The great pineapple juice shortage of 2009?

PM 22 January 2009 42

Is there a pineapple juice shortage in Canberra?

Every time I go to the cafe, the only juice 99% guarranteed to not be there is pineapple juice.

When I go shopping, I see empty shelves reserved for pineapple juice (except for the stuff in tins).

Am I the only one seeing this?? What’s the deal?!

Well, last night I continued my sleuthing and unearthed a fridge full of pineapple juice in Subway Gungahlin! This is my new mission in life.

If Heinz bought out Golden Circle (there IS a personal juices/pineapple juice pun there) should not there be 47 varieties of pineapple juice available.?

Pineapple juice featured prominently at the Dickson Tradies tonight. It was also obtained later at the Phoenix - with ice!

They actually seem to have pineapple juice everywhere I go.

I should have offered some to the Palerang mayor (who I happened to see twice today) ....

That's where all the pineapple juice has gone... Braidwood's got the lot. Just like Qbn has got all the chicken schnitzels.

More pineapple juice purchased at the Royal in Braidwood this arvo!

Questacon do! I even took a photo of it ....

It's true that I pondered the apple and guava for a while, but I am ashamed to admit that in the end I followed my baser instincts.

*hangs head in shame*

No one has pineapple juice because it's nasty and no ones wants it!

Granny 10:45 pm 25 Jan 09

I had pineapple juice today at the Questacon cafeteria and it was yummy. But let me re-phrase that ....

Pineapple juice is available ... no ....

Um, I can never speak of pineapple juice again!

Are sardines good for getting rid of crabs?[/quote]

umm.... yes...yes they are....you should mix them with an equal quantity of horse manure and then rub vigorously into the affected area three to five times a day......[/quote]

If I can't find horse manure, are Stanhope's media releases an acceptable alternative?

Anyway, didn't bad weather in QLD affect pineapple production this season?[/quote]

mate....if you wanna rub stanhopes press releases into your crotch area.....well you go right ahead.....

They have a fantastic Moroccany sardiney pizza-y thing at Mecca Bah. Maybe they have stolen all the sardines.

All the small pineapple juice boxes in the hotter parts of summer tend to get used as frozen treats for children.

(Invert in freezer so the sediment makes a softer ice layer on the 'top', freeze for several hours, cut the top off, attack with spoon)

Where the bigger bottles and cartons go, I have no idea.

Compared to some threads, this IS innocuous.
