MIXED UP CEREAL MYSTERY
The Mixed Up Cereal Mystery
Last week I bought two boxes of cereal -- a box of Crunchy Crisps and a box of Frosty Crisps. The next morning both boxes were missing, but I did find this note.
Hints for the Mixed Up Cereal Mystery
Are the Crunchy Crisps hidden?
If the Crunchy Crisps are hidden, are the Frosty Crisps in the basement?
If the Frosty Crisps are not in the basement, what is in the basement?
Here's how we solved the mystery.
The Crunchy Crisps are hidden because both boxes of cereal are hidden.
The clue says that if the Crunchy Crisps are hidden, the Frosty Crisps are not in the basement. So the Frosty Crisps are not in the basement.
The note says that one box is in the basement so it must be the Crunchy Crisps.
We figured out which box of cereal is in the basement so whoever wrote the note needs to tell where the other box is hidden.
That night I found a note saying that the other box with the Frosty Crisps was in the attic.
