The latest bull to enter the energy drink market is Starbucks with their latest product line called Starbucks Refreshers. The latest pick me up drinks are currently available in select retail and grocery stores in flavours of raspberry pomegranate, orange melon, and strawberry lemonade.
The company claims that their Starbucks Refreshers boast “breakthrough innovation that deliver thirst-quenching refreshment from real fruit juice and a boost of natural energy from a new source, green coffee extract”. Tapping into the $8 billion dollar market which grew at 16% over the last year, now you can too sleep less and conquer more!
This drink is made from green coffee extract from 100% Arabica beans and contains a “mild and fresh flavour while still retaining naturally occurring caffeine.”
Each Starbucks Refreshers is 60 calories per 12 fl. oz. can. Currently available in the US only.
I wonder how long before Canada adapts to this “fountain of youth”…
Aside from this Starbucks is also pushing beyond coffee and energy drinks, they are opening their first Evolution Fresh Inc. juice store (after purchasing the California based juice maker back in November for $30)! The first store debuts in Bellevue, Wash.
