Who’s one step closer to the Winner’s Circle? Who’s going home? Actually, everyone still gets to play, and you’ve likely been playing from home all along, but you know what I mean.

Here are your winners! Top four advance into the winner’s division.

22 Beau/Heather

19 nettiebaron/sunshine
18 uberminz/Peggy

      How many did you get that you were prohibited from guessing?

    My apologies to uberminz! You gave great clues, I just blank when I’m working under a time restraint. Plus I don’t eat Mexican so my clues (or lack of) sucked in that category!!

      It’s okay Peggy, your clues for the yellow things were super great! And if Mexican food were easier to differentiate, we couldn’t have the endless combinations of Taco Bell. So that’s an overall win for humanity if you ask me.
