Garlic is a food item added in the Sun and Moon update. When eaten, garlic will restore 14% of the food bar, however it was updated to remove its healing effect. Eating garlic will stop the cold bar from decreasing for a few seconds. Garlic cannot be crafted into better food.

Garlic is deadly against vampires in Vampire Mode. Vampires take damage over time if standing next to a garlic bulb, or holding garlic in their inventory. They will instantly die if they try to eat garlic.
