ready, steady, grow

 

Free seeds with our smoothies for kids

From now until the end of April, every box of our kids smoothies and fruit tubes will come with its very own pack of easy to grow seeds. There are 6 different varieties to collect, including carrots, tomatoes, cress, basil, violets and sunflowers, and it doesn’t matter whether your garden’s big, small or non-existent, as they can be grown in anything from an empty smoothie carton to an old Wellington boot.

It’s time to get growing.

happy birthday to our juice carafe

Carafe 1st birthday cake

Today is our juice carafe's first birthday. To celebrate we sang happy birthday, we played pass the parcel and Dave F's wife made this rather lovely orange sponge cake. Being an inanimate object our carafe wasn't able to enjoy the cake, so we did the decent thing and helped it out. It was delicious.

You may also remember that last week we set you the challenge of writing an ode to our juice carafe. We had some cracking entries but there could only be 3 winners, so a big well done to Lydia, Paulme and Becky whose tales of hullabaloo, marching bands and vodka made us smile a lot.

Its our juice carafe's first birthday,
We are planning to have a great laugh,
All our staff will be singing hip hip hip hooray,
For the success of our posh jug, the carafe.
The apples and oranges, all of our fruits,
The staff, and Richard Reed too,
Are going to strip down to their birthday suits,
And cause quite a hullabaloo.

It's our juice carafe's first birthday
A Juice of high repute
Twelve months of loving labour
Devoted to the fruit
The finest natural product
From Innocent to you
Add a drop of Vodka
And make it naughty too

It's our juice carafe's first birthday,
Bring on the marching band,
Bursting with fruit and here to stay,
They're the zest-iest in the land.
So let's dance for joy and celebrate,
Gather round all your friends,
'Cos they're never made from concentrate,
And there's even some exciting new blends.

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.

win a valentine's breakfast in bed

Breakfast in bed hamper[2]

At a loss as to what to get your beloved this Valentine's Day? Need to atone for last year's diamond ring keyring stunt? Maybe we can help, as we've got 3 luxury Valentine's Day breakfast in bed hampers from Forman & Field to give away. Stuffed full of bubbles (of the drinking variety not the blowing kind), smoked salmon, coffee, jam, crispbreads and lots of innocent smoothies, we'll even arrange the hamper to be delivered straight to whoever it is you want to spoil.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is tell us about the worst romantic gift/gesture you've ever been on the receiving end of below by 9am on Monday February 13th. The 3 that we feel most sorry for will be rewarded with a delicious hamper and our deepest sympathies.

This competition is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered, and well done to Linda Guest, Stana Magnusova and Alison Blencowe who won the hampers.

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.

blends ahoy

STOP PRESS STOP PRESS STOP PRESS

Or should we say start, as for our first official bit of news for 2012, we are thrilled to announce that our new juice blends are now in the shops.

You can choose from our delicious apple and raspberry recipe or totally tasty tropical (sorry), depending on whether you need to be transported to a dappled orchard or a desert island.

Bottles
You can find them in ASDA right now and in other shops very soon (we'll keep you posted as to where and when).

Given that at least one person you know will be on some sort of miserable cabbage maple syrup nothing beginning with C diet right now, why not cheer them up with a bit of sunshine in a carafe?

Or better still, give their eyes and ears a treat courtesy of a shady orange grove and the dulcet tones of Captain Jean Luc Picard.

Or even better still, if you fancy winning yourself a case of our new blends, just tell us your top 3 most ridiculous New Year's resolutions below and the 10 that make us laugh the most will each win a case of our new juice.

We'll pick the winners on Friday 20th January, so get your entries in.

Meantime, to find for your nearest ASDA stockist, just email hello@innocentdrinks.co.uk

This competition is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. Congratulations to Katie B, Kieran W, Karen G, Thom B, Yasna, Andi G, Bex, Kerri W, Samantha S and Steven Y. A box 'o' blends winging their way to you very soon.
