Since opening their first location in 1996, Robeks' associates and franchise owners across the country have been passionate about the benefits of healthier eating, and what they can do to help guests maintain active and healthy lifestyles, all through portable smoothies. Customers can step up to the counter and order from a menu of fresh, premium ingredients in unique, made-to-order combinations. Robeks Premium Fruit Smoothies aims to create innovative ways to reach the daily recommended 9-13 servings of fruits and vegetables without compromising on flavor. Each Robeks Premium Fruit Smoothies location makes a concerted effort to support the neighborhood it resides in, through local organizations, such as Save the Children.
Smoothie King smoothies combine fresh fruit, natural juices, and special nutritional enhancers into more than 90 flavors (you can customize, add, and subtract the extras) of icy delight, all of which focus on achieving one of seven nutritional goals. Try an antioxidant-rich Pomegranate Punch with pomegranate, bananas, blueberries, apple juice, soy protein, and Turbinado sweetener to stay healthy. Weight-conscious en-smuthiasts can trim down and float away with the Celestial Cherry High, packed with bananas, black cherry, papaya, Turbinado, and honey, and unpacked with fat. You can also customize any smoothie by adding enhancers or “make it skinny” by cutting out the honey and Turbinado.
Just like Mom used to say: "If it looks good enough to eat, I bet it's from that delicious sweet store next to the old gin mill. You know the one I'm talking about, right? No, not that one. I'm talking about Edibles Incredible Desserts, where I buy all my artful, tantalizing desserts and store them in my chest freezer next to my year supply of spinach quiches." And Mom was always right. Today's Groupon gets you $25 worth of melt-in-your-mouth, delectable creations for only $10 at Edibles Incredible Desserts.

Marble Slab Creamery's sensory experience begins by walking past the storefront, where the buttery scent of fresh-baked waffle cones drifts out into the air. Gourmet ice creams are freshly crafted onsite from Marble Slab’s original recipe, which entices customer's eyes with a rainbow of colors. Once clients have made a flavor selection, they choose from a smorgasbord of mix-ins, from fresh fruit to nuts to candy and crumbled cookies, which an ice-cream chef then hand folds in atop a frosty marble slab before packing the finished custom-designed flavor masterpiece into a homemade waffle cone.
In addition to procuring handheld treats, Marble Slab Creamery can send creations home in a variety of other formats, such as ice-cream cakes, cupcakes, and hand-packed quarts, or in the capable hands of a catering team for sprucing up special events such a corporate get-togethers or school functions with portable marble slabs or sundae bars in tow.
Having always found great joy in baking confections and cakes, owner and baker Gru was finally convinced by impressed friends to make a career of it. When she would bring her homemade truffles or cake pops to parties, they often told her through mouthfuls of sweets that she was no ordinary baker. With that encouragement, she opened Juju Sweetz, where those creations as well as her mini cupcakes and other handheld delectables are now available to all. Also gifted with a flair for design, Gru customizes orders, sculpting cake pops into shapes such as flags and stars for the Fourth of July and preparing bushels of treats for other special events, including weddings, birthdays, and baby showers.
