"Feed me, or I'll reap your soul!"
And with those ridiculous words, my whole life was turned upside down.

Sakuraba Rie, aged nine, is a cynical and grumpy girl who doesn't get along with her classmates. Rie is so haughty, she doesn't have a single friend. This all changes, however, when a self-proclaimed demon from the deepest, darkest pits of Hell suddenly appears in her kitchen to steal a tray of cookies.

What will happen between Rie and her demonic companion? Will Rie be able to forge a friendship with Licia, the cookie-stealing demon, or perhaps something more?

That's up for the reader to decide!

Is this just about friendship, or does it also include yuri? Or, would that be spoiling?

Most of the story takes place when the two main characters are children, so there isn't much in the way of romance there. Based on your choices, however, the two main characters can end up being girlfriends (or just friends) during a timeskip epilogue when they're both older.

This is a story of an adorable friendship between two girls - a demon and a human. This is also a story about cooking a lot of delicious food. There are some funny moments, as well as heart warming ones. The artwork is done by the legendary SillySelly, so expect beautiful character design and fancy outfits for the characters (my favourite ones are Rie and Licia's festival yukata and Yukine's yellow dress).

Kazuki-san deserves a special mention. He is such an adorkable moe dad! All the scenes featuring him are priceless, especially the ones with a cat ^^

Looks like a nice game! wish i could pay for it rn but I dont have much money, will pay for it when I can 

Thank you very much!
I have released a few free VNs (you can find them on my itchio page), so I suppose you could check those out, if you're not in a position to spend money at the moment!

hello Ebi-Hime :)

great visual novel  i love it , everything is so cute ,so much details about bakery and other foods it's like watching a food anime , the food itself is also beautiful , i love strawberries too !

i liked to see  a Sadako character in the story too

Licia appearance makes me think a little about Claudia from Interview with a vampire 

i also liked all the extras art and explanations of the background of the visual novel

i got the ending "strawberry kisses" and the "sherbet nightmare"

i don't understand why so less people leaves comments on games and visual novels on itchio ,like it's too much efforts to do so?

i don't want to believe i am the only one that played this visual novel

thank you so much for this great visual novel too ,i really enjoyed it :)


Hi Anwynn,

Thank you so much ;a; It's always a pleasure to read your comments, especially since you put so much thought into them!
I'm glad you enjoyed Strawberry Vinegar! I had a lot of fun writing it myself! I agree, all the food looks really good; the artist did a great job! >w<

I presume most people buy my VNs on Steam, so will leave their reviews there. Itch isn't as widely used, which would explain why there are fewer comments!

hi Ebi-hime

i try my best to put my thoughts into words it's not always easy but it seems successful enough if you notice it :)

it shows you had fun writing it :) ,  i have to play again to find other endings, thought i guess "Strawberry kisses" ending is the best 

i didn't think about Steam at all ,i have an account on Steam but i can't buy anything there so i'm not looking that website.

 if they leave comments there then it's fine :)

i'm fine with just itchio  ,there is so much great visual novels and games :) too much temptation too 

i'm glad that black friday sales made me discover your visual novels ,  the mermaid of zennor has a special place in my heart 

 my dear prince & strawberry vinegar are great i enjoy them a lot
