Hello,

I would like to present my funny puzzles - Apple and Potato 1x2x2 Puzzles.
The idea was inspired by Apple Cube.
When you solve a puzzle, you can eat it ;) Enjoy!

Best regards,
Vladimir Yaroslavskiy

If so or not, tutorial please! :D

Did you know that an apple and a potato (and an onion for that matter) all taste exactly the same? It's just the smell that changes how you perceive them.

Back on topic, this is a neat idea. So original and so unique. This is one of those times where you just stop and wonder how no one ever did this before. However, I believe these are just cut and not attached, making their construction trivial and based entirely on cohesion. Still, I don't think there are any puzzles that rely on cohesion, which makes it more unique.

I have to fully disagree. The variations in composition between a potato, onion and apple are so wide, I'm not sure how you can say they taste anything alike. From carb/fat/protein ratios, to vitamin and mineral contents, to flavonoid and polyphenol contents, to rankings on the glycemic index.


As to the puzzles: Why? :lol:

What you can do to make them taste the same is plug your nose. Basically that's what he means. :mrgreen:

An olive more likely. I don't think a grape can hold together once you break the membrane.

Slight bump. Should these go on the list of customs? I mean... they're just cut up produce. Unique and everything, but I don't know if they should be considered actual custom puzzles.

Work went into them and you can't buy them mass produced in a store so I would lean towards yes.
