Every day at more than 770 locations, Jamba Juice proves that good nutrition can be both convenient and delicious. Since the beginning, the company has based its philosophy on choosing whole fruits and all-natural ingredients over artificial flavorings and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial trans fats, and it makes additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.

Although Jamba Juice is serious about using wholesome ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate. Whole fruits and veggies can be blended into an extensive menu of great-tasting smoothies and freshly squeezed juices. But Jamba Juice?s commitment to keeping healthy eating simple informs its solid-food options, too. Customers can kick-start their morning with a steaming bowl of slow-cooked, steel-cut oatmeal, or stay energized throughout the day with six varieties of Energy Bowls: nutrient-rich blends of whole fruit, Greek yogurt or soymilk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits.

In addition to nourishing and energizing the human body, Jamba Juice fights childhood obesity by sponsoring Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative encourages fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active?which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

Love & Yogurt's chrome dispensers fill cups with two styles of the frozen treat. Ronnybrook Farm in upstate New York crafts the parlor's nonfat PureLove flavors with natural sweeteners and no chemicals, fillers, or Play-Doh. Sweetheart flavors take inspiration from dessert, with options such as thin mint and cake batter, both low- or nonfat. Once guests fill their cups, they move to the white-framed toppings station, where they'll have to decide between fruit, cookies, candy, and syrups.

Draped in fondant flowers and bright swirls of buttercream, Buddy Valastro's cakes would catch anyone's eye?but that's especially true for fans of reality TV. The master baker and his visually stunning creations both star on TLC's Cake Boss, which has filmed at the Valastro family's Hoboken confectionery, Carlo's Bakery, since 2009.

Buddy's cakes have also won national notice beyond the show, including features in publications such as The Knot and Brides. And beyond designing delectable cakes for special occasions, Buddy shares his secrets through hands-on cake decorating classes, which are taught by his dedicated team of bakers at locations throughout New Jersey.

A cake decorating specialist for Carlo's Bakery, Gabby Parisi, talked to us about what it's like to attend the bakery's fondant cake decorating classes (buttercream cake decorating classes are also available).

Are the fondant classes beginner-friendly?

?People find fondant intimidating because the tools and know-how aren?t readily available, but when you come to the class, you realize it?s even easier than working with buttercream."

What types of decorations can students put on their cakes?

"We use water and a paintbrush to apply flowers, fall leaves, bows, and other shapes. It?s super easy once you know all the tricks?you can do almost anything [with fondant], it's really kind of magical. Buddy likes to describe it as the Houdini of cake decorating.?

Are classes available at all Carlo?s Bakery locations?

"Classes are available at our Morristown, Red Bank, and Ridgewood New Jersey bakeries as well as at our Jersey City/Lackawanna Cake Factory. There are no classrooms at our Hoboken, Westfield, or Las Vegas bakeries."

What?s the craziest cake ever made in Carlo's Bakery?

"I?m sure a lot of people will be familiar with the cakes from the TV show, Cake Boss. Buddy always says the craziest cake we?ve ever made was the Transformer, or the life-size Nascar cake."

Maybe you'll be drawn in by the window, displaying baskets filled with rustic baguettes and sweet tarts. Or perhaps the enticing aroma of freshly baked bread will beckon you inside. Either way, it's hard to walk by Choc O Pain's storefront. Step inside one of the bakery's two locations, and you'll be greeted with glass cases displaying French treats such as flaky croissants, fresh fruit tarts, and cookies just like the ones hanging on the walls of the Louvre. Though the menu abounds with treats for sweet teeth, guests can stop in for simple, yet elegant meals of veggie quiche and sandwiches served on homemade ciabatta.

Bagels are typically thick, slightly misshapen circles made out of soft, warm dough. But at Bagel Smashery, the bagels aren't thick. As the eatery's name suggests, its culinary team smashes bagels into toasted hot and easy to eat bagel sandwiches that deliver cream cheese, specialty spreads, or sandwich fillings. Nearly 20 years after their creation, the bagel smashes have become a beloved local bite, continuing to garner popularity with their unorthodox presentation and by giving diners an excuse to yell, "Bagel Smash!" in the Incredible Hulk's voice. At breakfast, the Bagel Smash bookend egg-and-meat sandwiches, or arrive smeared with specialty cream cheeses flavored with strawberries, green olives, or sundried tomatoes. In the afternoon, they curb midday cravings with combinations such as pepperoni and cheese, chicken and veggies, or bacon, lettuce, and tomato. After diners down Wrap Smashes and Potato Smashes, dessert bagels end meals on a sweet note with a slathering of Nutella and marshmallow.

La Bouche Cafe feels distinctly European. From the sunny white patio tables to the pearl-strung chandeliers, everything in the cafe evokes an afternoon spent in a duchess's tea room sipping Earl Grey and asking questions about the constitutional monarchy. At La Bouche, diners can also sip tea, pairing cups with specialty crepes. Each thin pancake is filled with a choice of fruit, bananas slathered in Nutella, or even cuts of smoked salmon that add a savory note to the famous French dish. Only the slightly heavier end of the menu, chefs toss salads with fresh fruits and vegetables, and prepare sandwiches such as the croque monsieur piled with pear, ham, and Swiss cheese.
