Thoughts from category: veg pots

Roll up, roll up - get your veg pots while they're hot.

Recently, we’ve been channelling our inner Gok Wan to give our veg pot range a bit of a makeover. We hate to use the phrase ‘tastier than ever’ but, well, if the shoe fits… (it does and it looks stunning). We’re really rather proud of them (if you couldn’t tell), and now we’d love to give you all the chance to sample one (on us, of course).

There are six to choose from: three completely new recipes and three improved classics, which you can have a closer look at here.

If you’d like to take us up on the offer simply click here and a veg pot coupon will be winging it's way to you very soon.

P.S – if you fancy letting us know what you think after you’ve sampled one either email us at or rate and review the recipe on our website.

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:

reusing our packaging


Tales of weird and wonderful ways to make use of our packaging once the contents have been enjoyed never fail to make us smile.

Apparently our veg pots make great homes for chilli plants and orchids

Our fruit tube packaging can be turned into a mirror discovery box for exploring in the garden


Juice carafes come in rather handy for impromptu games of skittles (add water to make things a bit trickier), and the caps are the perfect spot for growing just enough cress to spruce up an egg sarnie.


It also turns out that our kids' smoothie boxes are just the thing for carrying sick ducklings to the vets


And as if that wasn't enough, they make pretty nifty conveyor belts for transporting snacks from one end to the other too.

Thanks to Matt, Laura, Dominic, Emily, Ian, Mrs Barry, Minnie's mum and Craig for the photos and suggestions.

If anyone thinks they can top these, we'd love to hear from you.
