Refreshers fruit-flavored energy drinks by Starbucks
Starbucks continues an aggressive expansion into new markets with the announcement of its latest venture—Refreshers fruit-flavored energy drinks.
Despite being carbonated and fruit-flavored, the drinks are stil made with coffee—more specifically, a virtually flavorless extract of green, unroasted coffee. They also contain less caffeine than energy drinks made from roasted beans.
Refreshers will be available initially in Raspberry Pomegranate, Orange Melon and Strawberry Lemonade flavors. The drinks should be rolling out to 160,000 locations by the end of April. If you want to give it a shot, a $1-off coupon is currently available on the Starbucks website.
