Today, I took along fellow food Blogger, Shaina Wizov or Take a Bite Out of Boca to sample 6 of these new juices. We arrived at the Jamba Juice in Boca Raton, on Yamato Road in the Boca Village plaza, just west of 95 where Manager Brittney was cheerfully awaiting us. She soon brought over a tray with the assorted juices we were about to try. What a visual, and the hues were as colorful as one would find in a rainbow.
According to the info I received from the PR firm, Jamba Juice has always offered fresh-squeezed juices and this new expanded line of juices significantly expands the offerings, both in terms of the ingredients and the variety of blends. In terms of how the new juices are different, four of the six juices (ones with super greens or pineapple) have a whole food fruit and or a vegetable component blended in. The unique process of juicing and blending allows for whole foods, including the nutrient-rich pulp and skin, to be incorporated into the juice.
The expanded juice platform incorporates high nutrient and on-trend whole foods including kale, beets, cucumbers, apples, oranges and chia seeds, blended into convenient, great-tasting and affordable juices. All the produce and vegetables are locally grown underscoring Jamba’s commitment to ‘ground to cup’ in just three days!
The new juice flavors that we sampled are as follows:
· Citrus Kick – orange, apple, pineapple, ginger
· Garden Medley – super greens (spinach), carrot, apple, chia
· Orange Reviver – orange, beet, banana, apple, chia
· Veggie Harvest – beet, carrot, (spinach), apple, ginger
· Carrot Cayenne – carrot, apple, ginger, cayenne
· Tropical Greens – super greens (spinach), apple, pineapple, chia
"The new line of fresh juices ushers in a new chapter at Jamba Juice, underscoring its pledge to living well and satisfying customer’s desires for convenient, wholesome, great-tasting juices. Jamba Juice was founded in 1990 as the original Juice Club and is leveraging its juicing and blending heritage to meet the growing demand for fresh, hand-crafted, made to order juices.
Jamba Juice works hand-in-hand with local produce farms and distributors and pledges to have juices ‘from ground to cup’ in three days or less. Each of the juices are freshly-made with locally grown ingredients, and hand-crafted to bring alive each fruit and vegetable that compose the delicious blend. The USDA/MyPlate recommends eating a variety and rainbow of colors of fruits and vegetables daily, and these fresh juices contain all that goodness in one nutrient-packed beverage. Jamba Juice is committed to improving Americans’ well-documented fruit and veggie deficit.
Jamba Juice’s dedicated team members have completed the Jamba MBA program (as in the ‘Master of Blending Arts’!) courses that provides personnel a high-level of knowledge relating to the nutritional value and health benefits of Jamba Juice’s offerings.
In addition to living well and fostering goodness in each of its juices, Jamba Juice also engages in giving back to the community by advocating the building of healthy communities through its involvement with local schools and area non-profits. For more information visit, www.JambaJuice.com."
The Tropical Greens was the last of the six juices we tasted and was another favorite of mine. I liked the way it looked, first of all. The balance of the greens with the fruits was perfect.
