Yoshi Cookies are the favorite snack of the Yoshis. They are featured as a special item in various Super Mario titles and also come in a variety of shapes, including flowers, hearts, squares, circles, and even Yoshi's face. Some cookies are chocolate, vanilla, or sugar cookies with icing or jam in their centers, while others carry a checkerboard design.


Yoshi franchise[edit]

Yoshi's Cookie[edit]

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 is 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 World 2: Yoshi's Island[edit]

During development of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yoshi Cookies were considered to make an appearance, but no graphics remain in the final game.[1]

Yoshi's Woolly World[edit]

In Yoshi's Woolly World, Yoshi Cookies appear in the level Yoshi and Cookies. There are two types: a type that expands when Yoshi stands on one based on cookie sandwiches, and a grouped, checkered type that appears in the background but collapses when Yoshi goes near them.

Yoshi's Crafted World[edit]

A Yoshi Cookie craft can be found on the flip side of the course Poochy's Sweet Run in Yoshi's Crafted World.

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.

During the Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins arc, which happens after the Super Mario World arc, Yoshi sends Mario some of his island food as thanks for helping him free Dinosaur Land from Bowser. One of the presents is a living Yoshi's head-shaped Yoshi Cookie named Yokkī, who helps him by biting and eating everything it faces.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars[edit]

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 to summon Yoshi, where he will attempt to eat an enemy. If successful, the enemy is transformed into an item (a specific item for each type of enemy) that is given to the player. If unsuccessful, Yoshi gives the player a Yoshi Candy. Bosses and some enemies can never be eaten by Yoshi.

There is a magenta Yoshi near the GOAL letters that can store Cookies for Mario, up to a limit of 200. If the number of cookies goes over the 200 maximum, the Yoshi will eat the rest.

Game & Watch Gallery series[edit]

Game & Watch Gallery 3[edit]

In Game & Watch Gallery 3, the Modern version of Egg replaces the titular eggs with Yoshi Cookies, which bake while rolling down slopes. The Light Blue Yoshi can grab them at a certain distance, but if he waits too long, they will fall to the ground and be burned.

Game & Watch Gallery 4[edit]

In Game & Watch Gallery 4, the Modern version of Mario's Cement Factory replaces cement-making with cookie-making. The cookies are from Yoshi's Cookie. If Yoshi gets the Yoshi Cookies from the top sent by Mario, he will instead eat the Yoshi Cookies instead of packaging them. If the Yoshi Cookies are sent to Toad at the right side, he will package them.

Paper Mario[edit]

In Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time in Yoshi's Island of the past, Kamek searches for cookies for Baby Bowser. When Kamek gives them to him, Baby Bowser eats too fast, chokes and drinks some milk. Baby Bowser gets enraged when he finds out that Baby Mario and Baby Luigi ate the cookies while he was talking to Mario and Luigi. Luigi takes four Yoshi Cookies that Kamek dropped and gives one to Baby Luigi immediately. Later, he gives two cookies to Baby Mario and Baby Luigi to calm them down after entering Yoob's Belly. Luigi gave Baby Luigi the last cookie at the very end of the game, in exchange for Baby Luigi's Hammer.
