Smoothie King is an international brand that has been around for 43 years.  Its mission is “Smoothies with a Purpose.”  According to www.smoothieking.com, founder Steve Kuhnae wanted to battle food allergies and other health conditions.  In this quest he combined nutrients and proteins with natural fruits and vegetables to create custom blends.  He improved his health so dramatically that he believed in good nutrition.

I was invited to meet up with several other bloggers to sample eight of their best sellers.  These were the fruity and tasty flavors:

There wasn’t one that I can say that I didn’t like.  It was difficult, however, to come up with a favorite.  I think that my top three were: Angel Food, Hulk Vanilla and Lemon Twist Strawberry.

One thing that I love about a company is their involvement in the local community.  Molly, one of the owners, stated they are dedicated to this cause.  They’re seeking to get involved in partnering with local running events. They’ve been busy at the College World Series.  If you want to check them out when headed to a game, they have a spot near Mattress Factory.

If you’re a fan of saving money, like we are, Smoothie King has an app for that.  The app gives you all the nutritional information for the menu and updates you with store promotions.  You can also collect points toward your smoothie purchases.

Molly said they were glad they made the decision to build the location with a drive-thru.  It makes it easy to pick up your smoothie on the go.
