rejoice, the sheep has a voice

A while ago we asked you to think of a caption to accompany this picture of a sheep on our next round of orange and apple juice labels.

Sheep
We had more than 750 entries. Picking a top ten was tricky. It took us ages to whittle the list down to a top twenty, and we got our knickers in such a twist trying to cement a final ten that we gave up in the end, and settled on a top eleven.

Here are the ten runners up, each of whom will receive a bunch of innocent goodies:

That’s the last time I go there for a pedicure. They’ve taken two inches more off my right hooves (Rapsmith)

You return my coat THEN we talk about you getting back your wallet (Jo Weston)

It wasn’t until halfway up the mountain that Mary realised she’d left the iron on (Elise)

No way, did you seriously forget the picnic basket? (Judit)

Nope. The song lied. No one’s coming round the mountain (Katie M)

Could you break a fiver? (Jason Slater)

The counting people isn’t making me sleepy (Janice Stott)

If that woman starts singing ‘the hills are alive’ again, I’m off (Sue A)

Call yourself a photographer, you can’t even hold the camera straight (Kat)

Hey you. Don’t walk all over my lunch (Vera Douglas)

But our winner, who will see their words printed on thousands and thousands of our juice labels, and will soon receive a hefty delivery of innocent juice is... the lovely Mel with

Cheaper car insurance, you say?

Mighty big congratulations to Mel & our ten runners up, and a huge thank you to all who entered for making it such a hard decision to make. We've not had as much fun getting our knickers in a twist since we attempted the final move from the Zoolander 'walk off'.

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.

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.

First up, here's a selection of runners-up:

"First to blink loses." by Lilly Potter

"I am so excited right now. Just look at my face...so excited." by Tom

"When I get out of here I'm going to find a nice spot in the country, work the land, and grow old with my wife." by Tom Pryke

"That's it. Keep working that mysterious look. She'll notice yo- yep, she's spotted you, you handsome devil, you" by Hannah bates

"Paul couldn’t hide the fact he thought holding a giant cucumber for the photo shoot was absolutely ridiculous." Dudley.

"One final turn, now hold it, hold it and you've nailed the part, you rascal." by Adam Justice

"Quick, look busy, David Attenborough's coming." by Julie Ramsden

"And by the way, when I said your tail was the longest I've ever seen? I was lying." by Sarah

"Yeah, actually you did wake me up" by Rob Falconer

"You looking at me? YOU LOOKING AT ME?? Ah, wait, that's a mirror." by Amebeecomps

Now, drum-roll please. And the winner is Leyla, with the following:

"Between 10 and 5 they said. It is now 5.30."

Congratulations everyone, we'll be in touch with every runner-up and Leyla to send you each some innocent prizes. Watch this space for our next caption competition.

your words on our juice labels

Animals are good to look at. We put pictures of animals on our juice labels and write captions to go with them.

In the summer this photo of a lemur will appear on our next round of juice labels. We want you to write the caption that goes with it, with your words being seen on hundreds of thousands of juice labels.

 

Lemur to use cropped

What is this furry fellow thinking, saying, or looking at? Is he in fact a she? What you write is completely up to you.

We'll print the caption we like best on every single label with a lemur on it later this year. Your words will be read by shed loads of people (probably millions) and you’ll receive international fame, fortune and a hefty delivery of juice and smoothies.

Just post your caption as a comment below. The competition will close at 6pm Thursday 17th March, and we'll announce the winner the following week.

Good luck.

the grand squeeze 2011

To celebrate the launch of our new juice this week (yes, we launched a new juice this week), we had a big juicy breakfast inside Fruit Towers.

There were bagels, salmon, jam, and a fair bit of juice.

P1040013

To round up the morning and to keep the juices flowing, we had a squeeze-off. The aim of the game was to see who could squeeze enough oranges quickly enough into a carafe to fill it (set to the overture from Carmen). And who do you think won it? One of the big fruits himself.
