The Deceptive Snack (おやじの味?, lit.: "Oyaji's taste") is a treasure in Pikmin 4. It is a nori senbei, a Japanese rice cracker with dried seaweed layered on top. It is located in the Crackling Cauldron, a cave in the Sun-Speckled Terrace, and in the Frozen Inferno, a cave in the Hero's Hideaway. It can also be found in the Dandori Challenge stage, Hotshock Canyon, twice.

Collecting the treasure[edit]

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies shown are just suggestions.

Crackling Cauldron[edit]

The Deceptive Snack is inside of a sideways flower pot on sublevel 1 of the Crackling Cauldron. it is located in the southern section of the map. It is guarded by two Shearwigs, which should be defeated before attempting to collect this treasure, although it is not mandatory to do so. To collect this treasure, you must throw 5 Pikmin at it.

Frozen Inferno[edit]

It is lying on the ground at the north of sublevel 1 of the Frozen Inferno. To collect this treasure, you must throw a fire starter at the bundles of dried plants in front of it. Then, throw 5 Pikmin at it. The nearby Fiery Bulblax should be dealt with first.


Schnauz's notes[edit]

This treasure takes a sophisticated palate to appreciate. First, a salty- sweet sauce is put atop some kind of white foodstuff. It's then fried and topped with a thin black layer of... paper? It sounds awful, but it tastes wonderful. Surprising in the best way!

Olimar's notes[edit]

It's sweet...but not too sweet. Salty... but not overly so. It tastes like something a more refined palate would appreciate. Perhaps belonging to someone whose tastes were developed over the course of many years.

Louie's notes[edit]

A crunchy and uncomplicated treat.
