Missing Jamba Juice on State Street, Downtown SB?

Starbucks is launching Vivanno, a new line of smoothies on July 15th. (Although some stores have been jumping the gun...)
Signs in at least four coffee shops in Los Angeles and Chicago said the smoothies, called "Vivanno Nourishing Blends," will hit stores on July 15. Employees at stores in New York, Washington and San Francisco also confirmed the launch of new smoothies next week.

Starbucks would not comment on it.

A Washington, D.C. store gave out samples, saying the drink will have 250 calories.  - Reuters
Starbucks officials wouldn’t say anything more about the smoothies, but the in-store signs pretty much said it all, including that the drinks would come in orange-mango-banana and banana-chocolate flavors - Reuters blog

Although I try not to go to Starbucks instead I prefer to give my business to locally owned establishments, it's getting more and more difficult, The breakfast sandwich I had from a Stabucks in Monterey keeps calling my name.. now my other favorite breakfast food, a smoothie, what's a girl to do

Starbucks's smoothies are nasty and aren't made of real fruit!
Instead they are made of the juice extracts and are loaded with sugars and other chemical crap.

The best in the industry are Jamba Juice and don't let anybody fool you.
Jamba is the only smoothie maker who uses 100% real fruit with FREE boosts! (Protein, Vitamins , etc..)
