Thoughts from category: things we make

rate and review the stuff we make...


We've always loved to know what you think of the things we make. And whenever we ask you, you always give us great feedback that makes us think. So instead of just asking you what you think of our stuff every now and again, we thought we'd make it a permanent thing.

Please say hello to our brand spanking new 'your reviews' bit, featured on every single one of our smoothies, thickies , smoothies for kids, superfood smoothies, orange juice and veg pots recipe pages.

Now go and find your favourite recipe in the things we make bit of this site and let us know why you like it. There's even a special innocent shaped prize every month for our favourite comment if it helps you to feel a little less shy.

We've chosen our winner for October and it was Daisy from Cirencester who reviewed our autumn smoothie of the month as..

"It's Autumn in a bottle! It's the essence of Scrumping Apples in the Vicars garden and picking blackberries down the lane and going to Auntie Annettes house and making Damson Jam."

Well done Daisy. We'll be in contact about getting some innocent shaped stuff to you very shortly. Any comments left between Nov 1-30 will be entered into November's rate and review prize. So get reviewing.

what did you think?


Have you had a chance to try our new veg pots yet?

It’s the first time we’ve made things with veg so we’d love to know what you think of them. Any feedback you have on the specific recipes would be welcomed with open arms so that we can make them the best little veg pots they can be.

- Do you like our veg pots? Are they useful? Is there anything we could do to make them better?

- When do you eat them? Home or office? On their own or with something?

- What did you think of the specific recipe you tried? 10 out of 10 brilliant, or 0 out of 10 disastrous? How could it be better?

Just in case...we want as many people as possible to enjoy our veg pots. So we're now working on some vegan options as well after taking on your feedback from when we first introduced our veg pots to you.

vegetable vision




What with our first venture outside the world of fruit into vegetables, with our brand new tasty veg pots, we've been getting into all things veg-like at the minute. As such, we've started up our own veg art gallery.

You can see a few examples of our own handiwork above and here but we'd love it if you could join in too. Along with getting involved with the best gallery type affair since Tony Hart and Morph graced our screens (the good old days eh Row) you'll get a special prize that might well be vegetable related. Plus the fame of having your picture printed big and in colour on the inside of millions of our veg pots packaging if we choose your shot, just like this...

Your photo could appear on the inside bit here, where the cherry tomato Pac Man is.

Have a look for some inspiration, read the simple guidelines and get uploading at our veg art flickr group here.

please say hello to our new veg pots


We are more excited than Fatima Whitbread back in '86 to introduce our brand new innocent veg pots. Veg pots are quick and healthy meals made from great tasting vegetables and pulses. Our smoothies have always made it nice and easy for people to get a bit more fruit into their diets, so we're now doing the same for veg.

Each veg pot provides three portions of veg, is a great source of fibre, are low fat and low in salt. They come in four filling recipes, moroccan squash tagine, tuscan bean stew, pea & broccoli rice, and thai coconut curry. All of which are available in Waitrose up and down the land (in the chilled bit, near the fresh soup). They'll then be on sale in other retailers from early October if you haven't got a Waitrose near you.

And, combining one with an innocent smoothie can make up your magical 5-a-day that Dr Shilpee will tell you all about. Pretty nifty, eh.

We'd love to know what you think of our new veg pots once you've had a chance to try one, please leave your thoughts as a comment to this blog post or email us at
