A short puzzle, as I take a break from Epigraph writing. To get each answer, remove a letter from the one before, then add a letter. Doing this to the last answer can also get you the first answer.

1. Soft drink brand
2. Metal cylinder
3. Hunger Games character
4. Brownish-grey color

Jack and Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill just laughed at Jack as he sat there unconscious.

Jack should've known that Jill was a baddie . . .

Hint: You don't have to anagram. You only add a letter to the beginning or end and remove a letter from the beginning or end.

Hint two: you are all going to hate me so much. I blame a bit of sleep deprivation on my part. I do not know if this is a fair puzzle but I expect that someone will figure it out eventually.

I don't know any Hunger Game characters.

I also feel as though your soft drink brand will be obscure.

It is not an obscure soft drink brand at all. It is about as major as they get. Not Coke, though.

None of those three.

Hint: Seeing as 3 relies on unfair pop culture stuff, I'll say that it's either PEETA or GALE. The first two are totally common knowledge; the fourth is a somewhat obscure, but not really totally obscure, color.

Just to clarify if i get it right:

Since 3 is either PEETA or GALE, 4 would have to be xEETx or xALx, where x is either a letter or an empty space ? (we only remove one letter and add one?)

edit: yea i googled taupe aswell, but you need to anagram to get to it
