    I don’t like those grody little crackers and, at least since I’ve been an adult, they’ve never made an appearance on the table. (Neither has TNC).

    Nevertheless, like them or not, everyone knows what they are, so I’m going with 3/3 too.

    Calling Rhonda on this CotD. Does your Latin background suggest what my Latin background suggest? I know biscuit suggests twice baked. The cracker that I think the clue is referring to I’m allergic to because it contains wheat.

    My prediction is 2 correct although it should be a triple solve. Someone may get stuck in thinking too long. Speaking of 2 correct congratulations on your spot on prediction yesterday Jlane. Good call again buddy.

      @ Jacob – Well hot-diggity-dog! Back to back correct predictions. Who woulda thunk it?! Today I go for the “Three-peat” or maybe “Tri-peat” would be more appropriate?! ;-)
      I don’t know Latin but I do know a few prefixes that mean “3”, thus I was able to figure out the answer in a jiffy. (I’m wondering if this is even the FJ Clue – it seems too easy!) I’m going for an across the board sweep… 3 for 3!

      Yes, I came up with this one immediately, it should be a triple solve. I think that the 2 baked one has been used in a clue before, do you recall, Jacob?

      • Jacob Ska says:

        @Rhonda, I can’t recall. I remember the horse Seabiscuit popping up though.

        @VJ, I hate those crackers too. They bother my allergy.

        Do people eat snack foods like they used to in days gone by? I read a couple of days ago that Nestle is selling its candy division because it’s losing money in the USA due to changes in people’s eating habits. They claim people are eating healthier or could it be competition from Mars & Hershey?

        • rhonda says:

          That’s funny you mentioned Nestle. I just read an article about it this morning, that their candy will be sold under another name here in this US beginning next year.
          I must have my chocolate fix every day! And it has to be milk chocolate, no so-called healthier dark chocolate for me!

        • Jacob Ska says:

          @Rhonda, I think I read they sold to Ferraro candies of Italy which is fine with me. lol. I love Ferraro candy brands…talk about chocolate! :) :)

        • VJ says:

          I’m not a big cracker person to begin with. The only ones I ever really liked were those oysterettes you put in tomato soup.

          As for chocolate, we get those 6-packs of plain Hershey’s, Musketeers too, and keep them handy for sudden chocolate cravings. I don’t buy any Nestle candy, but I always have Nescafe Classico instant coffee on hand, in case I need a cup of java and don’t feel like making a pot of it. It’s better than the rest, imo.

    • rhonda says:

      Ferraro, that’s it, thanks, Jacob. This might end up being a Jeopardy clue one of these days!
