January Contest – A Logic Puzzle

Everyone is loving the small logic puzzle I posted for my 50th Birthday. So I decided to have some more fun.

First person to solve this puzzle will receive a care package full of honey, chocolate, and spicy honey. Each additional person who gets it right will receive a $10 coupon.

My contest, my rules, so if there is a false positive answer, only the answer I am looking for counts.

Good Luck!
