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