There’s a New Wordle Game Just for Food Words and Yes, Please

Read next


If you love the online quiz game Wordle and fancy yourself a home chef (or you just plain love food), there’s a new game in town that’s a must-add to your daily routine. “Phoodle,” a word game with the same rules as the OG but using only food-related words, just launched, and it already has a fan in Martha Stewart.

Stewart posted an Instagram (breaking the cardinal rule of sharing the actual answer, but we forgive her), showing fans the new game and asking them to give it try themselves. “If you want a new word game to play, and who does not!, try,” she wrote. “Live today. lots of fun especially if you love food!!!!!!”

Cookbook author and art dealer Julie Loria came up with the latest Wordle spin-off, which launched this week, and offers daily games with six guesses each. It seems like a fairly easy guessing game narrowed down by a specific category, but after trying it, let’s just say it’s more challenging than you’d think.

“I am delighted to launch PHOODLE, a new online daily word game for food lovers,” Loria said on Instagram. “Test your culinary expertise by guessing a food-related term, from ingredients to appliances to famous chefs and more!”

There have been other successful Wordle-inspired games that have popped up since Josh Wardle’s Wordle made its debut last October, including Quordle, Lewdle, Dordle, Worldle, Heardle, and Moviedle. It seems like overkill, but when you think about how insanely popular the original became in such a short period of time, it makes sense. Having a game that everyone plays “together” with the same new word every day unites us in a fun, light-hearted way (that not much else has in recent memory).

In February, The New York Times bought the original, free game, which left fans worried it would soon be, well, not so free anymore. So far, they’ve kept it that way, and we’re all better for it.

As for Phoodle, those users who happen to guess the correct five-letter word related to food, cooking, or chefs will also walk away with a fun fact or recipe. Sounds like a good time to us. Check it out at
