Poutine is one of the three basic Player Needs that you need to look after to survive. It can be thought of as the game's hunger meter. Snack Delivery will make four bowls of it per day, and they can be purchased for $5.00 each. The player can also make their own Homemade Poutine by using their Deep Fryer, after they've acquired its fry basket.
An in-depth explanation for making your own poutine can be found on the Deep Fryer page.
