Is it really worth it...?
P200 just for juice? Are you insane? That's the usual reaction I get when I hear my friends talking about Jamba Juice.
It seriously irritates me every time I hear people say that; "it's nothing special", "I could get it cheaper from fruitas/big chill etc etc" and the like. While it's true you can get the same amount of juice for half the price (Fruitas), the quality is seriously superior with Jamba Juice.
The reason why you may ask? The reason is because they just use fruits that are of better quality then what you'd find in other establishments. From what I've observed they're using IQF(Individually Quick Frozen) fruits which I'm pretty sure are of better quality than what you'd find locally (Exceptions: Mangoes, Pineapples, Calamansi. These fruits are produced best by the Philippines hands down.)
After gulping down this cup of fruity goodness you will notice that you feel full. The reason for this is that Jamba Juice's juices are more fruit heavy than their current competitors in the Philippines. Jamba Juice doesn't rely on simple syrup to make your juices sweeter, it just uses the natural fruit sugars coming from the amount of fruit they put in your drink. It's like a drink and meal in one.
P200 for a drink and a meal isn't that bad, although I do have to say it is still a bit pricey. I'd have to say that it's worth it because of the quality of what you're getting, and also it offers something more than the competition that justifies its price. If you're honestly going to compare the other establishments mentioned above to Jamba Juice, they're not even in the same level to be compared to be honest.

IQF is an abbreviation for “individually quick frozen”, a process which freezes food rapidly so there is no damage to the cellular structure of the food. The packaged food goes through a blast freezer IQF tunnel at 40 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. The finished bags are then shipped directly to the supermarket freezer section.
