The only negative reviews on this Planet Smoothie make no sense. The one guy saying there was a tinny taste doesn't even know what he ordered. Its likely he ordered something with kale or a dark leafy vegetable which can have a metallic taste, or...something really tart and tangy. My point is there are many tasty options. If you actually look at what you're ordering and the clearly listed ingredients, you'll have no trouble whatsoever. I had to correct that. As for the flavor in general, I go out of my way to get to this location because it tastes much better than Tropical Smoothie Cafe. It also tastes better or about the same depending on the smoothie as Smoothie King, but the prices are cheaper. Compared to smoothie places, this is the best. As for the costs, if you look at the cost of buying the ingredients yourself especially if it is something more expensive like Acai or fruit out of season, you can't really make it much cheaper yourself. I make some decent smoothies with frozen fruit, but they don't compare to here. Also, they are the same price or less than Tropical Smoothie and cheaper than Smoothie King. I think one mistake people make here and other smoothie places is that they order a medium because medium means regular sized most places. At smoothie places, a small is a lot because what you are drinking is dense and isn't flavored water. Planet Smoothie actually has 4 sizes. The small at 22oz for a bit less than $5 is reasonable. The price difference for the larger sizes also is way better than what Smoothie King charges, and Tropical Smoothie only has one adult drink size. My favorite is the PB&J Smoothie which weirdly tastes like a delicious PB&J somehow in smoothie form. I also like the Crazy Bee and Amazon Kick flavors. The Mountain Man Crunch is good if you're craving a peanut butter banana granola breakfast. The Chocolate Elvis is like a peanut butter chocolate dessert one. It may be a good idea to take a gander at their menu online before you get there so you can read all their ingredients first since there is a lot. I like the size of their menu compared to Smoothie King's monstrously huge confusing menu. It is big enough to give you a lot of options, but not overwhelming and filled with cryptic names like Activator at Smoothie King for example. The service here is great and I've seen the owner in there often. My only complaint would be that they are only open until 7:30PM Mon-Fri, but I can understand given the location and lack of after-work traffic from the surrounding offices at that time. It is still better than the deli places that close at 3PM. I believe they are open longer hours during the Summer which makes sense down the road from Wrightsville Beach and Mayfaire. It'd be nice if they updated their hours on the Planet Smoothie website.More

I love this place, its rather expensive for a good smoothie, but its worth it. They treat you right here and let you customize things to your liking. You can often get free samples or even free smoothies when they make the wrong ones. Service...here is top notch, food is good, i want a smoothie now.More

My family lives basically down the street from this Planet Smoothie, which is owned by a service member of the National Guard. As a Veteran, I would choose this establishment not just for that reason, but due to the customer service and yumminess! They have...endless options of smoothies, and if you don't find one on the board, they will be more than happy to create one for you to your liking. They also have muffins (usually also gluten free options), Starbucks and frozen yogurt. If you are on a quick in and out visit, they are way faster than any actual Starbucks I have ever been too. If you rather sit down and have your snack, they have cozy seating inside.More

I've been here many times when in the mood for something healthier than ice cream for desert. They have smoothies for all types of lifestyles (muscle builder, low carb, vegan, etc.)
