Blueberry, blackcurrant and cranberry juice
 
berry’ed treasure
Lots of nice things come in tiny packages. Diamond rings. Pygmy hedgehogs. And the wild blueberries pressed into our new blueberry, blackcurrant & cranberry juice. As berries are small, they can be tricky to find. And we’re very picky about the berries we use in our blend, so we foraged high and low to uncover only the finest fruit that nature had to offer. But we got them all in the end. All 132. That’s right, 132 handpicked blueberries in every bottle. A berry good squeeze, indeed.
the Big Knit
 
a woolly good time
The Big Knit is back, and you lot have already sent in box-loads of tiny hats to pop atop our smoothies next winter. To help put an extra spring in your needles, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Etsy to give away everything you need to throw your very own knitting party. Etsy will provide the wool and needles (courtesy of Wool & The Gang ) and we’ll send you loads of tasty drinks to sip while you knit. All you need to do is post a photo of a little hat you’ve made and tweet it to @innocent and @EtsyUK with the hashtag #BigKnit. The winner be chosen on February 12th, so keep your eyes peeled.
carrot key
 
drinker of the week
Some of the cupboards in Fruit Towers are full of really important stuff. So important that you need a special key to open them. The most secure cupboard of all is the one with the smoothies in it (obviously) which is why we accessorised the key with an eye-catching knitted carrot. We posted a picture of our carrot key on Facebook a couple of weeks back, and it was only then that we realised how old and grubby it looked. Suzy noticed too, and sent us a brand new one to replace it. We’ll guard it with our lives, Suzy. We promise.
Day Old
 
inside Fruit Towers
We knew it was going to be a great week when we walked into the kitchen on Monday to find a lot of bread. It had been delivered by Day Old, a social enterprise which collects surplus bread and pastries from bakeries, sells them on the following day to offices like ours, and then gives the profits to charities tackling child hunger in the UK. They’re reducing food waste, they’re making money for good causes, and they provided us with as many delicious complex carbohydrates as we could get our hands on. Weeks don’t start much better than that.
