Purple sweets detail.png

Purple sweets are a stackable food item that are earned from all levels of treasure trails. Purple sweets are the only stackable food item in the game, restoring 1-3 hitpoints and 10% run energy per sweets eaten.

Purple sweets are commonly used by players aiming to get a Fire Cape from defeating TzTok-Jad since a large stack can serve as an effectively infinite source of healing. They are also often used by players attempting endurance record at bosses.

It should be noted that players cannot eat purple sweets in the Inferno; attempting to do so results in the message: "The heat of the inferno causes the wrapper to stick to the sweet. You cannot see anyway[sic] to open it.". The sweets will not be destroyed when attempting this.


  • In the quest Gertrude's Cat, when asked what he wanted in return for information on Fluffs, Gertrude's sons Shilop and Wilough complain about how expensive "sweets" are compared to chocolate.
  • Since purple sweets can stack, they heal more hitpoints per inventory slot than any other item, limited only by the amount of purple sweets the player has and the 2,147,483,647 limit of items that a stack can contain. 2,147,483,647 purple sweets means you can heal up to 6,442,450,941 hitpoints. It would also require 10,934,986,730,524 coins to purchase the maximum stack of sweets. (This is assuming there are even this many in the game.)
