New Pineapple Passionfruit & Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers® beverages
Inspired by the wistful flavours of a pineapple popsicle or passionfruit shaved ice, the new Pineapple Passionfruit Starbucks Refreshers® beverage brings all the summer vibes with every sip. The beverage features tropical flavours of pineapple and passionfruit, hand shaken by Starbucks baristas with real diced pineapple pieces and ice to create a delicious island escape that’s 100 calories for a Grande (16 fl oz). Customers can also order the beverage with lemonade for an extra burst of flavour.
The new non-dairy Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers® beverage adds coconut beverage to the Pineapple Passionfruit Starbucks Refreshers beverage for a creamy, dreamy, tropical sip at 140 calories for a Grande (16 fl oz).
"The Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers beverage is like sunshine in a cup – the bright tropical flavors are radiant, happy, and joyful. It’s the perfect summer sip for little moment of escape wherever you are,” said Raegan Powell, a senior product developer from Starbucks R&D who led the creation of the new drink.”
The Pineapple Passionfruit and Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers beverages join the fan-favourite Starbucks Refreshers beverage menu, which also includes the Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refreshers beverage, Mango Dragonfruit Starbucks Refreshers beverage and nondairy choices including Strawberry Coconut Drink and Dragon Drink. Starbucks Refreshers beverages debuted globally in 2012 delivering thirst-quenching refreshment from natural flavours shaken with real diced fruit and green coffee extract.
Coffee lovers can also sip on the sweet, creamy flavour of summers past with the new Starbucks Chocolate Cream Cold Brew. Available year-round, the Chocolate Cream Cold Brew offers the perfect flavour combination of Starbucks® Cold Brew sweetened with vanilla syrup and topped with a silky chocolaty cream cold foam.
Delicious Summer Food
Before soaking up the summer rays, start your morning right with the Bacon, Sausage & Egg Wrap or Southwest Potato, Black Bean and Egg Wrap. Both wraps are made with cage-free scrambled eggs, delivering the perfect flavour to carry you through all your warm weather adventures.
For a sweet summer treat, the new Cookies and Cream Cake Pop combines chocolate cake with creamy sandwich cookie buttercream and cookie bits, dipped in white chocolatey coating, and finished with dark chocolate cookie crumb.
Starbucks Ice Cream Cone Sugar Cookie is also available all summer long. A rich, buttery ice cream-shaped sugar cookie topped with pink-chocolaty icing and colourful sprinkles makes for the perfect addition to your next Starbucks order.
Summer Essentials that Help Reduce Waste
Starbucks is releasing a new selection of must-have drinkware – with cold cups, tumblers, water bottles and more, find your summer essentials at Starbucks. Plus - customers who bring a clean, personal reusable cup into participating cafés will receive 10 cents off their beverage!
Starbucks is committed to shifting away from single-use packaging and reducing waste in our stores to support our global aspiration of a resource-positive future. We eliminated all plastic straws in our stores and are introducing compostable, marine-biodegradable birch wood cutlery this summer. Together, this helps save over 80 million plastic straws, forks, knives, and spoons annually from landfill in Canada.
