A potion of fruit juice is simply that: fruit juice. It adds 10 nutrition if cursed, 20 if uncursed, and 30 if blessed. The amount of nutrition is halved if the potion is diluted.

The potion of see invisible will have the same messages. These potions are therefore difficult to tell apart by random quaffing. Some ways to identify it as a potion of fruit juice include:

  • Fruit juice is sold in a delicatessen; see invisible is not. If you see one of the two in a deli, it's fruit juice. Likewise, if a deli buys the potion, it's fruit juice.
  • Dipping a unicorn horn into a potion of sickness turns it into fruit juice.
  • Dipping an amethyst into a potion of booze turns it into fruit juice.
  • Fruit juice is unaffected by cancellation.
  • If you have become Hungry within the last few turns and that status disappears upon quaffing, it was fruit juice.
  • Fruit juice can be generated by a horn of plenty; see invisible cannot.
