SIN: Boost Juice Bars

Watermelon lychee crush to beat the hot weather!

Hailing from Australia, Boost Juice Bars has come a long way from its humble origin to more than 300 outlets worldwide. It provides not only the usual selection of juice, but also other beverages that are guaranteed to be made of fresh ingredients daily. The Australian website boasts the use of "7 million bananas, 6 million oranges, 3 million apples, 3 million carrots, 100,000 celery bunches, 600,000 pineapples, 900 tonnes of watermelon, 20 million strawberries, 1 million whole mangoes, 9 million raspberries, 30 million blueberries, and 2 million passion fruits" every year.

Watermelon Lychee Crush (Medium) S$4.90
Taste: 8/10

The first one that I tried was the drink that left a frosty sensation, even thought it was short-lived, on the mouth after each sip. The aroma of lychee complemented the sweetness imparted by the freshly juiced watermelons.

Banana Buzz (Medium) S$5.50
Taste: 8/10

As a big fan of bananas, I naturally went ahead with the filling, yellow tropical fruit from the list of low-fat smoothies. I'd like it to be a bit thicker, but the carbohydrate-packed fruit went nicely with low-fat vanilla yogurt and a little bit of honey.

Immunity Juice (Medium) S$5.90
Taste: 7.5/10

On a separate occasion, I also tried another watermelon-based juice, but combined with the goodness of oranges and strawberries. While it was refreshing, I found that it could have more strawberries.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 8/10
Ambience: 6/10
Overall: 7/10

One thing for sure was that I didn't experience brain freeze with all the three beverages. The outlet at Bugis Junction has a few tables and chairs for patrons to sit down. Pika's advice: Highly active individuals may want to add boosters into their beverages, such as ginseng for that extra energy!
