One of Sugar and Spice Bakery's cupcakes is like an edible choose-your-own-adventure novel. The customer guides every step of its creation, starting by selecting mini, regular, or jumbo cupcakes. Next, they pick one of 11 flavors?such as spice or vanilla?and decide on fillings such as banana cream. They then opt for cream-cheese, peanut-butter, or housemade buttercream icing. Final touches might include sprinkles and slices of strawberry.
The talented bakers use the same ingredients to create round and sheet cakes, which present larger canvases for designs. Icing and fondant transform into superheroes, logos of favorite sports teams, or even a photograph of the birthday boy or girl.
And Sugar and Spice Bakery isn't limited to sweets. Customers can nosh on sandwiches such as hot meatball and mozzarella, corned beef on rye with swiss cheese and pickles, or the veggie sandwich, topped with avocado, mozzarella, and peppers.
Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt has been here for years??30 years, in fact. At first Jeff Barnes began serving frozen yogurt as an offshoot of his health food store. Soon thereafter, he couldn't keep cups filled fast enough; so in 1983, he began serving the chilly delight exclusively. The rich flavors, which include pistachio, s'mores, pumpkin pie, and salted caramel, all made with real milk and real fruit and available in low-fat and nonfat options. The staff also works to be as eco-friendly as possible, which includes filling cups that bio-degrade within 21 days and spoons that self-destruct in 60 seconds.
If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice?s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn?t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it?s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there?s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there?s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice?all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit?which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
Sweet Dreams evokes a cozy New York lounge with large windows, ample table space, and several plush sofas. But the real centerpiece is the dessert case, filled with fruit tarts, homemade apple pies, and fresh-baked cupcakes. Those who don't slip into a sugar trance can grab a warm focaccia sandwich or throw back a few espressos. Diners may also put in a bakery order for a custom cake; past designs include a circus tent, a guitar, and a giant Brussels sprout.
