OK, so we’ve already clued you in to the eye-opening joys of the Starbucks Secret Menu, then we did it again for you with our Updated Guide and maybe one more time with the newest 12 for good measure (we never want you to get bored with your coffee choices).
But Starbucks isn’t the only place that makes delicious drinks and has a secret menu: Jamba Juice has just as many secret drink options, they’re just as delicious, and they have much cuter names (always a selling point).
While the folks at Jamba Juice don’t mind taking your off-the-menu order and going with you down the experimental drink rabbit hole, please don’t expect your Jamba Juice team member to necessarily know these crazy concoctions by name, or be familiar with the recipes.
Additionally, if you’re ordering something complicated and unusual, consider waiting until the line dies down before you ask for something brand-new and crazy — and most of all, remember to tip.
If you’re a Jamba Juice devotee, you may already be aware of some of these combinations (the Gummi Bear is especially popular, and many Jamba Juice team members will probably know that one already). Some of the others are not as well-known, but they’re definitely worth trying. If you’ve gotten bored with your classic order, this is a great list to get you started branching out.
Some of our concoctions are reminiscent of childhood snacks, while others replicate favorite candies or classic cocktails, without the alcohol, of course. We won’t deny that some of these smoothies might make great mixers if you were to take them home.
Do you have your own favorite concoction you’ve invented with your favorite Jamba Juice team? Give it a fun name that sounds just as good as it tastes, and we’ll consider including it in our next roundup.
Remember drinking the sugary sludge in the bottom of a bowl of Fruity Pebbles when you were a kid? The flavors here are eerily reminiscent. Ask for a full 12 ounces of soymilk, then a scoop each of raspberry, pineapple, lime, and orange sherbet.
Red Gummi Bear
Yes, this really tastes just like a gummi bear. Ask for one scoop each of lime, raspberry, pineapple, and orange sherbet, plus a scoop of strawberries, a scoop of ice, four ounces of soymilk, and six ounces raspberry juice.
