The labels on these boxes of candy got so mixed up that none of the boxes is labeled correctly.

`3 chocolates`
`3 cremes`
`2 chocolates 1 creme`

What is the least number of candies you must taste test, and from which box(es), to determine which box has what?

I don't see a stipulation that each box truly corresponds to one of the labels. (A box could contain 2 creams and 1 chocolate, or nuts and bolts.)

With that stipulation, the problem would be exactly as http://brainden.com/...ruth +packaging as well several other similar topics.

Here Paralogic has given the answer.
