With more than 700 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company’s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets. Blended drinks dominate the menu, with options including fruit refreshers—made with naturally hydrating, electrolytic coconut water—and pre-boosted smoothies that can fill nutritional gaps with infusions of protein, immunity boosters, or antioxidants that neutralize accidentally swallowed pool water. The drink list also includes organic house-blend coffee and Mighty Leaf teas flavored with hibiscus flowers or peppermint. For those with heartier appetites, steel-cut oats steep in soymilk before being enhanced with toppings such as apples, cinnamon, and brown-sugar crumble. The lunch hour presents a trio of california flatbreads, each packing only about 320–420 calories, which can be pleasantly capped off with cups of Whirl’ns frozen yogurt.

In 1937, something hot, delicious, and glazed rolled through the sleepy town of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Seventy-seven years later, Vernon Rudolph's secret doughnut recipe lives on within the hundreds of Krispy Kreme locations scattered across the globe as well as within the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History, where Krispy Kreme is heralded as a 20th-century American icon.

The entire doughnut-making process, which customers can view up close and personal at many of Krispy Kreme?s outposts, begins with fresh ingredients and ends with the click of a fluorescent sign bearing the words, "Hot Doughnuts Now." From the original, mold-breaking glazed doughnut to newer doughnut varieties, such as Chocolate Iced with Kreme Filling, Glazed Raspberry Filled, and Glazed Chocolate Cake, each round dainty pairs with piping-hot coffee for a compact snack easily tucked into a pocket or clown shoe.

Longtime friends Dena Tripp and Debra Shwetz founded Nothing Bundt Cakes in 1997 after toiling for months to perfect their bundt-cake recipe and business concept. Now a national brand, Nothing Bundt Cakes specializes in daily made cakes crafted from high-quality ingredients?such as fresh eggs, real butter, and real cream cheese?and decorated with designs that tickle customers' nostalgia bones. Bakers forge cakes for special occasions, including congratulations, birthdays, or baby's first psychic predictions, in flavors such as red velvet, marble, or pecan praline. Confectioners can customize moist rounds with signature frosting petals and frosting drizzles, as well as personal images and messages. After visitors cross the threshold of a Nothing Bundt Cakes store, they're surrounded by whimsical gifts, vintage decor, pastel colors, and cozy furnishings, all combined to foster an atmosphere as folksy as Mark Twain's blog about Norman Rockwell.

At So Frais, customers can feel good about adopting a self-serving attitude by crafting their own brightly colored frozen yogurt treats that can be accessorized with a variety of natural toppings, including locally grown fruit. The signature low-calorie, probiotic-rich dairy freeze pours forth in a variety of rotating flavors, creating a sense of surprise as giggle-inducing as finding out your blind date is Cher ($2.95–$10.95). Guests looking to warm up stomach engines instead of freezing them can feast on savory fare such as stuffed pretzels—available in flavors such as cheddar-jalapeño and mozzarella pizza ($3.20)—or airy fistfuls of gourmet popcorn, available in six sweet and savory varietals ($2.49–$5.99). A selection of all natural cupcakes ($1.25–$2.50) and french macarons sound out the saccharine-rich half of the menu ($1–$2), while a mini croissant can help add authenticity to your mid-morning office-place rendition of "frère Jacques" ($1.70).

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.

The bakers at PJ's Bagels know you don't need crazy toppings and weird add-ins if you start with a good recipe. That's why they let their recipe shine by serving bagels with only traditional accompaniments. They smear a choice of cream cheese and spreads on classic or cheesy bagels, which creates a complementary fusion of sweet or savory flavors without hiring a culinary matchmaker. For bigger meals, the staff can also layer together classic deli sandwiches filled with lox, pastrami, or turkey.
