When I’m around, I make you smile

My powers reach a few good miles

It’s weird enough, you mentioned food

But more bizarre, just here you stood

Joy or dismay, I’m on my way

The truth always, I will convey

Who Am I?

edit:

Hint 1:

I am an object. A specific profession cannot work without me.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks Phylyp! I see a lot of creative answers and I think this is the magic of riddles! If in case my riddle is not clear enough for guessing, do I need to provide the answer at some point? $\endgroup$ – Rock Cheung May 17 '18 at 16:42
  • $\begingroup$ After a day or more, you can provide a hint, to help steer people towards the answer.You'd want to provide the answer only after several days have gone by, and various hints haven't helped. $\endgroup$ – Phylyp May 17 '18 at 16:54

EDITED with new answer for part 3

I'd say it's

a camera

When I’m around, I make you smile

we smile when our photos are taken

My powers reach a few good miles

we can take photos of things that are far away

It’s weird enough, you mentioned food

"Cheese" we all know someone who posts photos of his lunch

But more bizarre, just here you stood

we stand still to take a photo

Joy or dismay, I’m on my way

photos are always taken during important events even if they are tragic

The truth always, I will convey

a photo is just a representation of reality (unless photoshop was used)

hint 1 :

I am an object. A specific profession cannot work without me. Being a photographer without camera would be quite hard

Is it a

Rainbow !?

  • It definitely brings a smile,
  • It reaches a few good miles,
  • Weird, but rainbow lolly
  • Bizarre, it stands there
  • Joy or dismay, it will come and make you smile anyway
  • truth of light it conveys

Is it

Endorphins?

It is present during a smile. The total length of nerves is a lot of miles. It is also present in foods, joy or dismay.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ This is a nice answer! But it is not the one I have in mind $\endgroup$ – Rock Cheung May 16 '18 at 19:13
  • $\begingroup$ I see. Think I must. $\endgroup$ – looneysnoop May 17 '18 at 4:00

Could the answer be:

Santa Claus?

When I’m around, I make you smile

Santa claus makes everyone smile when hes in the neighbourhood

My powers reach a few good miles

Santa can travel all over the world

It’s weird enough, you mentioned food

Santa is associated with food i.e. Milk, cookies, carrots for his reindeer etc

But more bizarre, just here you stood

Its a lot more bizarre that someone believed not to be real is actually stood in your general location

Joy or dismay, I’m on my way

Regardless of whether or not you are happy or sad at christmas, santa will always arrive

The truth always, I will convey

Tricky one, but the truth (for a child especially) is that Santa is real.

I have two guess:

Ice cream Truck
Your Pet (Dog)

When I’m around, I make you smile

Well, you smile when you see the ice cream truck coming
You also smile when you are around your pet

My powers reach a few good miles

You can her the ice cream truck jingle from miles
Your pet can run and smell you for a few miles

It’s weird enough, you mentioned food

Ice cream
Dog food?

But more bizarre, just here you stood

Don't know this one

Joy or dismay, I’m on my way

The ice cream truck comes even if you are happy or sad
If you are happy or sad, your pet is there to comfort you

The truth always, I will convey

Don't know this one either
