After the battle, you take some time to look for all the candy that went flying.
You found: X-1 of:
  - earthy candybars
  - gummy eyeballs
  - industrial jawbreakers
  - melting candy canes

Also, always:
You found 22-29 (?) of: (probably same distribution as megapinata?)

* If you use only melee or only fire techniques it seems to always give these two items, otherwise not? Spading needed - see discussion.

Encountered

Using a monstrous pinata while etheric.

Attacks

All Ranged, Etheric and Stealth are completely blocked with the following message appended:

<You attack>, but it doesn't seem to have much effect.

All melee attacks get following messages appended to it. Each attack after the first gives an extra candy drop (see above).

First time:
<You attack>. Blood and candy splash everywhere.

Further times:
<You attack>. Your attack sends another gout of blood and candy flying.

If you use fire attacks on it, it catches on fire, giving a different set of attacks and different Myers sampler drop, with the following messages:

First time:
<You attack>. The flames catch on the monstrosity's husk.

Further times:
<You attack>. The flames spread over the monstrosity's husk.

And at the end of each round:
The monstrosity continues burning, taking 5-43(?) damage.

Notes

Capturing this opponent with Mirror Gazing can give:

A few strange shapes bubble to the surface of the mirror. You flip it over to find they're candy corn. Weird.
