There are so many mods out there which add food items to Minecraft that they really tend to be the same once you’ve seen a handful. They can dress up foods, give them different names and make the recipes use different ingredients, but at the end of the day it’s still just filling a hunger meter and slowly regenerating health. That is unless you use the Insane Foods mod, which adds a number of interesting special effects to go along with the strange new foods contained in the mod. You get a variety of new tools and ingredients for creating those foods too, so there’s a lot to get acquainted with.
The only issue with the Insane Foods mod is that it’s still in alpha. That means the current version isn’t exactly playable, and errors, bugs, glitches and crashes are all still commonplace with this mod. If that sounds frustrating, it is. But if you can work around those not infrequent interruptions, what you’ll get is a pretty interesting food mod – probably one of the better ones for Minecraft, even if it isn’t finished yet. To be fair though, there’s nothing really insane about the food effects yet. They are, for the most part, all normal potion effects.
The fact you can get a speed boost from eating a donut or jump super high by having a salad does make the Insane Foods mod a little crazy, maybe. But that’s about it. There are different foods from different parts of the world, and the updates all seem to be named after types of cuisine, like The European Update, or The Burger Update, which was the most recent iteration of the mod. Right now it would be unwise to use the Insane Foods mod for multiplayer environments since it’s so buggy, but it works fairly well when playing alone.
