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.
In Paciugo Gelato & Caff?, you quickly find yourself right in the middle of Italy. Dark, rich espresso pours into cups, and a display case reveals velvety gelato flavors, each handmade onsite from fresh ingredients and amid fresh oxygen. The vision for this sweet alcove comes from founder Cristiana Ginatta, an Italian native who fell in love with her grandfather?s handmade gelato at a young age. Cristiana grew up in Italy, where she also attended culinary school with an emphasis on gelato making. In the late '90s, Cristiana and her family moved to Dallas, Texas, and she opened the first Paciugo Gelato & Caff?. The business has now expanded into dozens of locations across North America, each one filled with coffee, frappes, and gelato cones in more than 150 flavors.
Health Nut Cafe rolls its many wraps with both nutrition and flavor in mind.

Catering services can furnish office meetings or luncheons with fresh alternatives to lickable business cards.
So established is Circle K that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for—fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.
After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer the Take Away Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including Ball Park hot dogs. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with Premium Coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.
For hours, plumes of hickory-wood smoke crawl over whole cuts of beef brisket. When chefs haul the slabs from the smoker, each presents a study in contrast?caramelized, slightly crisped outsides surrounding soft, fall-apart meaty centers. Oklahoma Station BBQ?s house-specialty brisket crowns its selection of nine meats, which come glazed in signature hot or mild sauce. Both recipes blend ingredients such as brown sugar, roasted garlic, and apple-cider vinegar, and both remain closely guarded by former Spetsnaz agents. In addition to the restaurant's smoked-and-sauced meats, chefs also prepare an extensive sampling of requisite side dishes and desserts, from grilled corn on the cob to banana pudding.
At Jazmo'z Bourbon Street Café, the smooth stylings of jazz artists and soulful melodies of blues musicians mingle in the air with the aroma of spiced Cajun and creole seafood. The scents waft from bowls brimming with shrimp gumbo and platters heavy with crayfish étouffée, charbroiled oysters, and blackened catfish. The kitchen grill sizzles rib-eye steaks and Louis Armstrong burgers, whose blackened patties are topped with andouille sausage. Adventurous eaters can even munch on fried alligator bites as they listen to the nightly live performers and pretend they’re in New Orleans, where shrimp is recognized as the local currency. At the Oklahoma location, diners can also relax at outdoor tables perched right on the river canal.
