Quote from Scum
They're still redundant. And before you say: "Fine, they won't hurt you and they will give you Fire Protection and Speed" think about the concept of food for a sec, food doesn't give you magical abilities (except for golden apples, I don't know why they added that), potions do.
That's a good point, but this *is* food from hell. Now I agree, it shouldn't be any kind of major effect, but it could have a very minor one. Healing half a heart of health instead of hunger for instance.
