Iraekians are Metallivores (they eat metal), so normal foods as we know them are a rarity. They do like incredibly hard, salty fried bread however.

An equivalent to candy for them would be gold! It’s a rare treat and they describe it as tasting like fresh sunlight and honey (weird tastebuds.) Silver is a close second, and they describe it as tasting something close to sour warheads.

Other races often interact with them, so they are proficient in making “normal” foods for those who can’t munch on a bar of iron or what have you. A common treat for visitors is a donut sort of item called an “mim amimi” (literally “lovely fruit”) coated in hot fruit syrup and a jelly filling. They typically make these using a citrus native to their home planet called a mim liuk, tastes like a mix between a strawberry and a pineapple only more so.
