"You know I love to eat" Said Grandpa.

" I ate a lot yesterday" He continued.

" I started with a nice French Toast

For my second course I had a Hot Dog!

For my third course I had some Pho.

Next I had tasty Tandoori Chicken

For the next course I had Sushi.

To end it all I had some dessert!"

" What did you have?" I asked

" Guess! It was either Ice Cream or Apple Pie"

What did Grandpa have for dessert? Why?

I'm going to say

Ice Cream

If you take the appropriate letter from each of the courses, you get
French Toast
Hot Dog
Tandoori Chicken

So to complete the word FOODIE (which he clearly is), you'd want an 'E' in the sixth position:
Ice Cream

I vote for

Apple Pie


For each row (sentence), the result of (does it have punctuation in the end) is No-Yes-Yes-No-Yes-Yes, a "mild" pattern Thus, it is Apple pie because it has " after it.


Even if this is not the answer, punctuation definitely has to do something with it. IMO, there's no way OP "accidentally" included a needless period in the title.

I cannot for the love of all create spoiler quote newlines!

  • $\begingroup$ For newlines after a spoiler quote, put two spaces at the end of the spoiler line: ">!Spoilertext " (OK...**I** can't put double-spaces in a comment, so pretend there are 2 there) $\endgroup$

My Guess:

Ice Cream


Each food comes from a different part of the world, while both Apple pie and Hot dogs are commonly associeted with the USA. Since Gramps has already had an American course i think he will go with Ice Cream!

    $\begingroup$ This wouldn't be nice if it was the answer... I mean as an European I do not associate apple pie with USA. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Nank We have access to at least one Apple Pie receipe from 1381 - not just before the USA, but before Columbus was even born, let alone crossed the Atlantic... $\endgroup$ Jun 29, 2018 at 6:37
