Consumers in every U.S. state but Hawaii are invited to stop by a Jamba Juice store from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Aug. 6 for a free sample of recently launched juice blends.
According to a statement, the sampling event is intended to drive consumer awareness of the new juice choices that are blended with kale, beets, carrots, ginger, orange, apple, pineapple, chia seeds, and wheatgrass.
A disclaimer toward the bottom of the publicly traded company's promotional announcement says the offer is "specifically not valid at Hawaii, Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Disney, Las Vegas Strip, Airport or select University Jamba Juice locations," but does not provide a reason.
A corporate representative did not reply to a query, however, a local spokeswoman for Jamba Hawaii explained that the new juice blends have not yet been introduced in the Hawaii market. Jamba Hawaii "intends to start selling it within the next 12 months, and will invite consumers to come in for free samples at that time," she said.
Isle Jamba Juice locations also offer Papaya Smoothies, which are a Hawaii market exclusive, she said.
