ORLANDO—"Meeple Chow," Meeple Source's newest line of game components have already taken the title of "Most Popular" on their website after only one week on the market.
Consumers can choose from a wide variety of flavors and edible materials, such as Sourdough Pretzel, Superman Jawbreaker, Lemon Shockers and Dark Chocolate Truffle. They can then choose a design to apply to a foil wrapper or to the piece directly via edible confectionery ink.
"The Beef Bits Underdog piece I ordered was absolutely gorgeous"
Customer feedback averages 4.5 out of 5 stars on the Meeple Source Website, but complaints have begun to crop up. "The Beef Bits Underdog piece I ordered was absolutely gorgeous," says PuppyMuffin42 in a product review. "But don't leave your Pomeranian alone with your game. No replacements—no exceptions, they said! Won't buy again."
Another player reported attracting the ire of his little brother after foiling his plan in games of Carcassonne. "He literally bit my head off," says Jonathan Dough. "My custom figure is ruined!"
Meeple Source declined to comment about the negative feedback, but a package of Muddy Buddy Meeple Chow pieces arrived at our office this morning. We'll let you know how they hold up.
