Started by two personal trainers, The Perfect Blend maintains a focus on health as its staffers sell nutritional supplements, teach diet and exercise strategies, and serve healthy low-fat, no-sugar-added smoothies and frozen yogurt. Flat-screen televisions display sporting events and “Hans and Franz” sketches to inspire in-store athletes perusing walls of protein powders, vitamins, and meal-replacement shakes. Meanwhile, self-serve frozen yogurt machines quietly whir as they mix their creamy contents, including no-sugar-added vanilla and cake batter flavors, into frozen swirls. Customers can also rev up their snacks with toppings from a self-serve bar stocked with healthy fresh fruit, honey, and crunchy maple pecan granola, perfect for camouflaging the gummy bears, sprinkles, and M&Ms also available.
In 1976, Jean Bernheim founded Sunshine Health Foods with the vision of improving customers’ health and well-being through vitamins and herbal supplements, all-natural household products, and wholesome, delicious food. After 30 years in the business, Jean passed on her expertise, knowledge, and jewel-encrusted scepter to her protégée, Shelia, who now helps clients treat common ailments and promotes a healthy lifestyle with a wealth of minerals, sports supplements, and essential nutrients. After guests peruse shelves stocked with herbal shampoos, homeopathic pet products, and omega-3 supplements, they stop for a nosh at the café, which tempts diners with a spread of nitrate- and preservative-free deli meat, fresh carrot and fruit juices, freshly baked muffins, and colorful, crisp salads.
Since first sharing traditional family-style delicacies with customers in 1985, The Ham'Let has treated taste buds to an assortment of non-frozen meats slathered in its secret glaze of honey, spices, and sugar. Patrons can consume completely cooked, sugar-cured honeybee hams at any temperature and freeze each fresh ham hunk for up to six months for future savoring or repurposed careers as stalagmites. The Ham'Let’s inventory appeases many palates with honey-glazed, spiral-sliced, or peppered smoked turkeys, copious condiments, and an extensive selection of side dishes and gourmet desserts.
