I didn't bail just because I wanted the 1000 or so points I had left when I finished. Not one of my favorites.

are any of these products sold in this solar system? I've never heard of any of them, I must have led a very sheltered life

I guess I must have got lucky with my words; a few odd ones but nothing extreme.

Interesting puzzle, but also pretty obscure--I only knew one of the products I got (though I did know one of the others in a different form, so to speak). I'd be interested to find out what the other puzzles were, just out of curiosity. Anyway, I very clever idea for a WP.

Using the basic letters helped me quite a bit. Don't ask me what they are, I get scolded enough.

I don't see Donna's post. Does that mean "If you can''t say anything nice..."

Donna said "Weird but fun. "

Me, I bailed about 18 letters and 24 moves into my first, the Japanese snack. The rest of it might've been brilliant but life's too short.

Haven't heard of these products but fun puzzle

Very odd product names indeed. Now I'll be paying more attention next time I go to the grocery store! I have heard of the dishwashing liquid but use a different brand. Anyway, thanks for a fun and interesting puzzle, Sploofishy! And if anyone is interested, here were my five clues/phrases:

Gear for slightly dark journeys - pathfinder avenger lite luggage
Makes you happy but not totally - non ultra joy dishwashing liquid
Condiment found in The Exorcist? - famous daves spit bbq sauce
Big sky brew - yikes! - moose drool brown ale
Aussie sweet and sour? - skipping girl vinegar

My favorite one is the "moose drool brown ale." Yuck, but LOL!

The Japanese snack was pucca (NOT yucca, NOT succa) chocolate.

Slight correction on one of your list of the phrases, Geri. You have "famous daves spit bbq sauce" which should be "famous daves devils spit bbq sauce". Without the devil, it sounds like it's Dave's spit... Eeeeeeeeeeeew!

This puzzle was inspired by my purchase of Non Ultra Joy the other night which just struck me as kind of funny. We were low on puzzles, so I just wrote it up fairly quickly. I have had the Pucca Chocolate though. They taste pretty good - they are just stuck with a terrible name.

The other products & clues were -

tombstone oven rising pizza ("Zombie food?")
arm and hammer baking soda ("Symbol overly macho for product?")
lustrous henna all natural hair dye ("Oxymoronic product?")
jig a loo spray lubricant ("Why things don't stick in Canada")

The Tombstone Pizza one would be funnier if the product name were "self rising" like the Schwann's version of that pizza is called, but had to go with the actual product name. Glad that those of you who enjoyed it liked it. My apologies to everyone else. But you know what they say, "Word Puzzles are like twice daily flights out of Yakima. There's always another 12 hours later. But until then, you're stuck in Yakima."

Oops, sorry about that! Thanks for catching the goof, Sploofishy!

Yakima's not so bad, Fishy. Unless you're already having a yucca-succa-pucca sorta day.

I have some Best Western discount coupons for Yakima, if anyone is interested. When the Best Western reps gave them to me, I thought "Who the hell would want to go to Yakima?"

I've eaten at Famous Dave's, so that didn't shock me. Out of deference toward the Mysterious East, I also attempted "fucca" along with all of Smoke's failures. Then to rub devil's spit in my wounds, I also got the Canadian one (pig? big? dig? fig?) Can't buy a break at this game.
