Joy Candy.

Candy, sometimes referred to as sweets, is a kind of food item for Piñatas. Piñatas add candy, and they need it inside to live. However, the world of Viva Piñata offers up more than a sort of confection for our papery chums. Most are goods, but red-colored ones, such as Sour Candy, are bad for Piñatas.

Happy Candy

Happy Candy.

The main essential of any subject for a piñata's life, Happy Candy helps give your piñata the extra boost they need to be at their whole jolly.

Joy Candy

Like happy candy, Joy Candy aids your piñata destress and stay happy. As the happy candy's big brother, feed one to your piñata and their problems will melt away. Use it as a unique treat for your favorite piñata or to convince your depressed piñata to stay, or, in Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise, use it to instantaneously make it have enough candiosity to send it to a party.

Romance Candy

Romance Candy.

A trick-up for any seasoned gardener's sleeve is the Romance Candy. Giving your piñata this candy will fulfill their romantic conditions, except for the privacy given by a home. However, you'll need to have fun flirting them the tough way at least once before the candy will work.

Sour Candy

Sour Candy.

Not all candy is sweet and tasty. Some are fully gross and bad for your piñata's health. Eating a single Sour Candy is enough to make piñata instantly ill! They are dropped by Ruffians and Sour Piñata. If you find them in your garden, you should hit them and call Doc Patchingo before Dastardos comes to kill any sick piñatas.

Smelly Candy

Smelly Candy.

Despite looking the same as a sour candy, Smelly Candy is really a candy that causes Piñatas to run away because of revolting smell. They will not eat this candy, so don't worry about Piñatas getting sick unless there are real sour candies in your garden.

Life Candy

A Whirlm Life Candy as seen in the Journal.

The only candy that cannot be purchased, Life Candy is that special candy inside each piñata that gives it its spark. This is what the predator piñatas are after. Individual predator piñatas will eat specific life candy.

This candy looks a bit different out of each piñata. For example, a Bunnycomb's life sweet is colored blue.

Only resident piñata can drop life candy. A life candy's value is worth the value of that piñata. This is a good opportunity to selling the piñata, as you also get the candy that usually drops, and sell it along with the life candy for maximum profit.
