Jamba Juice secret menu drinks


Jamba Juice, a popular local smoothie company, offers a variety of drink flavors ranging from Banana Berry to Peach Pleasure. However, as many people might not know, Jamba Juice also has a secret menu, which contains drinks that are no longer on the official menu but can still be ordered. Each Jamba Juice location offers different secret menu items, so make sure to ask which drinks are available.

Harker Aquila reviewed three secret menu smoothies: Pink Star, Strawberry Shortcake, and Sour Patch Kids.

Pink Star: 5/5 stars


The Pink Star smoothie, designed to taste like a pink Starburst, is the most popular Secret Menu item—and for a good reason. The beverage is comprised of a delightful combination of strawberry, raspberry, and lemon flavors, resulting in an optimal amount of sweetness. The evenly blended finish of the drink adds to the  perfect consistency of the thick and milky smoothie. If you could only pick one secret menu item, we highly recommend the Pink Star drink!

Strawberry Shortcake: 1/5 stars


A striking misnomer, the Strawberry Shortcake smoothie strays far from expectations of a creamy strawberry beverage. Instead, the drink can be compared to a can of Dole pineapple juice, due to its liquid consistency and strong pineapple taste. The smoothie is overpowered by a bland combination of pineapple, banana, and apple, containing not a trace of strawberry flavor. So, if you think you’ll enjoy a watery, flavorless, and unpalatable beverage, be sure to try the Strawberry Shortcake concoction!

Sour Patch Kids: 4/5 stars


Unsurprisingly, Sour Patch Kids exactly resembles the flavor of Sour Patch Kids candy. At first, the drink can be overwhelmingly sour for some, but the sweet aftertaste provides for a good balance. The smoothie is a refreshing and energizing drink, perfect for a warm, spring day. As for the drink’s consistency, the top layer becomes watery within a few minutes, leaving the center frozen. If you enjoy the savory taste of Sour Patch Kids with hints of raspberries and lemon, this may be the drink for you!
