Ok, I love the taste of smoothies, but as they have become increasingly popular, companies are just raising prices and giving customers back a little less than before. I remember a long time ago when they used to actually put fruit in it. What happened? Sure they taste great, but now the only fruit they might put into it is a very small banana! One of the smoothie places at my uni puts fruit syrup into the cup (may as well put fruit jelly/jam in it), then low fat frozen yoghurt, honey or some syrupy sugar stuff, lots and lots of ice, and then maybe a small banana and/or milk if the drink you order requires it. Some places are better. I see them put around 10 pieces of frozen raspberry or blueberries into some of their berry smoothies. However, that's almost nothing. It's essentially for show. The stuff tastes good, but does anybody else feel that the product is getting worse? Is this what happens when everybody and their grandma is starting a "fresh smoothie" shop? PS: Banana + muesli smoothies give me tiny tummy orgasms. They're $5.50 Aussie dollars, though.
