Good afternoon! Thanks for tuning in for the Afternoon Drive!
Today was Mystery Monday, and we saw the return of the Mystery Box! Joe hid, and I had to guess what was in there. Joe was pretty stumped the last time we did the Mystery Box, but Joe did eventually guess what it was. (It was a guitar capo by the way 🙂

Also, this is an item we could do the taste test on, and I was very excited about that!

When we did the hearing test, I learned it wasn’t a very heavy object, and it slid pretty easily, From the questions I asked, I learned that it’s something you’d normally find in a kitchen, and it is not a breakfast item. From the smell test, I learned that my brain is stupid and it won’t identify a smell that I know I know. It’s an item that has chocolate in it, and we learned that it is a standalone item. Normally you’d eat this item on its’ own.
We then found out it was a candy bar, and I think that sealed it for me.
HA! No I didn’t. I thought it was a Crunch Bar, but no! Alas, it was not.
Thanks to Mike of Fredericktown who helped me out!
