Innocent Smoothie For Autumn

Similar to the summer smoothie I reviewed back in August this one is the Autumn variant. The label suggests that this should invoke thoughts of bonfires, foraging squirrels and soaking your conkers in vineger. I'm sure that there are a number of readers not from the U.K. scratching their heads and wondering what conkers are. Well they're kind of a nut that drops from trees around Autumn time. Traditionally schoolboys have collected them, stuck string through the middle and battled their conker against another's, the idea being that the victor still has his conker in one piece at the end of the battle. Kind of like Pokemon with nuts. Wikipedia expands on it further here.
Anyway, back to the drink. It's a blend of blackcurrants and gooseberries which makes it a very sharp drink. It's not unpleasant though. Innocent once again have a winner on their hands as far as I'm concerned.
