THEME:   states with foods for which they are known
don't think GEORGIA PEANUTS are especially well-known --- looks like PEACHES, for which Georgia is famous, was too tough   
Degree recipient   ALUM [I guess, but a degree recipient seems more a graduate than an alumnus]   
Would-be social worker's maj.   PSY [nope, it's PSYCH, and social workers would likely major in sociology or Soc]   
Throb   PULSE [possible, but PULSE is usually a noun; pulsate the verb]   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

CALIFORNIARAISINS was too lengthy to fit in Krauss's puzzle...and that's fine with me. The California Raisins were an anthropomorphic r&b group who appeared in commercials for the California Raisin Advisory Board in the latter half of the 1980s. The fictitious group even released four albums! Some people liked the Raisins. I did not. Krauss's puzzle included ADE, MEMO, PYRE and STAY. Read on.

I seldom work the NEA crosswords which appears in the Daily News because they are only 13x13 and are far too easy to solve. Seldom are there any words of more than eight letters. Today I was bored so I did the NEA puzzle. There were 36 black squares, an awfully high number for such a small puzzle. "Lion sound" was ROAR. "Jai ___" was ALAI. "Uncommon" was RARE. I told you these puzzles are far too easy to solve! And guess what? Today's also included ADE, MEMO, PYRE and STY.
