Easter eggs are hidden things in the game, other than the main quest.

Status Bar

If you click the corners of the status bar, you can change the characters that make up the corners. In order, the corners change to '+', '*', '#', '-', ABCD, 0123 and @. For example

Candy Count

When candy count reaches 42, The Player appears beside the number for a brief period of time. This is a reference to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, where 42 is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything. When you get 1337 candies, the counter says "You have leet candies" in place of the count of candies. When you have 314159 candies, candies has an exclamation mark at the end. This is because 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, and 9 are the first six digits of pi. Also, due to how Javascript works, if you cheat in or manage to get an incomprehensible amount of candies, the game will say "You have Infinity candies."

Throwing Candies

In your candy box, if you keep throwing candies, a character will animate a story (a new frame every time you click "throw candies", complete with dialogue), he will

  • Try to escape
  • Dig a hole
  • Find a chocolate bar

This takes a total of 1630 candies , or 163 clicks.

Going beyond 1630 candies, he continues to dig a hole and find a bunch of candies and continues to eat them. This is the end of the animation.

World

If you click on the space below one of the trees, you can dig and find 3 chocolates.
