Refilling the fridge is annoying when I can only hold 4 meals at a time. In real life, I’ll carry a dozen bags of groceries in one trip from the car to avoid a second trip, but in the game, if I want to grab a dozen meals, that’s 3 trips back and forth from store to vehicle, then 3 more trips from the vehicle to my fridge.
The 4-item limit makes more sense when hauling big boxes on the handtruck, but I feel it’s too limiting for grocery shopping.
My two suggested options would be 1) You can carry more than 4 food items. 2) A possibly simpler option would be that each “pack” of food contains 4 “portions” once you put them in the fridge.
Disclaimer: As far as I can tell, it’s not really essential to eat right now, so this is more about the future. I believe your energy just drains faster if you’re hungry, but if you’re just driving around and managing Employees, you can go without food.
