California's iconic brand JAMBA JUICE opened its third store at the strategic location in SM Mall of Asia last Saturday, June 23. Attended by health buffs, media partners and bloggers like me, we were introduced to this brand representing active living bringing the best fruits to blend and match our needs. I for one get hooked with their healthy smoothies and oatmeal varieties early this year when me and my best gastronomic partner chanced upon their first-ever branch at Bonifacio High Street one late evening. Right now Jamba Juice is expanding its presence in the Philippines which is set to expand to 37 more locations within the next 10 years. Who doesn't want perfectly ripened and sun-sweetened premium fruits blended to perfection?

“Our hope is that locally grown Guimaras Mangoes will one day play a larger role in Jamba’s smoothie menu. In the meantime, promoting the planting of trees with a ride on the Blender Bike is our fun way of engaging our customers in this campaign to support the local mango industry."
Team members getting ready for the high foot traffic of their third store. Doing some game plan at this moment I surmise. It was an instant hit!
By the way, found these adages while waiting for my refreshing blended drink. Something to ponder. . .
Here's where the third Jamba Juice outlet is exactly situated. Beneath the stairs going up to second floor and near the ice skating rink. So when you stroll on this part of the mall, you can easily see this big juice seller with its loud yellow color body and green pylon light highlighting its brand luring to to blend your favorite smoothies.
