— A Tasty Tidbit, in Kirby's Dream Buffet

Copy Food are a series of food-based items that grant temporary use of Copy Food Abilities in Kirby's Dream Buffet. There are eight different varieties - one for each ability - which can be found in stages or granted by other means, including the following methods:

When Kirby picks up a Copy Food, he can hold onto it, even between game modes in the Gourmet Grand Prix, until it is used (by pressing R). Kirby can hold multiples of the same food item (up to three), but if he picks up a different Copy Food, it will override anything he previously held.
