Starbucks Launches Energy Drinks
Starbucks is officially in the energy drink business, launching their new line of barista prepared “Refreshers.”
Coming in two flavors, Very Berry Hibiscus and Cool Lime, the drinks are made from green coffee extract and real fruit juice. The green coffee extract is made from unroasted arabica beans. Starbucks says the result is a “delicious, low calorie refreshment with a boost of natural energy from caffeine – tasting nothing like traditional brewed coffee.”
Also launching today ready-to-drink Refreshers coming in lightly sparkling Raspberry Pomegranate, Strawberry Lemonade and Orange Melon flavors as well as VIA Refreshers available in Very Berry Hibiscus and Cool Lime flavors.
On Friday from 12-3 p.m. local time customers can visit participating U.S. and Canada stores and enjoy a free Tall Refreshers beverage while supplies last.
