This egg is gooey to the touch and smells like strawberry taffy, which makes it easy to confuse it for a piece of candy. Around Halloween time Snop eggs are displayed in candy stores in hopes of attracting customers. When it is close to hatching, the egg starts to stretch and the sweet scent gets stronger.
Snops are very mischievous, hiding in the bottoms of Ark children's trick-or-treat bags and eating their candy. The more candy they eat, the bigger they grow, going from a creature the size of a Chocob to a full grown Arpeggiarp. This creature starts off stealing small pieces of candy to whole bags from the owner, and at its full size, it uses its long tongue to stretch into vending machines and take the sweets that are inside. Owners of these creatures have to keep bags of candy on hand to feed them at that point or else they'll go elsewhere in search of sweets or sweet creatures to eat such as Lotties, Candits, and Feeps.
