  • Tied with cranberry relish in giving the highest XP bonus effect of all food items, with a base 10% increase on any experience gained for one hour.
  • Positively affected by the carnivore mutation, doubling its experience gain effect from 10% to 20%, which can be further increased with the Strange in Numbers perk.
  • Due to requiring ingredients either found in small amounts like salt or looted off uncommonly-encountered squirrels, it is relatively harder to gather supplies to make compared to its Herbivore-based counterpart.
