I did see some somewhere - think it might have been Waitrose. The pots seemed quite small for the price but I can see they would be good in an emergency.

I'm not really a smoothie person, but I see on their website they're claiming it's cheaper to buy their smoothies (the cartons rather than the little bottles) than make the equivalent at home. I suppose a smoothie requires quite a lot of fruit?

i've mentioned these in a couple of threads on here.

they seem a bit difficult to get hold of, the shops that do have them seem to mostly stock the non-vegan ones, so be careful if you do find any. i managed to get the sweet potato chilli in Sainsburys when they were on special offer, 2 for 5 which i think is much better value than full price.

I've definitely seen them in Sainsburys, maybe in Waitrose too. I've bought them a few times when they are on offer (sometimes they are 2.49).
There was a seasonal special one recently which was vegan, it was a curry. They are all really nice imo and the pots hold more than they appear to - it's a decent portion I think (and I'm a bit greedy :)).

It says vegetarian or vegetarian and vegan on the packaging sandra.

I think they were in the veggie chilled section mchelle81, where the quorn stuff is kept.

bad news guys...
I for one will never be buying Innocent anything, ever again - now they've sold out to Coca Cola :(

I don't care if they're vegan, organic or the most ethically produced product on the planet

I've seen the veg pots both in Tesco and Sainstury's. Now the questions is are they good? I am new to vegan food and I don't always like how it tastes :(
I've read an article and they say you can try out the Thai Curry veg pot for free (http://www.worldofdeals.co.uk/freebies/grocery/innocent-thai-curry-veg-pot-for-free). I must have found it too late because now it says they've given away already today's veg posts.
Anybody tried getting the free veg pots?

Hello vegJenny, welcome to the forum.

I haven't seen the free offer but I have had the vegan ones a couple of times and thought they were OK. I never think pre-prepared stuff tastes as good as what even I (as a fairly lazy and unimaginative cook) could make myself using fresh vegetables, but they can be handy in an "emergency".

Please let us know what you think if you try one. You need to check the packaging because not all are vegan.

Thanks for your comment. I was also thinking at these veg post for emergency cases :D
I'll keep an eye for that free veg pot the next days. If it doesn't work out I'll head to Tesco and buy one. I'll let you know how it goes ;)

If they weren't so expensive I'd happily live off them. :D The small Tesco near where I live has 4 or 5 different kinds (all vegan) in their veggie section, and they are gorgeous.

They're okay but nothing amazing and definitely not worth the price. Seems to me that the reason for them being so expensive is that they add things like loose spinach leaves which have a short shelf life meaning the whole product has to be short dated just because of a couple of ingredients.

Much cheaper to get an own brand curry and a bag of spinach and combine them yourself, tastes about the same as well.

I agree. I bought two of them yesterday half price in Tesco. I find them very bland and quite sickly. My daughter took one forkful and couldn't eat anymore. It wouldn't be so bad if they were cheaper but even at half price they were still 1.74 and in my opinion they just aren't worth that. :(

I tried two pots a while ago, when they were BOGOF at Sainsbury's. I ate less than half of them both. I just didn't like them. The flavours were not my 'thing' and I didn't like the way everything was mixed together. It made it a rather bland, monotonous eating experience. So, on both occasions, I gave up.

It is a shame though, as they are healthy, vegan and super convenient. Plus, everything else I have tried from Innocent is lush.

I can see where Corum was coming from with the above posting made 2 years ago. What I find particularly sad is that the people at Innocent are still coming out with the same jokey, ethical tosh they were coming out with pre-Coca Cola, as though nothing has changed.
