The 1.11 update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons introduced new limited-time food items. It’s always good to see Nintendo introducing more food items, as there are already very few in the game. Moreover, you can even hold these items in your hand, just like your villagers in the game.

These new items will motivate veterans to log in back to New Horizons and take part in the fireworks festival. However, you can’t buy these items from Nook’s Cranny and can only get them from Redd for a limited time. Here’s how to get your hands on upcoming new food items in ACNH.

Fireworks festival is the best event to enjoy pretty colors in the sky during the nighttime. The Fireworks Shows are held every Sunday at 7 pm during the entire month of August at the same time for both the hemispheres.

This year players can also get their hands on some brand new food items including Cotton Candy, a Popsicle, and Bubble Tea. Furthermore, Nintendo has also added a minor detail with these items. After taking three sips or bites of these items, the item in your hand will disappear, indicating that you fully consumed it.

How to get upcoming food items?

In order to collect these items, you first have to purchase a ticket from Redd’s pop-up booth required to partake in the raffle. You can earn random rewards with these tickets and each ticket costs up to 500 bells.

Interestingly, you’re guaranteed to get one of each item before Redd makes his raffle completely random. There are 12 items in total with 5 flavors of Bubble Tea, four flavors of Cotton Candy, and three of Popsicles. Therefore, it will cost you a total of 6000 Bells to obtain everything from the initial 12, and all it takes is one visit.

Although these are limited-time items, it could be possible that it becomes available with the arrival of Brewster. Several data miners have discovered Brewster and the Roost in the game’s files. Moreover, it’s said that the Roost will be a part of the museum in New Horizons, just like in many previous Animal Crossing titles.

This could also be a splendid strategy to advertise the Roost on your island and attract fellow villagers with these items. However, it’s only just a rumor, so take it with a pinch of salt and try to get these items in Fireworks festival only.
