Sometimes people need an answer right away (proposing marriage would probably be one of those times). That's why we have this. If your question is not here please email us so we can get back to you. If you want your question to be put here, annoy us by asking us the same question over and over again and it'll be a frequently asked question (then we can put it here).
Q: Are you're smoothies really made without added sugars, syrups, binders, emulsifiers, stablizers, and whatever else you say you don't put?
A: Yes! Most definitely. For one thing we pride ourselves in being able to make healthy, delicious, natural smoothies. Second thing, we don't like lying (our mamas would smack us if we did). If you notice our smoothies all have their own unique taste and texture. Unlike the other guys (boo), everything pretty much taste the same. Not here kiddo. Not at Mondo.
Q: What is IQF?
A: IQF means Individually quick frozen. We choose this kind of fruit because it is the best way to seal in all the nutrients (and flavor) of the fruit. There are some other advantages to using IQF. First the fruit is tree ripened, unlike "fresh" fruits. It is also not sprayed with nasty chemicals (yuck) so that they will ripen at supermarkets. If you would like to know more about IQF please read our pamphlet "Raw Materials" located at our stores.
Q: Why are your smoothies sour?
A: Our smoothies are not sour, they are tarty. Tart is used only to describe the sweet-sour combination of fruits. The reason why our smoothies taste tart (it depends on the smoothie) is because we do not add syrups or sugars, etc. Other places don't taste tart because they add nasty stuff.
Q: Why do your berry smoothies have bits in them?
A: The reason why some of our berry smoothies have bits (it depends on the smoothie but usually the ones with blackberry has the most) is because of the way the berry is. We do not remove the skin of the berries because it is the most nutritious (ie healthy) part of the fruit. So the bits are good, and you should eat them.
Q: Are you guys a local franchise?
A: Yup born and raised in the Philippines. But our smoothies are American in style and taste.
Q: Can I create my own smoothie?
A: We allow certain alterations in your smoothies. But we do not allow the adding or the removing of fruit, the combining of two smoothies together. You are simply allowed to add +benefits, ginger, or change juices. We have worked long and hard to create our smoothies. It is best that you keep our smoothies as is.
Q: I have an idea for a smoothie, can I share it with you so you'll make it?
A: Yes! You can most certainly share with us what you're looking for in a smoothie. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org please type EUREKA! in the subject heading (or if you wanna just say hey, you can email us too)
Q: I am a diabetic, can I drink your smoothies?
A: For the most part yes. Though that totally depends on your condition. Even though we do not add sugars or syrups there are still sugars found naturally in the fruits that we use. So pay attention to the ingreidents of the smoothies you're drinking and follow your doctors instructions. For example if he tells you to limit your mango intake, probably wouldn't be smart to drink 2 mondo sized Mango Magics.
In any case we do have more diabetic friendly drinks. Raspberry Rush (tell the staff all apple), and Classico (all apple, they'll know what it means).
Q: Why do you not have a kiwi smoothie?
A: We are working on and have been working on a kiwi smoothie (for years now). However because when you blend a kiwi it becomes really itchy in your throat we cannot and will not release one. We're afraid until we find a way to remove the itchiness of the kiwi (there's absolutely no way around it yet) there will be no kiwi smoothie from Mondo Juice (we have standards after all).
Q: Why don't you have an avocado smoothie?
A: We do not have an avocado smoothie because the avocado once opened starts to grow bitter as it is exposed to air. We wouldn't be happy selling a bitter smoothie (would you be happy drinking it?) because we do not add syrups in our drinks. There is no way to hide the avocado's bitterness (you can just imagine how little avocado the other guys must use or how much "nasty stuff" they use).
Q: Do you guys do parties, or meetings and stuff?
A: We do. Please check out our catering page, as well as email us for details. email@example.com.
Q: Can I work with you guys?
A: Any job inquiries please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
