Hors D'oeuvres An appetizer for the feast of a lifetime.

1
A consumable snack that lets you sense things humans cannot.
Used by Shelby Whitset, Created by BepisBoi69.

A small, square shortbread cookie, no bigger than one's eye. It tastes of nothing, with a texture so unremarkable it's hard to remember finishing the cookie. When consumed, it clears any lingering scents or flavors and grants the ability to enjoy meals as they truly are, unbound by the pathetic limits of human sensory organs.

These cookies do have a taste- it simply happens to be... nothing. The absence of intensity. It is a cultivated emptiness, like the negative space in a painting- deliberate, guiding the mind and senses to the things all around the cookie. They are bland, mildly pleasant in no identifiable way. Additionally, they do not trigger any known allergies or food sensitivities- whatever they are, they're gluten free and hypoallergenic.
