>Your party comes across a merchant claiming to have been to the fae realms

Do you buy it?
Yeah, why not? Even if he's full of shit, it's still a cheap little indulgence and random encounter with an absurd character. It's the little events like that those give detail to your journey, not just the big moments of heroism and fighting.
Also i'm obviously going to analyze the fucking stuff to see if it's cursed or poisoned. If it is, depending on the extent of it you either got a cheap trap for some dumbass enemy with a sweet tooth or cheap LSD.
What is a "sprinkle"? Those mesmerising multi-colored confections upon that bread can surely fool someone else into paying a handsome sum for them. I'll take the full load, mister merchant!
