Planet Smoothie, which serves fresh fruit smoothies with low calorie, low sugar and high protein options, has launched its Flavors of the Tropics campaign. The campaign promotes the Sambazon® products including the limited time only Açaí smoothies and bowls. Açaí (ah-sigh-ee), a fruit packed with antioxidants, healthy omegas and delicious powers, is found atop 50-foot palm trees in the Amazon.
From March 19 through April 15, the Açaí Gold Smoothie, featuring Sambazon Açaí blended with pineapple, mango and orange juice, will be offered along with the Crazy Carnival Bowl, made up of Sambazon Açaí blended thickly with mangos, raspberries and a splash of apple juice, then topped with sliced banana and granola. The Amazon Kick smoothie, featuring Sambazon Açaí blended with strawberries, blueberries and banana, will be available from April 16 to May 14. The Ipanema Beach Bowl, which is Sambazon Açaí blended thickly with banana and peanut butter and topped with sliced banana and granola, is also available from April 16 to May 14. From May 15 to June 10, customers will be able to get the Original Açaí Smoothie, which is Sambazon Açaí blended with the customer’s choice of fresh apples or apple juice, strawberries and banana. The bowl from May 15 to June 10 is the Rio Bowl, featuring Sambazon Açaí blended thickly with fresh apples and banana and topped with sliced banana and granola.
All Planet Smoothie locations are participating. Atlanta, Ga.-based Planet Smoothie offers customers a quick, portable snack or meal replacement with their fresh fruit smoothies. The menu is organized into lifestyle categories like protein, weight loss, energy, wellness and cool blended. Planet Smoothie has more than 100 units in operation, mainly in Georgia and Florida. The brand was acquired last year by Franklin, Tenn.-based Tasti D-Lite, the great-tasting, lower-calorie frozen dessert chain with a cult following among health-conscious consumers as well as celebrities. Now that Tasti D-Lite is the official franchisor of Planet Smoothie, the collaboration will offer dual brands, with Tasti products being added to selected Planet Smoothie stores, and Planet Smoothie’s offerings to join the menus at some Tasti D-Lite locations.
