Orange (juice)?

My reasoning is as follows: there's a lot of water in there, and a lot of sugar. There is a bit of fibre, so it must be plant based, and there is colouration, which might be natural. Hence I am going for an orange, or possible the juice in the orange...

Any good?

I did wonder about a fruit juice because of the fructose. Can't see any citric for orange juice.
Did wonder about Apple due to maltose and the ethylene Hexanoate but I don't see any salicylic.
Ethylene Butanoate smells of pineapples.
Fruit juice mix?

Edit? Artificial banana milk shake??

Given the mix of esters, I'm going with banana.

I got banana!  Bananas do smell like rubber...
