Jamba Juice, the oh-so-famous American smoothie brand having over 850 stores worldwide has landed in UAE and has opened its door in the recently inaugurated YAS Mall in the capital. The launch day was indeed a much awaited day as lots of fans are eager for the grand opening and have attended on their customized invitations for the day sent to them, they celebrated a week of fun-filled activities with lots of free smoothies and juices.
I have always loved smoothie as it falls somewhere between juices and ice-cream and keep my guilt level on average for not consuming creamy-milk base product or end up on blanched fruit juices, hence it’s a perfect choice to provide a better-for-you alternative for a guilty conscience like me.
On our visit to the branch we were well-assisted by Mr. Shobad and we had a real fruitful day watching the whole process of making those delicious smoothies with the most-tastiest fruit chunks as they are preserved via special IQF (Instant quick frozen) method thereby plucked when they are at their best ripen stage and contained all its freshness and fullness of flavor. And yes we tasted our way through the lineup and were surprised by the results.
My personal favorites were Aloha Pineapple, Peach Pleasure and Pomegranate Paradise. Kids thoroughly enjoyed the Banana Berry & Mango a-go-go. One must try their special treat for Middle East customers, new flavours have been invented exclusively for the region including date smoothies and juice blends prepared from local favourite fruits. Other amazing flavors are Strawberry Wild or Razzmatazz
Jamba Juice intends to offer other products too, but for me it is as an on-the-go snack/smoothie option. Their health wraps are not loaded and are baseline with minimal ingredients, if you ever thought of dropping those greasy burgers, then you must pick up one of their delicious wrap, one of them was actually lettuce-wrapped and tasted unusually good after few bites. We also tried their veggie wrap however it’s not as tempting as the lettuce and chicken one.
You can try their breakfast bowls too it ranges from Berry, chunky strawberry and mango peach flavour. Their hearty breakfast has ‘Whole Food Nutrition’ value and is light on stomach.
Location wise it’s one lively spot and you won’t miss their Jamba Dance, Banana Man, and those loud Cheers and the Boost, the Jamba Juices staff will surely keep you entertained and you will remember you visit.
I thoroughly loved my experience; here are some brownie points for your visit:
- Happy hour offer from 9-11 om, if you buy 24oz smoothie you will get a health wrap free.
- You shall take your selfie, or group selfie i-e Gelfie or family portrait felfie to win buy one get one smoothie free vouchers.
