Lightbulb HOW TO: Get the MOST pet food value for your kinz cash $$$$$$

*CHECK OUT MARSHMALLOWCAT'S POST (#5) FOR ADDITIONAL HELPFUL INFORMATION!*

Hi everyone!

I
found a VERY helpful and informative chart showing the hunger, health, and happiness boost for each of the foods sold at the W-shop.

There's also a column which gives the comparative value of each food (calculated by dividing the cost by the total of the three boost numbers).

Although it's interesting to look at the comparative values,
I find it much more helpful to look at the individual boost columns. The information they provide helps me to determine which foods will give my pets what they need most.

For example, if a pet is happy and healthy, but getting a bit hungry a bowl of white rice for 5 kc provides a hunger boost of 7. Compare this to a bowl of ramen noodles which costs 10 kc for the same 7 point boost.

I've found that keeping a supply of asparagus and rice on hand is a very economical way to take care of my pets' health and nutrition needs. I also try to watch for healthy foods that might be on sale. Then I'll stock up on them as well. Shrimp and nacho chips were recently on sale and they're great foods for your pet.

For a quick happiness boost I go to Quizzy' Corner and answer a few questions. Your pet's happiness increases one point for every one to two questions you answer!

The web site where I found the > chart < is called "Unofficial Information, Recipes, Hints & Tips".

To see the chart, click on the word "chart"
in the previous sentence or paste this link into your browser's address window:
http://elubin.com/webkins/foods.asp

If you have a lot of pets to feed, the information in this chart could help you save a lot of kinz cash!

I hope this is helpful!

You're welcome! And many thanks for your "rep-ly "!

The chart is a big help for comparing foods. I saved it to a doc file on my hard drive and then highlighted the information that was most helpful to me. I usually look at just the hunger and health columns to see what foods will give the biggest boost for the money. When my pets need a happiness boost I give them a bubble bath. That always gets them smiling again!

Great info Meadowlark..thanks for finding that!

I have taken the data and done some further calculations to show the value of the food in terms of hunger boost only. (Cuz really I think Health and Happy are pretty easy to keep up since there are other ways besides food to boost these.) The file is attached and it's the last column that shows the cost per hunger point...sorted to show best value first. (Also, I took out farm fresh (free food) and foods with no hunger boost so it makes more sense.)

To summarize, the best hunger boosts for your kinzcash are:
  1. White Rice = 0.71 KC per hunger point
  2. Asparagus = 1 KC per hunger point
  3. Macaroni & Cheese = 1.11 KC per hunger point
  4. Baked Potato = 1.17 KC per hunger point
  5. Bread = 1.17 KC per hunger point
  6. Fish Sticks = 1.2 KC per hunger point
  7. Pickles = 1.2 KC per hunger point
  8. Burger = 1.2 KC per hunger point
The least value foods (in terms of hunger boost) are:
  1. Marshmallows = no hunger boost
  2. Vitamins = no hunger boost
  3. Fudge = 7 KC per hunger point
  4. Strawberries = 6 KC per hunger point
  5. Root Beer = 5 KC per hunger point
  6. Peppermints = 5 KC per hunger point
  7. Toffee = 5 KC per hunger point
  8. Chocolate Pudding = 5 KC per hunger point
  9. Super Mega Toothbuster = 5 KC per hunger point
