On a hot Sunday afternoon, the brood visited the JAMBA JUICE (JJ) store in Alabang Town Center. The place was full of weekend customers happily lounging, chatting ,and some ,surfing the net. We were warmly greeted by Marketing Manager James Ranada and the entire enthusiastic crew of JJ.
IT ALL STARTED WITH A BLENDER
The brand had modest beginnings in California and was brought to Manila on November 11, 2011. Ever since , it has built a strong Filipino following and continues to attract customers with its healthy lifestyle philosophy.
At first, the menu board overwhelmed us . (Admittedly, we have seen several JAMBA JUICE stores in Los Angeles, but it is only back here in Manila that the family and I had the opportunity to try the products. ) So many drinks to choose from and everything looked so good! My son M was the first to make up his mind. His choice – the creamy smoothie CHOCOLATE MOO’D.
MAKE YOUR OWN SMOOTHIE
The kids got very excited when they were told that they can make their own smoothies! M and R were both given aprons and caps, made to wash their hands and then off they went to create their drinks .
I, on the other hand, chose their classic smoothie – the bestseller BANANA BERRY. James told me that this particular drink accounts for 70% of their daily sales. Can’t wait to try!
DELICIOUSLY GOOD FOR YOU!
All the drinks are made of natural ingredients. There are no sugars, no artificial flavors , no trans fats and no preservatives.
THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH IN YOUR DRINK
Acai is a small berry harvested in the Amazon forests. These small berries have powerful antioxidants that cleanse the body of free radicals. James told me that the farmers who harvest the berries have hands that look five years younger than their faces. With that anecdote, I said , “One LARGE Acai Supercharger please!!!” haha 🙂
THE CEREAL FINALE
We were made to try the steel-cut oatmeal , and boy, was it super- duper GOOD! This is definitely a must-try for all of you!

WHY THE BQP RECOMMENDS JAMBA JUICE
Oftentimes our go-to beverages are calorie-ridden sodas and artificially flavored juices. We even pack the latter as part of our children’s snacks for school. I like JJ because it’s a healthy alternative to the sugar-loaded drinks. Furthermore, I went behind their counter, saw how clean and fresh the ingredients were and even made my own healthy drink. Taste was never compromised in all of the smoothies I tried.
