Have you heard of Juice Bang Bang?
It is a Bubble Tea house, so what exactly is bubble tea? Wikipedia defines bubble tea as follows:
Bubble tea is a sweetly flavored tea beverage invented in Taiwan. Drink recipes may vary, but most bubble teas contain a tea base mixed with fruit (or fruit syrup) and/or milk. Ice blended versions of the drink are also available, usually in fruit flavors. Bubble teas also usually contain small sago balls or pearls called “boba”. Pearls made of jelly are also available in many places. These teas are shaken to mix the ingredients, creating a foam on the top of some varieties. This drink is called bubble tea because of the marble-sized sago balls or “pearls” that are present and sit at the bottom of the cup. These chewy balls, although having little flavor, are sucked up through large wide straws and are consumed along with the drink. Sometimes the customer will be asked if he or she wants “boba” or “bubble” added in the drink. Both these terms refer to the sago balls
when I first heard of a bubble tea house I thought it’s actually flavored iced tea and I was very excited to try it because I just love flavored tea and iced tea, perfect in this hot weather and it doesn’t make you bloated or heavy like other cold drinks, so I went to Juice Bang Bang in the new Avenue mall in Swefieh to try it out, the place itself is so nice and the staff (who are actually the owners) are two very sweet guys, they have all these different flavors of bubble tea, and they’d recommend a flavor to you, and they’d customize your drink however you want it, they’re so sweet and easy going.. I tried the raspberry yogurt and it was so yummy, but it tasted more like milkshake or yogurt shake when I really was hoping for tea, anyway it’s so cool to watch them make it and prepare it, it tastes so good and it’s a very pleasant experience. I seriously hated the bubbles in the bottom, they ruin the whole “drink” experience and for me these jelly tasteless things aren’t edible, so next time I’ll certainly ask them not to add any bubbles to my drink.
Juice Bang Bang is so fresh and cool branded, but the venue is horrible I hated Avenue mall, the parking is horrible, the food court is horrible, I didn’t like anything about Avenue mall, but I would definitely go to Juice Bang Bang again because they have this uniqueness factor that makes you go there again and again, it’s no regular milkshake place, it is different than anything else in Amman so even if the venue is horrible, the value you’re served is just worth it – specially with this 2 for 1 offer 🙂 – I think they might need to adjust their prices a bit I think it’s a little expensive without the offer.
I’m a bit disappointed with this sudden change of logos, they’ve been up and running for a few months and they’re already changing their logo, I couldn’t find a clearer version of the older logo, but you can see how the older logo looks like a tornado, it’s just hideous..
the new logo is much better, but still I’m not so impressed with the name Juice Bang Bang, it’s too long and difficult to remember, they could have come up with a much better name.
Juice Bang Bang are paying great attention to being available online, they have an under construction web page that has the phone number, location and working hours, twitter feed and the facebook social context plugin, but this page is very search engine unfriendly! The page title had been “Page Title” for the longest time, recently they changed it to “juicebangbang”, the whole thing is one flat image, no text whatsoever, so searching for juice bang bang on google wouldn’t list this page, the twitter feed and the facebook plugin are good ideas, they increase trust in the brand and put the user in a great social context, which most likely results in this user becoming a facebook fan and a twitter follower.
