$1 Oatmeal at Jamba Juice

So I took advantage of Jamba Juice’s $1 Oatmeal Wednesdays today to start my day.

I went with a fresh banana and brown sugar crumble topping – simple and healthy. For just $1, the portion size was satisfying. The oatmeal itself was warm and softly cooked but not much taste.

The bananas were freshly sliced in small rounds and together with the brown sugar topping were pretty much the only flavor in the whole serving, but what else do you expect from fresh oatmeal?

I don’t know if it was worth having the brown sugar crumble because there were hardened pieces throughout and I worried some would crack my teeth. They were just too hard.

It would be nice to have more berry flavor options also because I don’t care too much for blueberries, dried cranberries or cherries.

Healthy, tasty breakfast for just $1

Today, Jamba Juice has announced its own solution to many people’s new year resolutions to eat healthy and save money - oatmeal for just $1 every Wednesday, all month long!  

The smoothie company offers their oatmeal, made with 100% organic, steel cut-oats, with a choice of 3 real fruit toppings - fresh banana, blueberry/blackberry and cinnamon apple – and now for a limited time the Berry Cherry Pecan, a mix of premium dried fruit, glazed pecans and a brown sugar crumble.

No microwaves here, the made-fresh-daily oatmeal takes a full 40 minutes to prepare, but ready to serve when ordered. 

The oatmeal offerings contain no artificial preservatives, no artificial flavors, zero grams trans fat and are a great source of protein and fiber. And on for only three more Wednesdays this month – you can get all that healthy, tasty goodness for just a buck – $1, regularly priced $2.95.

Good for you and your wallet.

I know what I’m having for breakfast tomorrow. Check back here Wednesday afternoon for the verdict.
