Want to get a taste of Paula Deen’s cooking without the diabetes? Hey, I love Wilford Brimley too, but I don’t need Liberty Medical knocking on my door. Paula Deen is going into the gaming app business.
Available on iOS, Paula Deen Recipe Quest follows the formula of Candy Crush Saga. It’s a simple puzzle-matching format with around 40 levels. The object of the game is just what you think. Gather the right ingredients to put together a real Paula Deen recipe. Without the excess calories.
Pro-tip for players. Butter. Lots of butter. Did I mention butter? Instead of scores on other games, winning Recipe Quest can net you real-world prizes. Low-tier prizes include subscriptions to Paula Deen’s digital network. The grand prize? A chance to cook up a meal with Deen herself.
Paula Deen released a statement along with a nutty video to promote the game.
“I am a gamer at heart and never leave my home without my iPad. Paula Deen’s Recipe Quest is an incredible and one-of-a-kind game that will allow y’all to cook up a storm with me while solving exciting puzzles. Plus, it’s free!” Deen stated in a press release.
Yes, no matter where you live, saying y’all brings out a country accent. Mine is just a bit more pronounced living in Alabama. And here’s the video. Slow motion? Check. Cooking ingredients? Check. Paula Deen looking insane? Priceless.
I will say, that’s a badass kitchen.
In the statement, Deen says the game is free, but reviewers on the App Store say that after level 14, unspecified fees come into play. So, it looks like a freemium game.
If you’re so inclined, you can download the game to your iPhone or iPad today. Android users? You have to wait until the butter softens. Patience Paula Deen fans.
