( – Seattle Center
How I heard of this place: I believe my dad first introduced me to Orange Julius, years ago, when we stopped at a shopping center somewhere in middle America. In my first year of college, having obtained my one and only retail job (for a whole three months!), I would use my break time to enjoy a kids size orange julius and a walk around the mall.
Type of cuisine: Since the early days, the chain has added things like hot dogs, nachos and pitas to the menu, in addition to fruit smoothies. I remember it as a sweet juice joint…but it seems now you can also satiate your hunger.
Ambiance: About as casual as they come. Every time I have seen an Orange Julius it has been in a shopping center or other food court, giving shoppers and families the opportunity to eat what they want, when they want, and how they want.
What I ordered: Three of us were interested in a sweet and fruity beverage to quench our thirst on a warm day at the Seattle Center. We had two Entertainment book coupons: one for two orange julius’ for the price of one, and another for two smoothies for the price of one. I opted for the traditional orange julius. In our trio we also had a 3-berry blast and a mango passion smoothie.
What I loved: I loved the memories associated with the flavor of the orange julius, which has not changed since I can remember. The sip I sampled of the mango-passion smoothie was a delicious and thick blend of mango with a hint of passion fruit flavor.
Why I loved it: It gave us the opportunity to enjoy a cold and refreshing beverage while people watching near the fountain at the Seattle Center!
Cost: Average to high ($5 per 16oz. smoothie)
