Today's Wordle answer: what is the Wordle word for 18 Jun?

Alright, enough teasing. If you're just here to learn about the solution word itself, check it out below.

Today's Wordle answer is: CACAO.

Those who guessed "COCOA", my condolences. Cacao is today's Wordle word, and it's the name of the seed from which the altogether lovelier compounds of cocoa and chocolate are made. So it's very similar both in spelling and in meaning to cocoa - but not quite in taste, as cacao nibs themselves are likely far more bitter than the chocolate you're used to scarfing down.
