(Austin, TX) University of Texas senior Harry Wood came up with a beverage idea last year, and his new fruit drink just might make him a millionaire.
"We have decided on the name 'Dickens Cider,' and it is a wonderful experience," said Wood. "Our first marketing slogan is: 'You've Just Got To Get Your Dickens Cider.'"
Wood, who is majoring in psychology, said that the name seemed to be a natural.
"I was sitting with this chick in the student union when the thought came to me," he said. "The only thing in the world that mattered at that moment was my Dickens Cider."
Wood believes that the new beverage will be a hit.
"I imagine that every undergraduate on the Austin campus will be thinking about nothing but getting Dickens Cider by the weekend," he said. "We hope to be getting our Dickens Cider in the grocery stores real soon."
Wood's girlfriend, Sharon Peters, said that she is excited about the new opportunities for Wood.
"All Harry talks about is his Dickens Cider," she said. "Every boy I know is excited about getting his Dickens Cider."
