Multicandy Mod for Minecraft 1.7.2

Who doesn’t at least *like* candy?  I can understand growing to prefer salty food over the sweet sugary goodness that makes Halloween and Christmas the best holidays of the year, but I do not think I have ever met a person who simply disliked candy.  Shizaku of PlanetMinecraft certainly enjoys candy, and is the creator of the wonderful Multicandy mod!

Whether you are preparing your game for Halloween or gearing up for Christmas (or simply love candy…!), this mod is sure to deliver a variety of treats you can appreciate.  There are a total of 40 different candies added with this mod.  To name a few:

 

  • Candycanes

  • Candy corn

  • Easter bunny

  • Taffy

  • Lollipops

  • Rock candy

  • Gummy bears

  • Candy bars

  • Sweethearts

  • Jellybeans

  • Smores

  • M&Ms

  • Candy apples

  • Jawbreakers

  • Hershey Kisses

  • Rice Crispy Treats

  • Rainbow Cookies

 

As you can see, many holidays are covered in the list of festive candies, along with some holiday-neutral items.  There was a handy infographic of every recipe, but to be honest, it is poorly designed and makes my eyes bleed a little.  So instead for reference I will simply tell you that, for example, candycanes are made with sugar and a bucket of water.  Many recipes combine the candy found within the mod.

Aside from simply eating the candy, it can be used for decorative purposes.  Candy frames are absolutely adorable and are perfect for holidays.  Anyone up for making a gingerbread house?

My opinion on this mod: it is a simple mod that adds items as content.  Nothing more, nothing less.  As you may know, I am a fan of these mods, as they help add some diversity to the game without risking changing something fundamental.

 

What I would like to see in the future: more candy, some useful effects from candy, and possibly candy-related blocks.  Possibly also some recipe reworking to make all candy have a common base (in order to separate the mod’s recipes as a whole from vanilla Minecraft).
