Foodimals, short for Food Animals, are living food-based creatures with the characteristics of animals that were created by Flint Lockwood's FLDSMDFR. They make their first appearance in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 where they play a major role.
After the FLDSMDFR survived its destruction and landed on the abandoned Swallow Falls, it continued to create more mutated food, turning the island into a food paradise. In addition to the distinct biomes it created, the FLDSMDFR produced living mutated food with the characteristics of animals.
Every species of foodimal behaves differently. Some are carnivorous and will chase down prey, while others are more docile and content to eat the local plant life. One thing all the foodimals have in common is respect and reverence for their creator, who they call "N-woo."
List of Foodimals
All Foodimals are animal-like in behavior and physical traits, however some are simply animalistic in behavior while physically resembling ordinary food with eyes and mouths.
Note: Foodimals are assumed to be herbivores unless shown otherwise (or their animal base commonly has a different dietary type).

Other Food-based Lifeforms
In the first film, mutated sentient "super food" were shown to reside within the FLDSMDFR's domain and protect its "Meat-a-roid". This concept of vicious sentient food was expanded on in the video game. Food creatures from the movie such as Roast Chicken, Gummy Bears, and Spaghetti Twisters return to wreak havoc on the town, and the game introduces other new enemies such as Ice Cream Snowmen, Onions, and Pomegranates.
- The ecosystem of the Foodimals was originally based on "healthy food" vs. "junk food" for which foods would be vicious vs. docile, but that qualification was too subjective so humor was prioritized.
- Fast food would originally attack its condiments - in an early version of the script, Tim Lockwood saved a Pickle from a Cheespider by stabbing it with a toothpick.
- Character Designer Craig Kellman came up with around 200 food puns, like "turtleoni," "corn dogs (huskies, of course)," "gingeraffes," and "porkupines."
- In an early version of the script, Earl smashed a Tacodile to pieces.
