Koopa Koot, Paper Mario

A Tasty Tonic is an item in Paper Mario. The item is sold all over the world but is least expensive at Yoshi's Cabana for the price of two coins each; this is likely due to the large amount of poisonous enemies on Lavalava Island. A lot of Tasty Tonics are available throughout the game, in most item stores. A Tasty Tonic cures any Poison and/or shrinking done to Mario. They can be used outside of battle, but does not have any effect because all status ailments go away at the end of a battle.

A Tasty Tonic can be found left of the oasis in Dry Dry Desert.

The Tasty Tonic reappears in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and serves the same purpose. It is sold in the item shop in Rogueport for three coins; it is also sold on the Excess Express for three coins.

Tasty Tonics were taken out of Super Paper Mario, likely because there is no 'Shrinking' in this game and a normal HP recovery item will cure poisoning.
