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 $5, you get $10 worth of smoothies, juices, and light fare at Get Juiced in Guelph.
Get Juiced, the brainchild of Guelph Farmers' Market stalwart Jonathan Rice, blends 100% juice beverages from produce freshly pressed in-store. Juices range from the liquefied sunshine squeezed from oranges ($3+) by way of vigorous bear hugs, to the house concoction of carrots, apples, and beets, dubbed Bliss ($3+). Smoothies further expand the café's botanical taste experiments with options such as the Primary Colours smoothie, coalescing strawberries, bananas, and blueberries in a vortex of apple juice and yogourt ($3.99+). Slurpers can customize their drinks thanks to an array of boosts, super boosts, and high-flying alley-oops from protein powder ($0.50+), wheatgrass shots ($1+), and other add-ins. Sate stomach rumblings demanding chewable nourishment by gnawing on paninis and wraps ($6.49), or grab a hunk of baklava ($2) from the snack menu.
