SAN DIEGO - April 19, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - With this week’s introduction of a Piña Colada Smoothie, Jack in the Box® restaurants is sending a deliciously tempting signal that summer is almost here. Even if Ma Nature tosses a few more snowballs or soaks a few May Day parades, Jack in the Box guests need only venture to or thru their nearest restaurant for a refreshing tropical break.
Available in 16- and 24-ounce sizes, the new Piña Colada Smoothie delivers the unbelievable flavor of tropical piña colada through a blend of Minute Maid® fruit juice and nonfat frozen yogurt. It joins the restaurant chain’s line of Real Fruit Smoothies that includes Mango, Strawberry and Strawberry Banana.
“Our new Piña Colada Smoothie is a great way to evoke all of the pleasures associated with this tropical drink, from relaxing in an exotic paradise to partying poolside with family and friends,” said Iwona Alter, Division Vice President of Menu Strategy at Jack in the Box. "Jack in the Box offers a lot of variety when it comes to beverages, and for guests looking for a refreshing drink that’s rich in flavor and lighter than one of our Real Ice Cream Shakes, Fruit Smoothies are a great choice.”
