Rethink How You Re-Energize

It was Friday afternoon and the work week was over, but I still had a handful of errands to run before meeting friends for dinner – and I was beat. I needed a pick-me-up, not something filling that would spoil my appetite for dinner.  So I decided to swing by my local drugstore to grab a Starbucks Refreshers™ beverage (I’m an Orange Melon girl) for a little boost.

Made with natural energy from Green Coffee Extract, Starbucks Refreshers™ beverage contain about a third of the caffeine from a freshly brewed cup of coffee and none of the roasted coffee flavor. I love having an energizing option that contains vitamins, ginseng and natural sweeteners. It also doesn’t hurt that with only 60 calories I’m not un-doing my time at the gym!

What’s your favorite way to re-energize in the afternoon?

    I buy my cool refreshers to have at home - individual packets from the box. My favorite is the Cool Lime!! It makes a very delicious drink that tantalizes the tastebuds and brings on that "pause that refreshes". I keep a box or two onhand at all times. How about sales on these more often?? I've never had a beverage from Starbucks that didn't tast yummy - keep up the good work all you fabulous Baristas!!!!

    The rewards should be given out per drink, not per transaction. Also, .60 for 1/2&1/2? Time for me to rethink.

    Why is Starbucks not accepting rewards that are on their app? My daughter had one for the Macchiato and they would not take it, they asked for an email with a bar code, there was not a barcode in her email, so no reward drink given. If it is a mistake by Starbucks app, they should still honor it.

    All I wanted was a decaf coffee - something I can get at any caribou, any time of day. Target Starbucks in Blaine didn't have any. Water was running (and still is) as I sit here drinking a watered down brew. Only after I tell them it's gross do they offer to brew me a real coffee. Why does it have to be so hard?

    Starbucks uses only the choice premium flavors to add to their coffee. I drink lattes while my wife prefers Americanos. Her favorite flavors are almond or amaretto. Why is it Starbucks never carry these? I have a Starbucks card, but my wife does not. If almond or amaretto became flavor(s) of choice, I believe she would become a card carrying Starbucks carrier as well.

    I wish SB's would provide the Grams of sugar content on their nutritional menu... I noticed it is missing from the chart they provide and since so many of their drinks are over loaded with sugar this is important for consumers to understand just how much sugar is contained in their drinks and food. Calories are a small portion of understanding healthy eating.

    As a newcomer to starbucks circle of coffee drinkers I feel also that each drink or food item purchased should be awarded a star each.It makes sense that one would be abe to get the same result by ordering and paying for - say- four items on four different visits to the cashier.If paid for all four at one time would get only one star awarded!!
    Something worth considerating.

    As a Seattle resident, we were the first market to get La Boulange pastries. Recently had an opportunity to visit several Starbucks stores in Philadelphia, surprised to find all the great baked goods replaced by La Boulange in our market. Now I can report that La Boulange was a business mistake and should be addressed immediately. La Boulange does, in fact, taste like cardboard - 10% smaller, no moisture, no sweet taste, no spongy texture we've been taught to expect.

    Please bring back the lemon pound cake. The new desserts just don't taste as good and are not appealing to the eye.
