    Nice!
    • Philip Chow 🤓4:32 · 8 months ago
      never noticed how many banana-flavored candy is out there... very cool indeed

        Zach you an Oculus Rift user? I’m a Quest fanatic.

          I've actually never messed around with any kind of VR; OCULUS
          21D OCULUS___ Rift, VR brand
          was a word that fit and that I recognized (via Rift even). One day I'll check it out and I'm sure I'll get lost in it. :)

            ? 😀

                just might be my favourite food.

                  Fun! In a larger puzzle you could have thrown in Circus Peanuts.

                    was too funny! My only gripe is that most of these are not "makers" of the candy, but brands of candy made by companies like Wonka, Ferrara, etc. Great finds though, and a fun angle on the theme!

                      That was a hurdle I decided to jump in the interest of keeping the same clue for all theme entries. NECCO
                      11A NECCOMaker of a banana-flavored candy
                      isn't a candy in and of itself, so I couldn't clue it simply as [Banana-flavored candy]; but a weak argument could be made that RUNTS
                      33A RUNTSMaker of a banana-flavored candy
                      and LAFFY
                      13A LAFFYWith 29A, maker of a banana-flavored candy
                      TAFFY
                      29A TAFFYSee 13A
                      "make" banana-flavored candy since it's not their only flavor. It definitely wouldn't pass publication submission, but I thought it was OK enough for the contest.
