In case you hadn't noticed, the innocent blog is quiet at the moment. That's because we're on our Christmas holidays. But never fear, we'll be back in 2007. In the mean time, shut down your computer and go finish off the brandy butter/Yule log/big fat crossword.
Here's Ynzo. He's just about to be interviewed for Dutch TV by a famous Dutch lady called Myrna Goossen. Also pictured is one of the grannies who has been supporting SuperOma (the Dutch version of Supergran). The interview will be on TV in January, so we'll post a link to it then.
This is Alex and Eleanor. Alex (on the left) is 9, and is here at Fruit Towers today to help us with some product development. Her favourite smoothie is our kids' apple and blackcurrant, but she also likes the strawberry ones. And if any of our North Pole drinkers are reading this, Alex would like a big pen set for Christmas, please.
Superberries is a website that we quite like. Partly because they share our love of all things berry, and partly because they interviewed our very own Lucy E. Lucy E is innocent's Cherry Picker, which means that she makes up all the recipes for new smoothies. Pretty exciting stuff.
Here's a new book that has been written about us. It's in a series called Great Brand Stories and tells the story of innocent. Written by a nice chap called John Simmons, it's a rollicking good read, full of mystery, intrigue, cops, robbers and a saucy incident involving a vicar and some smoked haddock.
Actually, that's not strictly true. It's about fruit, some drinks and some people. Our story. Quite interesting if you're into smoothies, entrepreneurial stuff and more smoothies. You can buy it here.
Celebrating your Birthday at innocent involves a Circle of Death. This is when everyone at Fruit Towers crowds round you to sing Happy Birthday, and then you make a speech. But by far the best bit is the home-made cake. Normally we're used to a bit of Victoria Sponge, maybe a lemon drizzle if we're lucky. Today, however, was different. Simon (who buys all our fruit) made these two beauties for Ailana and Claire. Lucky girls.
