Considering Clementines

Clementines and mandarins. Both small, both orange, both delicious. Both excellent for pretending you’re a giant holding a regular sized orange. And now both blended together in our new clementine and mandarin juice. It just made sense.

Here at innocent, we have a dedicated team of people who travel around the world selecting the cream of the fruit crop for our drinks, whilst making sure it’s all sourced sustainably. A few months back, we asked the team to find us some clementines and mandarins to squeeze into our new recipe. Always up for a challenge, our George and Robin headed off to sunshiney Spain to find the very best clementines and mandarins the country had to offer.

 

While they were there, they discovered that Spanish farmers actually call clementines the ‘king of the mandarins’ because of its sweet taste and general deliciousness. We tasted them and had to agree, which is why we always make sure that our juice is 80% clementine.

George and Robin also went to look in on some research that is currently being conducted into how the clementine harvesting window could be extended. The picture below shows a farm at the research facility where they are attempting to cross pollinate different varieties in order to create a clementine that could be harvested in either October or March.

 

They haven’t quite cracked it yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know when they do.

In the meantime, we think it’s about clemen-time you gave our juice a go. Sorry. But not that sorry.

breakfast juice

Have you tried our new orange, pink grapefruit and blood orange juice yet? 

If not, we can highly recommend it. It packs a seriously citrussy punch that's best enjoyed at breakfast time (preferably on a tray, in bed, provided by a person you're quite fond of). 

We're pretty biased but it definitely beats a bit of Marmite* on toast.

*or your yeast-based brown stuff of choice.

Roll up, roll up - get your veg pots while they're hot.

Recently, we’ve been channelling our inner Gok Wan to give our veg pot range a bit of a makeover. We hate to use the phrase ‘tastier than ever’ but, well, if the shoe fits… (it does and it looks stunning). We’re really rather proud of them (if you couldn’t tell), and now we’d love to give you all the chance to sample one (on us, of course).

There are six to choose from: three completely new recipes and three improved classics, which you can have a closer look at here.

If you’d like to take us up on the offer simply click here and a veg pot coupon will be winging it's way to you very soon.

P.S – if you fancy letting us know what you think after you’ve sampled one either email us at hello@innocentdrinks.co.uk or rate and review the recipe on our website.
