Three. Days. Off.
Another bank holiday weekend is upon us. That's a whole extra day of weekend. A third more weekend, in fact. So much time. So many opportunities. But we find that it's best to stay realistic:

new blood orange
 
dangerous oranges
Would we do anything for fruit? Yes. We would do anything to get the finest quality fruit, and the perfect blend of that fruit, into our drinks. And that even extends to approaching an active volcano because the blood oranges in our new recipe are grown in the foothills of Mount Etna, an active volcano in Sicily. You can give our extra special volcanically grown blood oranges a try by picking one of these up at Waitrose. From the first sip, you'll be instantly transported to the foothills of Etna. Not mid eruption, mind. That wouldn't be any good.
Phase Worldwide
 
news from Nepal
A year ago, the innocent foundation donated £50,000 to Oxfam to help people affected by the devastating earthquake in Nepal. The donation meant that thousands of households could buy seeds and tools to help them restart the kitchen gardens and farms that had been destroyed in the disaster, and helped local traders and store owners get back on their feet. While this was our first project in Nepal, it won't be our last. The foundation has just begun a longer term project in a remote Himalayan village to help the people who live there grow more food. We'll be sure to keep you posted on its progress.
Henry
 
drinker of the week
We know that most babies aren't geniuses. If you ask them to explain the scientific principles behind the formation of neutron stars or the complex factors that led to the breakdown of the Russian Empire, they will often give you a blank stare whilst drooling a bit. But when we saw this photo of little Henry trying to drink his smoothie upside-down, we felt he still had a lot to learn about the 3 basic principles of smoothie drinking: 1. Hold it the right way up 2. Hold it the right way round and 3. Drink from it instead of chewing on it. You'll get there one day, Henry.
IT huddle
 
inside fruit towers
Every morning at 9:30am, the guys in the IT team stand in a circle and chat about IT. We don't know what they're talking about. That's not to say that we haven't heard them talking, it's just that we don't understand the words they're saying. When you walk past, they're always saying things like, "I'm going to update the SSIS package with a SQL task to working over TCP on the DB", or "I'm getting the client application ready for user acceptance testing", or "I'm going to try turning it off and on again." Nonsensical, the lot of it.
