Chia Day Roundup
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on February 21, 2023, 4:43 pm NST

To celebrate a belated Chia Day, two new colours are available:

Silver | Sroom

For those well-versed in their Brightvale Fruits, you may notice that the new Chia fruit is based on the Sroom Fruit:

And you'll be able to get one by feeding your Chia one of these new magical Chia pops:

If your Chia's into gardening, this outfit may be for them:

And last but not least, a Chia Chai Latte is now available:

Silver is Silver. Nothing really special about it, nothing really to say about it.

I do love me some mushroom aesthetics, though, and I love the new little Mushroom Chia! Not enough to get one of my own, but it's still one of the better colors we've seen lately.

Clothing set is fine, I guess?? Just think the hat looks a little weird, and the way it's holding the basket kind of bothers me.

Again no Royal Chia

That Sroom Chia's body shape is JUST different enough that I feel like they should've just stuck to just the mushroom cap and let it wear normal clothes. At least we got a non-fruit this year.

Silver Chia:
It's a Silver Chia.

Sroom Chia:
A nice choice for the Food Chia. There's no normal mushroom Chia so this covers the basis of both a real food they haven't covered but a Neopian version of it. Still waiting on that Marrow Chia.

Gardener Chia:
I think all the flowers on the shirt and pants is a bit overdoing it, but otherwise alright. I think the hat and basket will probably be more popular and separately used than the clothes.

They really have something against Banana Chia, don't they?

LOVE the basket, but sad fruit and veggie chias can't wear it.

Love the Sroom. Wow. So cute.

The outfit is cute too, but silver is meh. However, in its defense it would be a good base for customization.

@ Ummy:
Well if they continue doing the pattern of Food Chia we've seen, it won't be "banana" but either a Zeenana or Banan.

I absolutely adore the Sroom Chia.
biediep, February 21, 2023 9:37 PM NST
Man.. It's cool that we got two colors and the "Sroom" is kinda funny but I was really hoping for a Banana Chia.

I wonder if TNT was "popping" some "magic mushrooms" when dreaming up this design I like it, it's neat. I know it's a Chia thing (and a shroom thing), but personally I would have liked it better without the "hair" on top. Doesn't quite look right to me.

The gardener outfit is rather boring, especially when compared to other outfits we've seen recently. The basket is nice in design, a fun idea... but the Chia is holding it weirdly...

We're never gonna get Royal Chias, are we?
roshchodesh, February 22, 2023 6:17 AM NST
SHROOM not Sroom. Oh my goodness, who is in charge?
roshchodesh, February 22, 2023 6:18 AM NST
2005. Nevermind.

Pretty certain it's styled after the Sroom Fruit (a neopets item).
galifan, February 22, 2023 11:09 PM NST
Yep, it's a Sroom Fruit. Tasty. I had a spare Fountain Pass so I adopted a Chia, gave it a dip and then stuffed it in this month's collectable 'cause I don't have a soup cauldron. Does that mean I like the new colour, or was I just hangry?
kisha, February 23, 2023 7:07 AM NST
I really like the mushroom Chia. I wish we could customise it...
claytonskitten, February 26, 2023 7:43 AM NST
Okay, I need a Shroom Chia with that gardening outfit STAT.

... and I lowkey want another Pepper Chia again. #firstworldNeopetsProblems
