MechanicsEditThe Food Bar appears under every pet that has not yet grown into a mount and tracks its progress towards doing so. After being hatched for the first time, a pet starts with 10% of the bar filled. The bar fills by a certain amount each time the pet is fed. Preferred foods fill the Food Bar much faster (10% per item) than non-preferred foods (4% per item). Therefore, it takes 9 preferred foods or 23 non-preferred foods for a pet to grow into a mount.
Specific Preferred FoodsEdit
Each pet that is hatched from a standard potion has a preference for a certain food. As described above, when fed with their preferred food, pets will turn into mounts much faster than with non-preferred food.
Take a look at the colors of the pet and food.
|Hatching Potions||Food Preference||Cake Preference||Candy Preference|
|Base||Meat||Basic Cake||Basic Candy|
|White||Milk||Cream Cake||Vanilla Candy|
|Desert||Potato||Sand Cake||Sand Candy|
|Red||Strawberry||Strawberry Cake||Cinnamon Candy|

|Zombie||Rotten Meat||Rotten Cake||Rotten Candy|
|Cotton Candy Pink||Pink Cotton Candy||Candy Pink Cake||Sour Pink Candy|

Known Bugs Edit
iOS Client Does Not Describe Some Food Preferences Correctly
|Description:||When users feed a premium pet (a Magic Potion pet or Royal Purple pet), the iOS app incorrectly displays a message that the pet does not like the food.|
|Solution:||No workaround is required - a premium pet will still evolve to a mount after being fed nine pieces of any food.|
