Jamba Juice Introducing New Line of Sandwiches, Salads, Tea

Jamba Juice Goes Beyond Smoothies, Debuts Food

Starbucks isn't the only beverage chain looking to regain its footing: Jamba Juice is also struggling to get its mojo back. In addition to its recently introduced oatmeal and licensed supermarket products, the smoothie giant will also unveil a new menu of food items.

Jamba's new menu will contain food items such as wraps, salads, and flatbreads, and will debut next week in California, with stores in the rest of the country following over the year.

The ready-made wraps include Asian-Style Chicken, Chimichurri Chicken, Gobble'licious Turkey, Greek Goddess, and Grains and Greens for vegans, and two salads, Caesar the Day, and Couscous Produce. All wraps and salads will retail at $5.50.

In addition, Jamba is also installing turbo ovens in stores for new baked-to-order California Flatbreads, which will come in four flavors: Four Cheesy ($3.50), Smokehouse Chicken, Tomo Artichoko, and MediterraneYum ($3.75). The company is also adding iced tea beverages and fruit-tea infusions in exotic flavors like prickly pear, passion fruit, and pomegranate. All will be made without high-fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors.

In times when money's tight and people are more health conscious than ever, smoothies have seemingly fallen by the wayside. Because they're not filling enough — yet often have the calories — to be a meal, these fruity frosties have never played a part in my everyday routine. While it's a risky move for the chain, I could see how its on-the-go options might be appealing. Would you buy food at Jamba Juice?

Food plus a smoothie would be how much then? Like $10? That seem like a lot for a quick lunch you get to go. @AmandaonMaui: I don't know if Jamba Juice really needs to do anything to respond to what Starbucks does. I don't really feel they are in direct competition. Most people aren't deciding between a smoothie or a coffee.

gross. think about it. they don't have kitchens on-site, so they will be trucking in the pre-made food from some central warehouse kitchen to be heated up in a "turbo-oven?" nasty.

I would! Come to think of it, I have a gift card from Jamba Juice that I've gotta use up...

This is fantastic news! I've always wondered why they never had food. Too bad there aren't any locations near me anymore :[
