if music be the food of lunch, play on

Fancy having a Daal curry this lunch? There's a musical treat if you do.

On the inside of the new Daal veg pots there's a record player with a list of songs, all of which are related to food. So tune in, pop your veg pot in the microwave and have a sing-a-long whilst you eat.

Here is the link as well for those not having a Daal curry but who still want the tunes: www.innocentdrinks.co.uk/lunchmusic

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.

dropping science (and fruit)

We're making a new TV advert. The clever ones among you will be able to tell that it features fruit. Using the latest "dropping fruit from a rickety bit of scaffolding" technique, we are hoping to make something beautiful, entertaining and innocent in its nature.

Pete ("the best in the business") is looking after the fruit. He picks it, preens it and sometimes talks to it.

Helen is the director. She's firm but fair, and is guiding us towards sunlit uplands.

And the fruit just keeps rolling. Down chutes, from wires and pretty much every other way you can imagine that fruit could be propelled. We will stop at nothing until we have made fruit do every trick in the book.

a proper feastival

Feastival

The excellent Anna Jones (who created the recipes for our new family recipe book, Hungry?) came along with me to Jamie Oliver’s Feastival on Clapham Common last weekend to talk about the book, make some recipes with kids and dust off the old Blendavenda smoothie bike.

Jamie

Here we are before the carnage ensued

Hungry

Fruit prepped, ingredients laid out and head mikes donned, we got kids making the old bread and squashed tomato salad and fruit mess recipes from the book and then followed it with a bun fight to see who got to pedal the smoothie bike first

Kids

Though the fighting was mainly amongst all the mums and dads trying to have a go.

Thanks to everyone who came along, squashed, pedalled and ate the results.

Hopefully we'll be going along to more things like this over the summer and we'll be sure to give you plenty of warning the next time we do
