Dr. Justin Holt, who studied optometry at the Inter American University of Puerto Rico, conducts appointments in either English or Spanish at West Point Eye Center. There, after offering patients bottled water, he examines eyes, fits them for contact lenses, co-manages LASIK surgeries, and treats a range of ocular issues, focusing particularly on astigmatism.
When a client comes in searching for the perfect pair of frames, they browse through selections from Guess, Oakley, and Banana Republic. The frames are then sent off to the lab for a lens fitting and laser installation. When the frames arrive back at West Point Eye Center, Dr. Holt personally checks the prescription of the glasses before handing them off to the client, who takes them home along with a bottle of lens-cleaning solution, a microfiber cleaning cloth, a mini screwdriver, and a Ghirardelli chocolate. All frames and lenses come with a two-year warranty instead of the industry-standard one-year warranty, which never seems valid after you’ve set them on fire just to see what happens.
At Yogurt Stop, over 70 flavors of frozen yogurt come together with over 50 toppings to make delicious, customized treats. Each day, customers will find a rotation of ten flavors, such as strawberry, chocolate, cupcake, and pineapple. Then, they can coat the low-fat and non-fat treats with fruits and other toppings, or select a fruit smoothie or bubble tea.
While the walls’ crimson mosaic tiles glitter in the sunlight that filters in through large windows, CherryBerry’s guests pump out rotating flavors of frozen yogurt and lounge on puffy, mod-style furniture. With each creamy bite, it becomes more evident that the yogurt was made from all-natural ingredients: the strawberry contains tiny chunks of fruit, and the chocolate’s rich flavor could never have come from a powdered mix.
With more than 50 fruit, nut, and candy options overflowing from its bins and canisters, the topping bar plays home to fresh berries and healthful granola as well as candy-coated chocolates and sprinkles. Like a tag-team dance-off at the U.N., the yogurt itself features four types of live and active cultures, all of which aid in digestion. Low-fat, fat-free, and gluten-free flavors abound, as do sorbet options with no dairy and Splenda-sweetened yogurts with no added sugar.

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.

With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
Southwestern flavors—spicy ones, namely—marry traditional Mexican dishes on the menu at Bandidos Border Grill. Fresh jalapenos jolt the carne asada, grilled peppers accompany the fajitas, and the eatery's signature salsa tops burritos so large that local farmers have stood them up and used them as structurally unsound silos. But when it comes to structural integrity, the restaurant's exposed cobblestone surrounds guests as they sample savory meats rolled inside tortillas—shrimp, barbacoa, and slow-cooked pork to name a few. Visits to Bandidos Border Grill might conclude with traditional Mexican desserts such as flan and ice cream.
