The ID Quiz’ New Site


Due to popular demand of the Local Grinds and Local Celebrities ID quizzes (and perhaps a few others he’s got circulating out there), Tracy Nishibun recently announced the launch of his all-new ID Quiz website!

Quiz categories currently available include celebrities, places, history/education, food & beverage (yay!), news, kids, movies, TV, music, sports and general knowledge.

One neat service offered is the ‘CUSTOM QUIZ’ request, where you can submit your own pictures and answers, and their development team will create your very own customized ID Quiz for $50. You can personalize it as much as you want, right down to something like, say, “Name that Aunty & Uncle”, “Where Were We in Vegas?” or “Who Owns This Car?” (based on family & friend’s vehicles).

You can also join their mailing list to be notified whenever new quizzes are posted. Nice.

While the quizzes are currently available to download free of charge, all they ask is that if you’d like to share the quiz, insstead of forwarding your downloaded file via email to your peers (like how it got circulated with the popular local grinds quiz 1 & 2), that you kindly provide a link to the site instead. Hopefully visitors will click on a few sponsor ad links while there to help support the site. Speaking of which, I might be adding sponsor ads here soon to help support THIS site.

Under the ‘Food & Beverage’ category, there’s currently one available on CANDY. The Local Grinds 1 & 2 quizzes are located in the ‘Places Theme’ category.

The entry I posted here back in May titled “The ID Quiz – Local Grinds 2: Find Clues Here!” and the quiz files within that continues to rank in the top 5 most visited pages and downloads on this blog site according to visitor statistics, which shows just how popular these quizzes are.

In honor of Tracy’s very cool ‘The ID Quiz’ games, I’ve created one here called ‘The Tasty Island’s NAME THAT GRINDZ!’ quiz…

Of course, this is static (not like them cool Excel cats), so if you care to answer this quiz, you’ll have to play by leaving your answers within your comment(s) below this post. If you think someone that answered before you got any of them correct already, just omit that number(s). If you think they’re wrong, then take your own shot at it. If you all get stumped on any particular one(s), I’ll drop a few hint. The first big hint is that they were all featured right here at T.I..

Oh, be as specific as well. Like brand name or where it’s from (Hinode? Zippy’s? etc.).

This is just a one-time shot, and I don’t plan on making anymore. Gotta’ admit though, it was kinda’ fun to create. Also gotta’ say, over the course of the more than two years in food-bloggerville, there sure is plenty of content here to create an entire volume of food-based ID quizzes!

I suppose if I tinkered around a bit with Excel, I could figure out how to create them myself, but nah, we’ll leave that to Tracy and his group of experts.

So if you like photo hunting games, be sure to check out the ID Quiz’ new site!

    Nate, you indeed got ’em all! I actually only went back through several month’s worth of stuff to find those photos, yet how you were able to go through just that is very impressive!

    Dina, that’s an interesting guess on #1 that you thought was Tupig. I actually had to ask Diner C (she’s Pinay) what exactly that is. Now I know! As you see, it’s Suman from Alicia’s, which is absolutely masarap. You gotta’ try it!

    Robyn, you did pretty good, too.

    Kat, Bunmeido calls it Mikasayama, but I see it actually is called Dorayaki!…

    Dana, the three you answered were right on the money!

    Hey, that was fun and quickly answered! For more photo hunt quizzes, be sure to check out:

    Eh Pomai,

    I’m a rabid fan of your blog ;-)

    Plus, it helps to know what the general names for the items were. The hardest ones were the mango bruschetta and the lard. Oh, and the salmon musubi which you rotated 90 degrees – sneaky!

    BTW, where was the sushi roll from?

    Thanks for the quiz – that was fun. I’m going to steal your idea and do one for my bloggerversary!
