Stop 6: Snack Break (Answer)

All of the ingredients can be combined to form Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavours. If you identify the ingredients and alphabetize them, you will get the appropriate numbering. The ingredients are:

  1. Almonds
  2. Banana
  3. Butter
  4. Caramel
  5. Cherry
  6. Chocolate (or Chocolate Chips)
  7. Coffee
  8. Heath Bar
  9. Graham Crackers
  10. Marshmallow
  11. Mint
  12. Oreo
  13. Pecans
  14. Potato Chips
  15. Turtle
  16. Vanilla
  17. Walnuts
  18. White Chocolate

Which makes the flavours as follows:

CHERRY GARCIA
LATE NIGHT SNACK
NEW YORK SUPER FUDGE CHUNK
COFFEE HEATH BAR CRUNCH
VANILLA HEATH BAR CRUNCH
SMORES
PHISH FOOD
MINT CHOCOLATE COOKIE
TURTLE SOUP
CHUNKY MONKEY
BUTTER PECAN
MINT CHOCOLATE CHUNK

The circled letters, in bold above, spell the answer: RAINFOREST CRUNCH, a beloved retired Ben and Jerry’s flavour.

The puzzle owes a debt of influence to the lovely puzzle Incredible Edibles by Emily Morgan et al.! Although when I ran this hunt, players received the physical ingredients instead of images, which was much tastier.
