Get Your Jamba Juices Flowing at Siam Paragon

Patricia Tanchanok Good and Naphat Siangsomboon give a celebrity boost to Jamba Juice’s Thursday opening at Siam Paragon.

BANGKOK — Another American chain that boomed in the ‘90s has found new life in Bangkok with the arrival of Texas-based smoothie chain Jamba Juice.

There’s no need to fly to Los Angeles for a Mango A-Go-Go smoothie anymore, since you can get your fix at the kingdom’s first Jamba Juice, which opened Thursday on the ground floor of the Siam Paragon shopping mall.

The smoothies, however, cost a head-spinning 110 baht to 180 baht – a steep step up from those found in the street for about 40 baht. At Jamba Juice, customers pair their fruit selections with “boosts” such as vitamins to protein.

Jamba Juice is a Texas-based smoothie chain with stores in the United States, Mexico, South Korea, Bahamas, Canada, the Philippines and Taiwan. It was founded in 1990 in San Luis Obispo, California.
