Butlers, forced by billionaires to mash piles of fruit by hand, invented blenders to prevent carpal tunnel and subsequent demotion to human towel rack. Reap the benefits of their creation with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of smoothies, hot dogs, burgers, and more at Flashback Smoothies in Winston-Salem.
Flashback’s thick, robust smoothies are chock-full of fresh fruit, juices, yogurt, sherbet, and healthful supplements. Indulge in one of 16 custom blends, such as the antioxidant-rich V8 Splash, an antioxidant-rich synthesis of V8 Splash berry blend, strawberries, blueberries, and raspberry sherbet ($4.63). Or, test the strength of a boastful straw against a thick and creamy peanut butter smoothie ($4.63), made with milk, peanut butter, non-fat vanilla yogurt, and chocolate syrup. For customers looking to try their hand at the dark art of recipe alteration, Flashback offers a create-your-own smoothie option, which allows guests to mix and match one juice, two fruits, and a choice of non-fat vanilla yogurt or sherbet ($4.40). Customers also have the option of supercharging a smoothie with a complimentary supplement, such as protein powder for muscle building, ginseng for energy, brewer's yeast for vitamins, or lecithin to aid in the break down of fat and cholesterol.
Those morally opposed to matter’s liquid state can chew righteously on Flashback’s solid foodstuffs, such as toasted all-beef, turkey, or smoked-sausage hotdogs ($1.99–$3.15), cheeseburgers made from Angus beef ($3.25), and toasted sub sandwiches ($3.95–$4.45). Settle in at one of Flashback's patio rocking chairs to nosh on a sextet of oven roasted rotisserie wings ($4.95), or quench a tummy fire with a cookies and cream milkshake ($3.25).
Flashback Smoothies has been featured in the Winston-Salem Monthly, which named it one of the best ice cream shops in the area.
- While the ice cream was delicious, the smoothies are superb - thick and creamy, hearty enough to serve as an on-the-go lunch. If you have time - and room - pair a smoothie with an award-winning hot dog and chips as a combo meal. – Erin Etheridge, Winston-Salem Monthly
