I have heard of Jamba Juice before. I have seen Jamba Juice before. In fact I’ve walked past it in our mall many times. I’ve just never taken the opportunity to step inside and see what Jamba Juice had to offer.
Jamba Juice offers a variety of fruit smoothies, steel-cut oatmeal, sandwiches, all-natural baked goods and other healthy treats. I knew whatever it was that they offered had to be good because every time I walked by there was a line. Never, ever did I see the place empty.
I learned that Jamba Juice was offering consumers a “boost” of Quaker in their smoothies (.25 cents extra). I am a fan of Quaker products. Plus just one boost can provide you with 16 games of whole grains, which is equal to a full serving. I know for a fact that I don’t get enough whole grains in my diet. What better way to get whole grains in your diet than with a flavorful fruit smoothie.
I stopped by our local Jamba Juice at the mall and decided to try it out for myself. It was hard to select which smoothie I wanted. They all sounded so good.
Once I made my selection I asked the gentleman taking my order for a boost of Quaker.
I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was thinking that the boost was just a spoonful of oats. It might very well be but once it’s put in the blender is grinds it up into a very fine “powder” like substance. You can’t even notice it in the smoothie.
I did noticed from time to time that a little piece of grain was in my mouth. Nothing horrible. It was barely noticeable. That had to be from the boost of Quaker.
To give you an idea of just how much I enjoyed my Jamba Juice smoothie with a boost of Quaker I went back to the mall two other times in a matter of two weeks and each time stopped by Jamba Juice to try a new smoothie flavor – all with a boost of Quaker. It’s my new favorite thing. Lucky for me Jamba Juice is only at our local mall. I am not a fan of going to the mall so I won’t be stopping by daily. I have a feeling if one was closer I’d be there every day.
The new Quaker boost is available at Jamba Juice locations across the country. To find a location near you please visit www.JambaJuice.com. You can also check them out on Facebook and Twitter. They are also on Pinterest.
