Thread: 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!

    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 am a man (just in case anyone asks).

    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,
