Berry Bitten by Jamba Juice

Best Blogger Tips
I just turned into a berry vampire after I tried Berry Bitten by Jamba Juice It is good to try something new besides milk tea, frozen yogurt, or coffee blended drinks. I recently visited their kiosk at SM Mall of Asia. The store's location is near the ice skating rink.

Honestly, my motivation for going there is the Twilight Breaking Dawn promotion they have. They are currently serving this Twilight-inspired limited edition drink named Berry Bitten. Plus, the drink comes with a snap bracelet freebie with vampire coven prints on it. Other than that, a 'cup warmer' with Breaking Dawn print comes with it, too. What saddens me most is that they didn't put the drink in a transparent cup. :(

The smallest size of 16 ounces cost PhP155. The price is worth it as the smoothie is above standard compared to the local brands. Of course, I couldn't resist Breaking Dawn merchandise, as well.

My drink with the freebies.

I was very impressed by the Berry Bitten smoothie. It was so fruity that I was instantly convinced that the drink is healthy! I could taste blueberry, strawberry, and the most dominant flavor is mixed berries. If you are familiar with the Mixed Berries gelato, that is exactly how it tasted like. There were berry 'seeds' (those violet floating thingy) and half blueberries floating all over the drink, too. This smoothie does not have the 'sugary' flavor as compared to local ones. It's sweetness naturally comes from the berries, with a little bit of sourness contributed by the yogurt. 

I immediately asked the barista the ingredients of this yummy concoction. According to the best of my memory, she said Mixed Berries Syrup, Apple-Strawberry Juice, Blueberries, Raspberry Sherbet, and Frozen Yogurt. Hmmm... that is all I can remember, maybe missing an ingredient or two. 

A closer look at Berry Bitten.
What impressed me most is the glassy look of the smoothie. The thick texture is a combination of soft liquid and hard berry 'seeds'. Unlike leading local smoothies, this one is not watery. Through to the end of the drink, the components did not separate at all. Thus, it gives you a consistent flavor from the first sip to the last. 

Very thick and 'glassy'.
The drink was very good! I just had to know more about Jamba Juice and their philosophy:

Why Jamba Juice?
Jamba Juice has my two thumbs up! I will surely be back to try more variants! My love for it now goes beyond Twilight! Get your cup of Berry Bitten before it's gone! If you like yogurt with blueberries, you will definitely love this one, too!
