|A particularly rich and golden gelatinous thing. A lump of the magical substance produced by giant bees to be fed to their queens.|
A royal jelly is a universally-appealing food item which provides 2,000 nutrition regardless of the consumer's Herbivore or Carnivore mutations. Although not quite so potent as a bread ration or meat ration, they can often be found in bulk when raiding killer bee vaults. Royal jelly takes 20 aut to consume, making it faster than eating rations or chunks when in peril.
