Ordinarily there wouldn’t be much to say about a can of mixed fruit juice drink. The mere fact that it’s an unfamiliar brand doesn’t necessarily make it worthy of being featured in its own article. But upon closer inspection, this can of Parrot Mixed Fruit Juice Drink turns out to be quite interesting indeed. The juice in this can is made from “tropical fruits grown under the bright tropical sun of Formosa.” Wait, Formosa? Clearly this is more than a refreshing beverage. They’ve invented a fruit punch time machine, and they would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for that meddling guy and his blog!
The possibilities are endless. We could go back and meet the King of Siam, or simply enjoy the natural beauty of Ceylon. Basutoland and Bechuanaland would again be more than just odd splotches on obsolete globes. Even Yugoslavia would make a triumphant return. Oh, to have Yugoslavia back! I’ve never really gotten over that breakup.
I’d love to spend hours contemplating all of these amazing adventures, but I haven’t got the time now. My can of Parrot Mixed Fruit Juice Drink and I are late for our flight to Rhodesia.
