Spellvok candy is candy made from unstable magical crystals found in the depths of submerged caverns
, known as spellvok
. Spellvok candy is created by crushing these crystals into a fine powder, and then mixing this powder with sugar and water. Some people choose to make this candy with saltwater instead of freshwater, which results in a bit more salty of a taste.
The candies taste like a salty and sweet candy, which is hard to bite into but has a sizzling, almost acidic, reaction to the tongue. It is known to leave glitter on the tongues of those eating it.
Eating spellvok candy will temporarily increase a person's capacity for magic. It is given to researchers or students working with magic, and is also sometimes given to people suffering mild symptoms due to an overuse of magic. It is an easy at-home remedy for some minor magical sicknesses, and it is very popular among children both for its taste and its sparkly appearance.
This candy holds cultural significance to the deep kuuyik
folk of the submerged caverns. They were the first group to create this candy, sensing the potential of the crystals for eating. This is one of few popular kuuyik foods that is edible to other species without major modification to ingredients and cooking techniques.
