History[edit]

Yoshi's Cookie[edit]

Yoshi Cookies from the NES (top), Game Boy (middle) and SNES (bottom) versions of Yoshi's Cookie.

In their debut title Yoshi's Cookie, a puzzle game, Yoshi Cookies enter from either the top or side of the screen as Mario, dressed as a baker, pulls a lever. The plot of the game, in a fashion similar to Tetris or Dr. Mario, is to clear them out as Mario continues to fill the screen with more cookies. This done by pressing the A button and shifting an entire row of cookies. Once a row is, either horizontally or vertically, filled with the same kind of cookie, it is cleared from the screen. The Yoshi-shaped cookie acted like any kind of cookie.

Super Mario-Kun[edit]

In volume 8 of Super Mario-Kun (an adaption of Super Mario Bros. 2), Mario briefly becomes a chef and throws Yoshi Cookies.

In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Mario and Yoshi are required to bring Yoshi Cookies to Boshi in exchange for a race. Yoshi Cookies can also be used in battle where they summon Yoshi to eat an enemy and defeat it completely. Sometimes it awards Mario an item as well. However, some enemies and bosses can not be eaten by Yoshi; if so, Yoshi gives Mario a Yoshi Candy or returns another Yoshi Cookie back.

There is a pink Yoshi near the goal letters that can store Cookies for Mario, up to a limit of 200. If the amount of cookies goes over the 200 maximum, the Yoshi will eat the rest and if asked to store more cookies it will say it can't store any more.
