Answer:  CONCENTRATED

(By and large, I think most Americans have kind of gotten away from frozen concentrated OJ, because of all the pasteurized fresh squeezed options that are available these days.  As a kid, I remember buying the cans of the frozen concentrate, and keeping them in the freezer until you needed it.  Then you’d take it out of the freezer, maybe run the unopened can under some warm water for a bit, and plop the semi-frozen blob into a pitcher.  Then, you’d add three cans full of water, and stir and stir, until you had your OJ!  I guess they still sell it.  I see it in my mom’s freezer.  But, I haven’t bought it in years.  When’s the last time you bought frozen concentrate???

Hey!  Guess what?  We have a new clue word today, in “eureka”.  Our old buddy, ralis95, has a little updating to do on his world famous clue word database!  And, all the other jumbles came up as new as well.  The answer letter layout was good, but I think it would have been better if they had switched “cargo” for “ninth”.  No biggie though.  Great, silly cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
