TORONTO, Feb. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Starbucks Coffee Company is giving
Canadians more ways to stay energized with the launch of ready-to-drink
Starbucks Refreshers™ sparkling green coffee energy beverages, a
lightly carbonated, caffeinated, canned version of the popular
handcrafted Starbucks Refreshers™ beverages introduced in Starbucks
stores in summer 2012.
"Starbucks Refreshers™ beverages reinvented how people enjoy coffee in
our stores," says Kevin Reid, Director, Beverage, Starbucks Coffee
Canada. "Today, in grocery, mass merchandisers, convenience and gas
stores across the country, Canadians can pick up a can and enjoy a new
delicious way to recharge with only 60 calories per can."
Green coffee extract is made from the raw bean found inside a 100%
unroasted arabica coffee cherry. When left unroasted, green coffee beans maintain
naturally occurring caffeine. Combined with real fruit juice,
ready-to-drink Starbucks Refreshers™ beverages contain 60 calories per
serving and come in three new flavours including Raspberry Pomegranate,
Strawberry Lemonade and Orange Melon.
New Ready-to-drink Starbucks Refreshers™ beverages are available for
$2.99 per 355mL can and can be found in most major grocery, mass
merchandisers, convenience and gas stores across Canada. Handcrafted
Starbucks Refreshers™ beverages in Very Berry Hibiscus and Cool Lime
flavours are available nationally at Starbucks stores.
