More Refreshing Choices

Seen on a delivery lorry: ‘More Refreshing Choices!’

Not an error, but it’s structually ambiguous in that it may be interpreted in two ways, depending on the scope of more:

(1) more choices that are refreshing (more modifies choices)
(2) choices that are more refreshing (more modifies refreshing)

Clearly, sense (1) was intended.
