Not a fan of the candy color...

I might just have to get that. I love nerds ropes.
mavegibson, March 6, 2023 2:37 PM NST
As a Nerds Ropes lover, I approve of this color.

The cupcake is AMAZING, and the smoke outfit is so creative (although impractical). All of these interesting, unusual outfits are cool but would be more fun if they could be worn with other customization items rather than taking up all the primary zones.

Big miss on the color. Too bad because they've been cool lately
purplebin, March 6, 2023 3:01 PM NST
It's too bad Nerds come in such an ugly combination of colors.

Candy Gelert:
Looks like someone on the art team likes the new Nerd Gummy Clusters.
I'm kind of mixed, I like the idea, but not sure about both the presentation and the Neopet chosen. Sadly Kiko and Jubjub have already been done and they would have been the perfect choice. However, I notice Chia still needs Candy so think they could have saved it for them. As for what candy I would have made the Gelert, well I was thinking licorice but than they did licorice for the Eyrie. I suppose they could have done the Twizzlers's Pull & Peel version (they could have also made it a combination of different colors).
Well, we're given what we get, and while I would have liked more candy covering, I also thank them for making the candy pieces wearable parts so they can be removed and placed on other Gelerts.

Smoke Gelert:
Ugh, if smoke is coming from your eyes you may want to see a doctor.
I don't care for it, I feel it's a bit too overdone and would be hard to see.
inkpot, March 6, 2023 5:16 PM NST
Me here just wanting more candy colors like the candy kougra. Uuuugh
dustin, March 6, 2023 6:25 PM NST
Immediately recognizing the gelert as a nerds rope was enough for me. I like it! And I like the candy scattered on the ground, that's a nice subtle little change. Love these candy colors much more than the typical old swirl style.
contessa, March 6, 2023 6:43 PM NST
I don't like it, looks like he feels sticky
peppermint, March 6, 2023 6:47 PM NST
I... can't approve of that candy color.. it doesn't say "Mmm Yummy Candy!" It says "Ugh..painful skin condition"
contessa, March 6, 2023 6:55 PM NST
LOL yes I agree with Peppermint!
khaytra, March 6, 2023 7:10 PM NST
Is it just me, or has there been an uptick lately in outfits that are essentially paint brush clothes without actually *being* a PB colour? I could easily see the smoke outfit being expanded as a full colour option, honestly
darella, March 6, 2023 7:35 PM NST
I don't know why they keep trying to recreate specific candy brands... They know not everyone who plays Neopets is American, right? Not the first time I had to google whatever this was supposed to be.
galifan, March 6, 2023 8:42 PM NST
Pulparindo Mazapan! Joyva marble! Baklava, Turkish Delight, Pocky, Haw flakes, and Mukhwas!
ducky - JN Staff, March 6, 2023 11:37 PM NST
The candy bits are at least wearable, so base colour is interesting.

As for outfit,I'll just leave this year

In my dream smoke followed me
As on fire the whole world had been
To the yard I walked in
Up the frontstep and opened the door

Cranes flew over to the North
As I walked on dry
And passed through a grove
Yellow with flowers

They had been expecting me
They said so and I believed
I'm my dream smoke came to me
And we became as one

I am smoke
apophis324, March 7, 2023 12:42 AM NST
Oh no, the Scourgies are back! Quick, grab a containment unit and prepare the hot soup!
Wait, this is supposed to be candy? ... Yuck.

The smoke, to me, looks weird. If you like it, props to you. To me it looks like there is either too much smoke, or not enough. Having a smoke entity Gelert could be cool, but it doesn't quite look right to me. Maybe it's because of the weird direction of the smoke coming from the ears? And why does this canine need claws? Those look weird as well. Move those claw-bits a couple of centimeters to the left and have them as toe-contours instead
contessa, March 7, 2023 2:23 AM NST
galifan - the only ones I know about are Turkish Delight and Pocky. OMG Pocky! I discovered those on a trip to Vancouver over a decade ago from friends there who told me about it and I an still a fan. Thank goodness it is widely available in the US grocery stores now, or at least down South anyway
runie, March 7, 2023 3:28 AM NST
I like that they're going outside the box with some of these outfits, I think the candy feels a little too bare though what a shame.
roshchodesh, March 7, 2023 6:43 AM NST
Joyca Marble! My favourite Chag Purim Sameach!
zaitoutau, March 7, 2023 7:30 AM NST
Listen I don't wanna be rude but that colour immediately makes me think of a child on Halloween covered in sticky candy because they got too overzealous as they opened their box of Nerds.
zaitoutau, March 7, 2023 7:32 AM NST
Also to add on to my previous comment it reminds me heavily of the 2011 April Fools Prank with the Scourgies. As if it's making a much more colourful comeback.
roshchodesh, March 7, 2023 10:30 AM NST
you dropped something... things
invader_of_worlds, March 7, 2023 10:31 AM NST
neat candy idea bout soo poorly done cant say I am a huge fan of the outfit
galifan, March 7, 2023 1:44 PM NST
Hamantaschen don't quite qualify as candy, but they're lovely all the same. Especially Apricot. Purim Allegre!
sacanth, March 7, 2023 3:22 PM NST
Mix and match: https://impress-2020.openneo.net/outfits/2787276
roshchodesh, March 7, 2023 4:19 PM NST
Poppy seed and prune @galifan
roshchodesh, March 7, 2023 4:44 PM NST
The Smoke actually made me think of afghan hounds running the ring at the dog show.

@sacanth - so cool! so very cool!!!!
1jediboy, March 7, 2023 5:00 PM NST
Looking at all the Biscuit pets remaining, the best bet for there to be an "exceptional-design Biscuit" would be the Ogrin, the Blumaroo, the Moehog or the Vandagyre!

Flotsams, Peophins and Lutari are aquatic/semi aquatic pets, so the shortbread would disintegrate. (Yes, I'm ignoring the fact that the Jetsam and Koi come in Biscuit.)
claytonskitten, March 9, 2023 9:02 AM NST
That candy either needs MORE of the color, or eliminated altogether. They could have made a licorice gelert and didn't. Huge missed opportunity.
breezydreams, March 10, 2023 11:30 AM NST
My Gelerts are all standing with their noses in corners of the rooms.

Cuddling the too-realistic Gelert-head picks from the cupcakes.

A couple are eying the smoke clouds with curious dread.

It could have been Chinese blown sugar. A Western sugar mold. Royal frosting. A mosaic of tiny hard candies. A giant, shiny hard candy. White chocolate with pastel trim--even in decor bits.

Still, its treated like a Color and an outfit. The Color is... a nice shade of Irish Setter, maybe. If Brown and Christmas met one day....
breezydreams, March 10, 2023 2:24 PM NST
Irish setter is nice.

They could have made Rottweiler Chocolate fudge with Peanut Butter fudge markings....
