Challenge #139: Spooky API Connection

Love the challenge.

 

After reading the documentation and the fact that you could send in multiple candies in one request I started to go down that root. I then realised that meant the JSON parsing would be more involved, so switched to sending 5 requests and built quite a tidy solution (well at least I think so!)

 Let us all hope that they didn't really consume that many calories!!!!

 

 

Edit - I should add that I assumed it was a typo on the fireballs and just replace it in the text input rather than adding a formula

Double Edit - Also turns out you should read the text in workflow as well, as this tells you to do it in one call and not multiple, shame on me!

added a constraint to build this without using the Summarize or Join tools (i.e., Join or Join multiple)

My solution doesn't assume "Atmoic Fireball" was misspelled since we always have user input errors w/ data!!
