Jamba Juice is taking aim at McDonald's debut of Real Fruit Smoothies. Jamba announced it will accept coupons for the burger chain's new smoothies.

Participating Jamba Juice locations will honor any $1 off coupon on smoothies and will even accept free smoothie coupons issued by McDonald's.

This comes as McDonalds announced this week that sales had beaten Wall Street's expectations. A heat wave around the country helped sales of Real Fruit Smoothies and Frappes from its McCafe line of drinks.
