There is a new player on the Bay Ridge Brooklyn healthy restaurant scene, Cocoa Grinder. (I was not aware of the old location on 4th avenue location prior to the opening of the new location on 3rd avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn ) The new location on 8511 3rd ave (Brooklyn) is decorated very nicely with a clean modern look. I love the hammer for a door handle. ( Plays with your head the first few times that you see it) Do you know what attracts me to Cocoa Grinders ? Iron Extreme apple, carrot, broccoli, kale, beet & spinach. That shit is my DRINK! Normally I would have to make a custom order for that drink and the server’s ALWAYS FUCKS IT UP. But not at the Cocoa Grinder which makes me one happy fat guy.
The staff really does cares about the products they are serving, even washes down the machine after ever USE. You would think that washing the juicer is a normal thing in all juice bars right? WRONG, ever had a taste orange when you didn’t order orange? YUP the bitchs didn’t wash the machine after the last customer.
In my opinion Cocoa Grinder is better then all the other juice bars that I have tried in the neighborhood.
NOW MY RANT. This has nothing to with Cocoa Grinder just some of the customers that were there today. But it happens in every juice bar I have ever visited. STOP Fucking ordering smoothies and saying that they are fucking healthy. GET A Fucking Complete fresh squeezed JUICE. What do I mean by complete? A juice that has a wide a ray of vitamins and minerals. You DO need those to stay healthy. Not just the big 4. I had to listen to these chicks talk about how healthy smoothies are, that they blah blah blah this and that. No. Please. Stop your stupidity. Just get a juice. Juices taste just as good if not better as smoothies. They also do not contain any milk or processed ingredients and normally are less sugar. Its not only yogurt Dumb ass. Its LOW FAT yogurt (in most places) how do you think they make it low fat? There is NO such thing as a LOW FAT COWs.
Lets do this another way. Compare a strawberry banana smoothie to a Iron Extreme. These are all estimated number that you can get from the web if you doubt me each has been linked in the title. The nutritional information below does not represent the national information for Cocoa Grinder.

See the Difference?YES? Good now order a fucking juice.
No? Let me explain it to you in simpler terms. Most fresh squeezed juices have more good stuff in them then smoothies.
That Good stuff makes your body healthier and stronger so the odds of you getting SICK decease.
If you want a whole breakdown of how all this works go back to high school health class and open your fucking ears.
