Just in time for weather hitting record low temperatures (at least in New York City), Jamba Juice announced their national rollout of their new Steel Cut Oatmeal with Fruit menu items this morning. Taking a full 40 minutes to prepare (but available to customers immediately), Jamba's oatmeal comes with a choice of three real fruit toppings: blueberry-blackberry, apple cinnamon or fresh bananas.
Adding to their already nutritious and wholesome menu, these small pints of oatmeal are sure to give Starbucks a run for their money with their rivaling whole-grain oatmeal with dried fruit. Getting a hold of a sample ourselves, I can honestly say I was impressed. The oats were plump and could instantly tell the difference between instant oatmeal made with boiling water and these oats, which are simmered over a period of time. The fruit topping was not too sweet and the brown sugar crumble simply put on smile on my face (who doesn't love crumble).
