NPR Sunday Puzzle (April 20, 2014): April Showers:
Q: Name certain trees. Also name something that trees have. Rearrange all the letters to get the brand name of a product one might buy at a grocery or drug store. What is it?
The puzzle went around and around in my head until I came up with an answer.

Edit: The hints were "around" and "came up" as in a drowning person "came up" for air and caught "a round" object.
