Upon eating it, the taste is a bit bland but also oddly tasty and it will cause you to reminisce about your most heart warming memory as well as your trauma, sometimes causing you to cry. You reminisce on your goal, on your motivation, and your past, why you are where you are, and it helps push your forward, leaving the trauma behind as a past memory with your new found resolve
