Earl and Joe are best friends, who secretly sent encrypted messages to each other ever since they were little. Now they're both in college, and Earl had aced his midterm on cryptology.

Joe congratulated Earl by buying him a Neapolitan ice cream sandwich (Joe couldn't afford much), hid the sandwich somewhere in Joe's house, and he later encrypted, on a piece of paper, where he hid the sandwich. Soon after Joe hid the sandwich, he realized he placed the sandwich near the sun, meaning that he'd better relocate it, otherwise the sandwich would melt.

Unfortunately, Joe, being extremely forgetful, had misplaced the sandwich and forgot where he put it. He still had the encryption note in his hand, and so he turned to his best friend Earl to solve it.

"I was gonna give you this later, but you gotta hurry now and find the ice cream I got you, otherwise it'll melt."

The note said this:

T embrace embrace pound embrace kiss

Where did he hide the ice cream sandwich?


"Pound" is not referring to the verb or money, but rather the measurement.

Also, pound is the only word not being encrypted for one letter.

Yay, first to comment!

That was a little hard, but very, very brilliant. I loved it and am looking forward to the next one! You're very creative!

This was very unique and fun! Loved it!

I had always thought the Xs were hugs and the Os the kisses. When I had TXXLBXO it was obvious it should be the other way around. Os are like puckered lips. Xs are like two lines hugging each other.

Fantabulous! This was my first time doing a logic teaser. Great one. I didn't look at the hint so I too had # for pound but after I was looking at T-O-O-# O-X it was pretty easy to figure out what was missing. So fun tho! Great job!

Was not able to get it because i did not know what to do. I thought the sentence meant something, instead of the words representing letters. I know better next tim ethough. Thanks!
