Jaar with Candy puzzle

+3 votes
187 views

You have three jars filled with candies. One jar is filled with banana candies, one jar is filled with lemon candies and one jar has a mix of both. All the jars are mislabelled (i.e. all the jars have wrong labels about what kind of candies they contain).

All the candies look very similar in shape, size and color and they even smell the same. The only way to distinguish them is by tasting.

You have to eat one and only one candy to determine the correct jar labels. You can eat that one candy from any jar you want as long as you eat only one in total.

1.Pick up a candy from the jar which is labelled as "Mix of bothe the candies".
2.Now if that candy is banana, then it is "banana only" jar, or if it is lemon candy it is "lemon only" jar.
3. Depending on step two exchange the labels of the other two jars, as all jars have the wrong label.
