A company located in Sweet Home, Oregon, has begun making candies. The outfit, known as Huey's Gooey Chewies, makes six types of chocolate-covered nuts (peanut, pecan, cashew, hazelnut, walnut, and almond), six types of chocolate-covered creams (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, mocha, marshmallow, and maple), and six types of chocolate-covered jellies (strawberry, lemon, orange, mint, apple, and raspberry). An advertising poster has been made, showing one of each type of Huey's Gooey Chewies in a circular arragement of six sections. Within each section is a group comprising one nut, one cream, and one jelly.
From the clues below, can you locate all 18 candies, group by group, going around the circle?
The almond's group comes directly between that of the orange jelly and that of the hazelnut.
- The marshmallow cream is two groups clockwise from the mint jelly and opposite the pecan.
- The apple jelly is two groups clockwise from the cashew, and two groups counterclockwise from the strawberry cream.
- The peanut is one group clockwise from the mocha cream, and two groups counterclockwise from the raspberry jelly.
- The vanilla cream is opposite the strawberry jelly.
- The lemon jelly is two groups clockwise from the maple cream, and two groups counterclockwise from the hazelnut.
- The two strawberry candies are in different groups.
