So, apparently everyone in town received some Christmas gifts in Die2Nite, including a Utility Belt, a Letter With no Address, and a vial of Suspicious Looking Plum Juice. Now, I do love Plum Juice dearly, so normally I'd just quaff it in one go, but a few things are stopping me.

  • There is a little skull and crossbones in the icon for the Juice - It matches the one in the icon for Poison. Hmmm...
  • I was warned, as was everyone else involved in the game a few days beforehand with the following: "Don't drink the Plum Juice!"

Does anyone know definitively what the Plum Juice does?

Here is some information and speculation from a current member of my town:

Apparently it does absolutely nothing, according to the forums, making it really only useful for cooking meals?

I think, unless it's a joke by the developers, that it has a delayed effect, maybe giving you an infection in a night or two. This way they'd trap the most people into drinking it.

Given a hero with a kitchen, it can be "cooked" into a delicious meal with 100% success rate. That food can be eaten with no ill effects... so far.

As for eating before cooked, I haven't been in a position where I was OK with dying so I haven't tried it out.
