Do you miss Buzzy Cohen?

This is one of those clues that a number of people on the Internet like to get all uppity about.

To that, I say this:

In the book “Jamba Juice Power”, by Stan Dembecki and company founder Kirk Perron, one section reads:

In case you forgot, Jamba is derived from a West African word that translates as “Celebrate!”

Additionally, their own Facebook page, in a post from March 21, 2014, reads:

“Jamba” means to celebrate in Swahili. What achievements will you “Jamba” this weekend?

While there are a number of other sources who make alternative claims, the clue in of itself as written is just fine, in that: 1) Jamba Juice is an alliterative beverage chain; 2) it says it gets its name from an African word meaning “to celebrate”.
