less common than strawberries. They restore 2 bars of hunger and make blue berry juice. They cannot be used to make poison. They spawn in oak forests. Bush drops 3-6 berries.

Raspberries: Less common than Blueberries. They restore 4 hunger bars and make raspberry juice. They cannot be used in poison. Can be made into a blue raspberry by dyeing it. They spawn in birch, oak forests. Bush drops 3-5 berries.

Deadly Nightshade Berries: Rare. They damage you 6 health bars and poison you. They can be made into strong poisons. They are only found in birch forests. Bush drops 1-4 berries.

Juices.

Juice is made by crafting berries with bowls. It takes 3 berries on top (they can be mixed) and a bowl in the middle of the crafting grid.

Blueberry Juice: Blueberry juice is made with 3 blueberries and restores 4 hunger and 1 health.

Raspberry Juice: Made with 3 raspberries and restores 5 hunger and 2 health.

Berry-Blend Juice: Berry-Blend is a special juice that is made from a combination of any berries. All effects are the same. Berry type doesn't matter. Berry-Blend restores 6 hunger and 3 health.

Nightshade Poison: Crafted with 3 Deadly nightshade berries and a glass bottle this creates a powerful poison (poison 3) and it can be thrown, poured onto food, or into a water bottle, or other juice.

Berry bushes can be picked up. To get the bush you must destroy it while holding shears. If you don't you only get 1 berry and the bush is gone. Berry bushes are harvested with shears. The berry bush will empty and the berries will grow back 3 days later.

If you have any questions or comments be sure to comment.
Enjoy.

Getting drunk off of wine would probably not be the smartest thing to add to the game, as that could rope in some bad reception for a game that is targeted for pretty much all ages. Though the berries alone are alright.
Hey, you there. Yes, you! Are you thinking about posting a suggestion on the forums anytime soon? If so, please read this before doing so.

Adding berries to the game wouldn't be bad in my opinion, but you should scale back the suggestion to be more in-line with existing MC conventions.

Instead of four types of berries, just make one generic berry. Also, instead of making wine, have it make juice. You might not think that's a big deal, but there's ESRB stuff involved in making alcohol drinks and since this games is played by a lot of younger players, I think it's best/easiest to just keep it a juice in vanilla.

Pretty cool idea. It adds more to the game nature wise. What would be the purpose of the night shade potion? No one would drink it because they would see that it was nightshade.

I agree with this. When a game has alcohol in it it drops the rating of the game. So maybe change the wine to juice. And you could add one nightshade berry with the juice to hide it. This would allow it to be more deceptive as a poison. It would be slightly changed in color so if you knew what the actual juice looked like you would know not to drink it. (similar to the differences between a chest and trapped chest)

Deadly Nightshade can be used to poison food, water, and is throw-able. I also changed wine to juice. The nausea affect will still happen because if anyone has ever chugged a bottle of juice...

You have to remember this, you can chug down 10 water bottles in minecraft in under 5 minutes.
So, nausea wouldnt make sense.

Its not your personality who makes you who you are, its your DNA.

I don't think there should be so many different types of berries but only 2- poisonous berries and plain berries. However I like the idea of adding more things to drink.

Good ideas, I know people have suggested berries before but this looks promising nonetheless. Hmmm, I wonder if I can throw in another berry idea. Grapes are berries too because they fall under the botanical definition of being a fleshy fruit produced from a single ovary. So you could have some vines produce bunches of grapes that can be harvested as normal. You can either eat them fresh or press them into grape juice (I agree that the moral guardians would likely be against wine, though if grapes and grape juice do make it in, you can probably use a mod to brew the latter into wine).

I really like this idea! However, I think that just using them for juice and poison isn't enough. Why not use strawberries for another red dye with a different shade? As for blueberries, their juice could be used to lower the duration of potion effects when you drink it. Rasberries could be used for something else.

Yay! A decent berry suggestion! :D

I was going to suggest this, but I'm happy I used the search bar. This is a really good idea!
