Puzzle #67, "Sub Standards", lists 5 condiments (bbq sauce, hot sauce, mayo, mustard, or relish) that must be used on the 6 sandwiches. However, your solution has 3 sandwiches with mayo, which mathematically eliminates one of the other condiments. Your solution has no sandwich with mustard on it.

This is certainly a tricky puzzle. Please note that while the introduction lists five possibilities for condiments, they are just that - possibilities. At no point does the puzzle indicate each condiment was chosen by at least one customer. (By contrast, clue 1 makes it clear that each drink was chosen by two people.) Thus, while five condiments are listed, it is not necessarily the case that all five were chosen.
