    Re: Can you solve the Fruit Gums secret?

    I had these posters on my bedroom wall for 3 years, then pulled them down as none of my family ever figured out anything from them. Reading through this thread I’m amazed this quiz was aimed at kids!!
    sorry for bringing up old thread, but 35 years later these posters came into my head and the hours of frustration trying to figure out this darn address - a google brought up this thread!

      Re: Can you solve the Fruit Gums secret?

      I read this thread a few months ago, I was really hoping that the answer would be posted on here by the time I got to the end of it.

      And no, I don't know the answer either.
      I've everything I need to keep me satisfied
      There's nothing you can do to make me change my mind
      I'm having so much fun
      My lucky number's one
      Ah! Oh! Ah! Oh!

        This is insane. I can't see anything in these posters to suggest a name and address at all. I keep thinking it must be simpler than we all think!

            Well, it was a bit of a hail Mary. Still, nice try!
            Thing is, if anyone does get it right, we've no way of knowing. Unless someone did win, finds this thread and replies with the solution.

              I found a list of streets in Tring. There is no "avenue" there. There is, however a Grove Road, which I think is a plausible answer.

              There's also Elm Tree Walk, Sycamore Drive, The Beeches, The Orchards and Thorn Tree Drive, but they don't sound likely to me.

                The clock doesn't change time despite the rapid growth of the tree, the clock wouldn't be there if it wasn't relevant,

                    Anyone think there might be something to do with the directions of the character's eyes? Like, the way they're pointing could be something to do with the numbers on a clock. So the first pic shows 7, 0 (closed eyes), 12, 6. Second pic 7, 0, 11, 7.25 or 5.35 (cross eyed). Third pic 6.0, 12, 5.35 or 7.25 (not quite as cross eyed as the other one).
                    Also, in the third pic, there is a field with crops & a sheep in it behind her, could be linked to Springfield, as spring is the first panel of that picture.

                    Does anyone still have a copy of the reverses? I tried to view them at full screen, but i just got blank orange pages.

                      Me too.

                      First one: the sapling becomes a tree, and the person ages. In the top right, flight goes through improvements.
                      Third one: the four seasons of the year.

                          The imagebam links to the reverses still work, but for some reason, the DYR image viewer doesn't open them.

                            Thanks, that's a great help. Not much of a help in solving the puzzle designed for children, but a help none-the-less.

                              The badge she's wearing in the third poster says I LIKE THEM, which is an anagram of I LIKE METH.
                              Hope this helps.
