Meat is a common food item found in many of the Kirby games. It has the appearance of a roasted chicken or turkey. Being the second best health power-up after Maxim Tomatoes; when obtained, it replenishes just over half of Kirby's Health. Maxim Tomatoes always restore Kirby to full health.
Meat can often be found lying on the ground. In Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, they are also found in treasure chests. In Kirby: Squeak Squad, they are also found in black treasure chests and in the bonus game. Snooters like eating them, if they can get to it before Kirby does. If Kirby mixes a Cherry bubble, a Pep Brew bubble, or another meat bubble with a meat bubble, the result will be a Maxim Tomato bubble.
