Too Many Cooks (#9) + BONUS


Welcome to Week 9!

This puzzle was inspired after watching quite possibly the most absurd thing ever put on TV. I like to think that this puzzle makes more sense than that video ever will.

Week 10 is the meta, and it should be straight-forward enough. That is unless you get the turkey coma.

So, while writing clues for this puzzle, the Internet led me to what is currently 10-Down.

“Cereal that in 1959 advertised in Life magazine with a crossword puzzle”

I think that clue is good enough. One could guess the cereal from context clues alone, but that’s not the fun part.

A little bit of researching has led to this discovery, a scan from Life magazine that features a full page ad that’s a crossword for the cereal.

As far as I know, this is one of the few cereal crosswords out there. And I know you love crosswords, so why not try to solve one of the finest (by default) cereal crosswords ever?


As you can imagine, the transfer from Life magazine ad to Across Lite was a little tricky. The numbering for the PUZ and PDF files are different than those used in the magazine, but that’s because my crossword software won’t let me clue 1-letter words, so you guys will just have to overlook that. Before solving the PUZ or PDF versions, be sure to look at the actual magazine clipping, just so you know what to look for.
