Robeks fresh juices and smoothies franchise recently rolled out three new menu items in August that feature the compelling flavors of fresh melon and mint. The company’s 10 Connecticut restaurants are offering two raw smoothies and many markets locally-grown fruits and produce will be used.
Connecticut Robeks locations can be found in West Hartford, Fairfield, Westport, Norwalk, Darien, Stamford, and Cos Cob.
When we visited Robeks in West Hartford we were immediately impressed. We had never been to any Robeks before this visit. It is a small place but it was bustling with visitors and everyone was happy to be drinking one of their smoothies. I tried the Cantaloupe Smoothie (see seen below). It was love at first sip. I can’t wait to go back and try their Coffee smoothies and Cucumber and Spinach smoothies. They offer quite a large variety for every taste bud.
“With these refreshing summer menu choices, we are keeping in step with our motto at Robeks ‘Healthy never tasted this goodTM,'” said Katrina Bickford, Robeks Regional Director CT and SE NY. “We’re bringing customers as close to the farm and garden as possible with fresh ingredients at their absolute peak.”
The three limited-time-only offerings, which will be available until September 28, are:
Cantaloupe Cooler: which features fresh cantaloupe and fresh mint with pineapple chunks, 100% natural orange and pineapple sherbet, and a splash of apple juice and Wailea Watermelon, which is made with fresh watermelon and fresh mint, ripe strawberries, pineapple chunks, 100% natural raspberry and pineapple sherbet, and a splash of apple juice.
Mojito Melon: Robeks’ newest fresh juice creation, is made with three raw fruits — seedless watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumber and chopped fresh mint leaves.
The Wailea Watermelon: smoothie was a runaway hit with Robeks customers during a multi-store sampling of the product last year, becoming the most popular and most talked about smoothie at Robeks’ test locations.
“The flavor profiles of these products are exceptional,” Bickford said. “Plus, eating seasonally appropriate fruits and vegetables can also maximize nutritional intake and support local economies. When it comes right down to it, fresh melon is one of summer’s simple joys, and we’ve come up with three creative ways to maximize its sweet, juicy taste.”
