Asked Questions

WHY DOES YOUR PURE FRUIT NECTAR AND GREAT VEGETABLE JUICE (GVJ) TASTE SO AMAZING?

"Curly monkey good!" - that was my daughter Lydia's line after tasting our juices. Below is our formula:

  • Source great fruit
  • Taste them before buying
  • Use a state of the art machine to extract juices
  • Blend with ripe and ready fruit
  • We do NOT add anything - NO water, sugar, colouring, or preservatives.
  • Bottle it
YOUR SOUPS ARE FANTASTIC! HOW DO YOU DO IT?
We are glad that you are enjoying them. We make all of our soups in house. We use ingredients from our own vegetable section. We never use MSG and never use anything from a pre-made can or mix. We sometimes try and push the envelope to shake, rattle, and roll your taste buds. We have 9000 taste buds in our mouth - we intend to give them all a workout once in a while. Enjoy!
WHY DO YOU HAVE A $2.99 TABLE?

Our idea is to make shopping for veggies easy & fun. On the island table, portion-sized product is hand wrapped to maintain freshness & quality. Pick any portion-sized package for your next meal.
