Festive Food Review #1: Pret Elderberry & Blackberry Spicy Winter Pick-Me-Up

Welcome to the first in my series of seasonal food reviews. As busy senior executives, we don't have time to prepare our own lunches. But we all still want to enjoy fine, freshly-prepared food. At Christmas, I want mine unashamedly themed.

Pret's cheeky little seasonal smoothie combines the freshness of sharp fruits with the warmth of Christmas spice. It's slightly less gloopy than the standard mango smoothie or similarly-coloured Vitamin Volcano. But it's a great balance of flavours, and a refreshing and healthy nod to Christmas.

prgeek rating: Christmassy but good for you. 8/10.
