I got the answer, but have no idea how it follows from the puzzle. The clue that really did it for me was
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Salt and butter are both needed

or something like that.

MAJOR SALT

The word everyone's coming up with isn't the answer. It's the clue. Use it at the end of the sentence and ignore the spelling.

BTW: You'll smack your head (or the puzzle maker's) when you get it.

The picture is supposed to lead us to a word that is supposed to lead us to the answer. Apparently the puzzle designer didn't know how to correctly spell the 1st word, which might have made the puzzle quicker. So, here goes.

a little salt:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
The 1st word is found by taking the symbol on the cans and combining it with the material the cans are made of


more salt:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Once you have that 1st word (it's misspelled), find it's homonym.


still more salt:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
What is made from the homonym of the 1st word?


If those hints don't give you food for thought, let me know and I will get saltier, which is oddly appropriate in this case.

Doh! That was some crazy leaps of logic.

Step #1

Get the key word: punctuation mark + (the leftovers clue).


Step #2
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Get the sound-alike clue.


Step #3

Try as many words related to the sound-alike clue as you can.

Oh wow! I was trying different items that you put salt and butter on until I hit the correct one. I didn't even notice the 'sound-alike' part of the clue until it was pointed out here.

Does Tanga admin solve these before posting them?

I get the whole homonym thing, but everything I try related to it, just doesn't seem to fit. Any other salt?

My wife got it after seeing a 'salt AND butter' comment in the Tanga thread; we backsolved it afterwards.

Leadfoot: Shouldn't that say March 1st?

Anyway, if anyone needs help identifying names in the 3/1 puzzle, just ask here (since the names are not the final solve)
