It's been a while! Hangman game backward #11 - guess what the question was:

fill in "c" - Some said I'm black, others said I'm white. Either way you'll find it hard to lose me.
fill in "j" - You sometimes start with knocking, even though you're not in front of my house.
fill in "p" - I can be delicious, and annoying
fill in "w" - You do this before you head out for work in the morning.

Again, your answer can be in the form of:

The question was: _ p p l e

First answer that fully explained each line will be accepted, enjoy!


I think the question was:

_ o k e

Because ...

COKE can be black (Coca-Cola) or white (cocaine), but either can be a hard habit to break.
JOKE often begins "knock-knock".
POKE someone to annoy them; a poke is also a kind of berry.
WOKE you did, before getting ready for work.

    $\begingroup$ @Phil Those are spoiler blocks. Use ">!" before text to put it in a spoiler. At Puzzling we generally put Spoiler tags around answers to avoid revealing them to someone who wants to try to solve the puzzle on their own. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Jun 1 '17 at 16:10
