The Three Juices



Yes, this grapefruit juice is marvelous. It's also economical, "table-ready," and "refreshing any time o' day."

But Mommie has a secret! What is she keeping from us? Reader, are you ready to meet the challenge of The Three Juices?

Here are two hints:

1. Each juice's name begins with a letter found in the name Plato.

2. Orange juice is not one of the three.

Leave a comment with your best guesses. You can guess again and again, and I'll give more hints (in the comments) as needed. You're on the honor system here: no looking online for the rest of this ad. (I don't think it's out there anyway.) The prize: undying fame in the form of a follow-up blog post. I'll also post the rest of the ad when (if?) there's a winner.

Update: We have a winner.

Pomegranate, Apple, Tomato?

Michael Leddy said...

Stephen, you have one right.

JuliaR said...

Pineapple, apple and tangerine?

Michael Leddy said...

Julia, you too have one right, and not the same one as Stephen.

JuliaR said...

Pineapple, apricot, tomato? Do I get a second guess? Doesn't matter, I'm just glad it wasn't lime juice.

Michael Leddy said...

Yes, you can guess again (and again!). Your second guess has two right.

Ben said...

Pineapple, tomato, avacado?
-Ben

Michael Leddy said...

Ben, you also have two right. Here's another hint: the name of the third mystery juice does not begin with a. (And now, I fear, this challenge gets really difficult.)

JuliaR said...

Okay, pineapple. tomato and loganberry? They used to make wine out of loganberries so I suppose it had to be juice first.

Michael Leddy said...

That's it! Three cheers for Julia!

I'd never even heard of loganberry juice (or wine) — I could never have guessed it.
