Dragon Quest slimes are edible and they taste like lime


How would you prepare one?

PAX is well underway in Seattle this weekend and one of the highlights for attendees was the Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition panel put on by Nintendo in promotion of the upcoming game. The panel covered a wide variety of topics including the team's desire to combine the two versions of the game released in Japan into a single package. That's all well and good, but my particular favorite piece of info from the panel was this:

Dragon Quest slimes are edible...and they taste like lime. It makes sense that you can eat these things as they're so numerous in every Dragon Quest game, but the fact they taste like lime instead of, say, a Tide POD has me curious about what the other slimes taste like. Does a heal slime taste like strawberry? Does an angel slime taste like banana? Does a gold slime taste like snozzberry? Do the bad egg, muddy slime, and mottle she-slime combine to make some DQ version of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans? 

Too many questions, too many possible flavor combinations. Whatever the rest of those slimes taste like, all this talk of edible sentient creatures has me hungry for some fruit salad. Dragon Quest XI S releases for Nintendo Switch on September 27.
