hrm... Nectar.

Libby's brand Kern's All Nectar, by Nestle, made from water, corn syrup, and juices.
Fault 1: Three different owner/brand names.
Fault 2: "All Nectar" to me does not mean high-fructose corn syrup, plus water, plus juices. It means 100% juice.

1. A sweet liquid secreted by flowers of various plants, consumed by pollinators, such as hummingbirds and insects, and gathered by bees for making honey.
2. Greek & Roman Mythology. The drink of the gods.
3. A delicious or invigorating drink.

[Latin, from Greek nektar, drink of the gods. See nek-1 in Indo-European Roots.]

\Nec"tar\, n. [L., fr. gr. ?.] 1. (Myth. & Poetic) The drink of the gods (as ambrosia was their food); hence, any delicious or inspiring beverage.

2. (Bot.) A sweetish secretion of blossoms from which bees make honey.

n 1: a sweet liquid secretion that is attractive to pollinators 2: fruit juice especially when undiluted 3: (classical mythology) the food and drink of the gods; mortals who ate it became immortal [syn: ambrosia]

So basically, Nectar means "Ambrosia" which means immortalizing drink of the gods; however, modern day it means any refreshing drink.


Those bastards.
