Messages from the participants

In this Flush game, we asked for request messages "We would like to hear your memories about sweets." Thank you for all the many messages.

1st place

fborlc

I had chocolate milk with dinner.

2nd place

Coalchaser

I didn't put it an answer, but I love cupcakes. :D

17th place

EM

Hello!

30th place

Bob

Still enjoy the puzzles, especially the larger ones.

35th place

JesterJ

My favorite sweet is a cake my mother makes that we call "Lemon Goo Cake", but cheese cake is also good;-)

38th place

Bosuonparedo

All of my answers start with C... If I win, can you please include some Black Thunder bars in the prize package? LOL! A Japanese friend sent me some, and I loved them, but I can't buy more here in the US. (I'm kidding, of course!)

47th place

JacquiO

This one was more difficult than I imagined. Did I think of "sweets" that you eat or "sweets" a term of endearment. In the end I googled it and took the most popular result(dessert).

49th place

sing+hunt

Grandmothers are good about having sweets for their grandchildren, and my grandmothers were no exception. They always had some kind of candy, cookies, chocolate, and gum whenever we visited, on holidays and regular days.

When I HEAR "sweets" I can also hear the word "suites"!

Rules for the word game "Flush".

Please answer the question with four phrases that popped into your head. The number of players who write us the same phrase becomes the points you get for a phrase. The sum of the points for your four phrases becomes your score. The player with the highest score becomes the winner.

We will consider capital and small letters the same, but singulars and plurals, spaces, or other little differences are judged as different. So "Blue bird" and "blue bird" are the same, but "Blue bird," "Blue birds," and "Bluebird" are all different.
