I have tried other local smoothie vendors and feel not one of them comes even close to the taste of Planet smoothie! I got addicted to these in college and can't say i've ever fully recovered. They have a great selection of flavors and sizes to choose from. You also can get 'blasts' added which don't affect the flavor but may add health benefits. They're certainly not Atkins' friendly but I don't' care. I think these things are the best!
