I finally fulfilled a promise I made. After several failed attempts, for various reasons, I made my way to the Downtown Sarasota location of Crop Juice on Main Street. I was looking forward to trying some of the many different drinks and juices they have to offer.
Upon entering the store, I was welcomed by Jasmine and Megan who were working at the time. They were both very friendly, helpful and informative in telling me about all they have to offer and how each drink is made with fresh ingredients at their Gulf Gate location. After looking at the menu, which had many interesting choices, I decided to ordering a Pulp Friction Smoothie to take with me. While I was waiting for my smoothie to be made fresh, I was told that they offer several different kinds of juice drinks for sampling. I asked not to be told what they were and was going to see if I could identify the ingredients by taste alone. I tried about 4 or 5 of them and I was successful in guessing a few of the drinks but was surprised by how refreshing and blended the drink flavors were. Each one of the samples were tasty and full of zests.
The smoothie I ordered was ready to go and I took a sip before leaving. It was by far the best smoothie I had ever had. It was fresh and smooth and ice cold. You could actually tell from tasting it that it was made to order and contained fresh ingredients.
I told Jasmine and Megan “thank you” and how much I appreciated there spending time with me to explain what makes Crop Juice so special. It was a very enjoyable experience and I am looking forward to making it back again and trying more of their juices. I also found out they offer coffee drinks so I will try them as an early morning pick me up. Hope to see you there…
