God Cooks and Alchemists have a special niche: besides devising divine dishes and potions, they can also create unique candies that permanently increase stats:
- **Cook** : Strength, Vitality and Dexterity Candy
- **Alchemist** : Intelligence, Focus and Luck Candy
How Candies Work
Each candy increases the corresponding stat by 1 point when consumed; for example, a Strength Candy will increase your Strength by 1 point.
You can craft as many candies as you want (so long as you have the materials), but before you go build a candy-making factory, there are a few things to bear in mind.
Altogether, you can only eat a combined total of 100 candies. So you may eat 50 Strength and 50 Vitality Candies, for instance, but after that you can eat no more.
Furthemore, the stat points gained from eating candies cannot surpass the stat limit (50 before entering Origin Island; 100 afterwards).
Finally, the effects of candies are permanent and irreversible, so be careful before you start stuffing your faces! This applies even if you reset your stats via the Tome of Shadows or Demonic Mirror.
That said, there are no adverse effects of eating candies and you cannot truly mess up your stat distribution. But if you want to be safe, we suggest eating around 16 of each type of candy for an even stat distribution.
Cooking Your Candies
Candies are pretty amazing, so you shouldn't be surprised to learn the ingredients to make them will require a fair amount of effort to acquire.

By the way, you don't actually need to collect hundreds of ingredients to make 100 candies; if you're decently quick with your crafting, you will make 4 candies (rather than 1) per crafting process.
So you only need to collect, say, 25 apples instead of 100. That said, you still need to collect 75 Divine Pods, which will probably take you a while... Oh well, one step at a time!
