Starbucks: Introduction of Starbucks Refreshers

Diana Chan October 25, 2012 Cafe, Fast Food, Hong Kong

Earlier this Summer, Starbucks launched their new drinks – “Starbucks Refreshers”. These are cold fruity drinks with “natural energy”. They use green coffee extract, so you get that boost of energy without drinking coffee.

The refreshers come in 2 flavours – Very Berry Hibiscus and Cool Lime.

There was a buy one get one free deal, so I couldn’t give up the chance at trying both and paying way less. I paid in Hong Kong dollars, so it translates to about $3.

Cool Lime is a mix of juice, mint, lime, caffeine, and then shaken with ice. It had a dominant flavour of mint and a secondary taste of the lime. I preferred this over the very berry hibiscus refresher.

Very Berry Hibiscus has not my favorite, but my sister prefered it over the Cool Lime refresher. The berries were not very fresh either.

It’s good that Starbucks is catering to the people who hate the coffee taste, but need the caffeine rush. I personally dislike the taste of both these drinks, but the Cool Lime is slightly better than the Very Berry Hibiscus.

Have you tried these yet?
