We are delighted to present an exciting new range of on-the-go drinks, an addition to our CRAFTED® portfolio of naturally delicious fruit juice drinks.
This week we are launching our new smaller 330ml pack, perfect for on-the-go refreshment at lunch time or anytime of day. As with all CRAFTED® products, they are a blend of fruit with water. This means that each serving is at least 20% lower in both sugar and calories than the juice on its own whilst still providing 1 of your 5 a day.
The new range is made up of 3 delicious blends: Mango & Passion Fruit, Blueberry & Blackberry, and Still Cloudy Lemonade.
With this range we have not only looked at the blends and individual design of the packs but also environmental impact. This is why the range has been packed in a convenient 330ml with a screw-cap rather than a PET bottle.
With its bold and vibrant colours, this new offer is guaranteed to stand out as something fresh and authentic on the shelf, offering convenience, healthier drinks, with absolutely no compromise on taste!
It's that time of year once again and we are at Taste of London 2018 for the rest of the week. We are really excited to be here this year with our delicious blends, presented in a brand new 330ml pack.
With over 90 million picnics happening across the UK every year the pressure is on to create an alfresco menu with a difference. So if you’re tired of scotch eggs and soggy sandwiches, why not try a posh picnic instead? To really add some style to your outdoor party, don't forget to bring some seriously refreshing CRAFTED drinks.
The good news is, upgrading your outdoor dining needn’t break your budget. With just a few simple switches and some easy recipes, you can treat family, friends and loved ones to a posh picnic easily. Here are some of the ways you can posh up a picnic without splashing the cash.
1. Glam up your camp kitchen
Don’t be too quick to rule out a posh picnic when enjoying the great outdoors. Adding a collapsible table and chairs - or even draping a beautiful tablecloth over your existing table will glam everything up a notch or two. Don’t forget to dress your table to impress. Switch plastic plates and cutlery for ceramics and silver and your picnic is instantly elevated to a swish alfresco event. Extra touches such as cushions on the chairs or cloth napkins add even more style to the occasion.
2. Gorgeous glassware
Show off your sparkling beverages, fresh fruit juices and craft drinks in your best glassware. As much as you might be afraid to take your best crystal into the great outdoors, your taste buds will thank you for it. Scientists have confirmed that drinking from a heavy glass is more enjoyable - even if the feeling is only psychological. Not only will everyone enjoy their drinks more but your picnic will be eco-friendly, cheaper and look gorgeous.
3. Fresh finger foods
If you’ve got the time, preparing ahead and making some homemade treats is the icing on the cake for your posh picnic. Think colourful salads made with couscous or quinoa, succulent olives, crudités and smoked salmon. For a retro picnic with a quintessentially British feel why not whip up a batch of sweet onion sausage rolls. Mixing some classic favourites in with some upscale treats are just the thing to keep guests of all ages well fed - and suitably impressed!
Originally, picnics began as social events where all guests brought a dish, so don’t be afraid to ask for a contribution from friends if you’re feeling overwhelmed. Polish the silverware, install a trusty weather app and plan your posh picnic today. With these simple tips and a menu of mouth watering food, all that is left to choose is the location.
