I don’t know why the theme today made me think of actors and sports stars that have only gotten better with age. After not finding anything of that sort on the grids, I realized that the Strands today was probably simpler. And, yes, finding YOGURT on the rightmost column confirmed that.

Right under it, there was MISO. Running like a Spangram at the very top was KOMBUCHA. Under it, there was KIFER and underneath it, KIMCHI. FERMENTED was the Spangram for the day. But, from the last couple of grids, I couldn’t make anything out.

After a lot of random trials, I decided to let Copilot have a go at it. Turns out, there’s something called a SAUERKRAUT that I was unaware of. And, well, that was the end of today’s Strands, and I had to take that help, so I’d count that as one hint for sure.
