an ode to our juice carafe

Our lovely juice carafe's first birthday is coming up, and to celebrate we'd like to dedicate a nice poem to it.

01 family
Not being great poets ourselves (see below if you need further proof), we'd love you to have a go at coming up with a fitting tribute. It needs to start with the line "It’s our juice carafe’s first birthday", and it should follow the rhyming pattern ABABCDCD, so you might want to avoid sticking an orange at the end of a line. A little bit like the one below, but much, much better:

It’s our juice carafe’s first birthday,
And we’re planning a bit of a do,
We’ll probably play some reggae,
And dance a little bit too.
Someone will bake a big cake,
Hopefully with jam and cream,
Then we’ll all be too stuffed to stay awake,
So we’ll fall asleep and dream.

Leave your poem as a comment to this post and the 3 we like most will each win a case of our finest juice. We'll be picking the winners on Thursday February 2nd so get your entries in by the end of the day on Wednesday.

This competition is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations to Lydia, Paulme and Becky. A case of our juice will be on its way to you shortly.

small apples, big news

STOP PRESS. STOP PRESS. STOP PRESSING.

Right this instant.

Put down the apples, step away from the juicer and remove yourself from the kitchen theatre immediately because our apple juice is now available in little 330ml bottles. 110316_AJ_Bottle

You can find them in NISA and McColls stores right now, Starbucks from next week and Sainsbury’s from the start of November.

We’re so giddy with excitement that we’ve got 10 cases to give away.

This competition is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. Big congratulations to Stephen P, Christine S, Andrena, Karen, Di, Clive, Rach, Jayne, Sara and Louise. Cases of apple juice winging their way to you very soon.

your words, our labels (part 2)

We ran a caption competition last month asking you to tell us what words should accompany our lemur on our next round of orange and apple juice labels. After a side-splitting session reading through all the suggestions we eventually selected Leyla's caption as our winner (you can see the rest of our favourites here).

We were so impressed with the quality of the captions first time round that we thought we'd run the competition again, and give you all another chance to try your hand at becoming a published innocent writer.

Sheep croppedd

So, you know the drill - what is this sheep thinking, saying, or playing at?

Just post your caption as a comment below, and we'll announce the winner in a few weeks' time. The top ten runners up will each get a load of innocent goodies, and the winning caption will be printed on our juice labels alongside the sheep this summer, and read by gazillions* of people. Fact.

**Competition now extended to Wednesday 11th May** Good luck.

*last time we checked, gazillion wasn't a real number, but who's counting?

lemur label winner

A few weeks ago we announced our competition to get your words on our juice labels. All you had to do was provide us with a caption to go under this little guy.
