  • Consuming this from your inventory spawns the black pudding monster approximately 35% of the time. However, consuming from Chez Snootée in Little Canadia does not seem to spawn the monster.
  • Eating a black pudding requires one adventure, but the adventure is only used if you enter into combat with your meal.
  • If you have no adventures, you will be told "You don't have time to properly enjoy a black pudding right now."
  • If you are Beaten Up, you will be told, "You're way too beaten up to enjoy a black pudding right now. Because they're tough to chew. Yeah."
  • Combat can still be initiated when eating this food while falling-down drunk.
  • If you are attempting to permanently unlock Bad Moon, make sure that your Black Cat is your familiar when consuming this, in case this becomes a combat adventure.


  • The "acidic underground-dwelling scavenging ooze" refers to the Dungeons & Dragons black pudding monster, an amorphous blob which roams caves and sewers and absorbs and digests whatever (or whomever) it finds.
  • It also refers to the strategy within NetHack of pudding farming, which involves repeatedly dividing and killing black puddings for stats.
