    You know, this is a good question.

    Of course, the real answer is "to rail-road the game, forcing the player to visit Goron City". I guess the possible answer in-game is... Ganondorf is a jerk. He knew that it was pointless but he did it anyway because it was a bother (and a possible deterrent to anyone that tried to exterminate the dodongos infesting the cave).

    Or maybe he knew that the Gorons were not particularly bright. Remember that after blowing the rock up they just realized they could have done so at any time.

    Geez, way to be racist, everybody. Gorons don't just "eat rocks", regular rocks taste kind of terrible. Gorons know how to tell the delicious ones from the plain old rocks. It's like the difference between giving someone a hamburger or a handful of bread crusts. I'm just going to forget I ever even read any of this and roll back to my home in the mountains.

    Funny as usual! Ganandorf really didn't think this one through, did he?
    Nothing to see here.

    There actually is an explanation in-game, and cheez pretty much hit it: they don't eat ALL rocks. One Goron remarks that the race has become one of rock gourmets, they just can't stomach ordinary stones. It's not made clear what's the difference, but apparently the best nutrition comes from the ones in the mine. (Given how one Goron remarks that the Spiritual Stone of Fire looks tasty, maybe they have a preference for gemstones, though they have been seen eating rocks of non-shiny variety.)

    I noticed the trouble posed by this strip; even if the Gorons dislike rock's outside of that cavern, they probably would eat them if they were starving.

    I believe the original justification was that the rocks in the mine tasted better.

    And didn't Ganondorf put the monsters in the mine and the gorons did the rock to keep them in?

    I'm sad by the lack of a stone soup pun.

    I love the Goron gnawing on the right side of the boulder.

    It's widely considered to be the greatest video game ever made. So get it on 3DS or Virtual Console.

    Haha, y'know what with their culture of eating rocks and all I suppose the meaning of "Between a rock and a hard place" would be totally different to a Goron! It kinda sounds delicious!

    Fun comic!

    The true reason that they're eating the rock is because the huge boulder that we see in game is Ganondorf's second attempt at blocking the entrance.

    On a different note, why do I get the feeling that the Goron with the silverware in his hands took a dive from the bomb plant ledge sitting near that spot?
