Connections Reply by December 9
Are you still stuck with the puzzle? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections are:
- ICE CREAM TREATS – Float, shake, split, sundae
- HARDWARE FASTENERS – Bolt, nail, rivet, screw
- TYPES OF COOKING OIL – Corn, Olive, Palm, Peanut

Whoever wrote today’s NYT Connections had, for some reason, a strange interest in cooking oil and home repair. In the same vein, I started the Blue category by listing all the cooking oils. It was actually quite easy since I love to cook.
I then switched to the yellow category for ice creams. I mean, do you even need help here? I had some trouble with the Green because I’m not much of a handyman, but I got it in the end.
With only four words left, I combined them all together and got the Purple and NYT Connections category for December 9th.
