Summer is finally here – and with it come tropical vibes to your nearest Starbucks.
On June 21, the coffee chain released the Pineapple Passionfruit and Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers.
Your tastebuds will feel like they’re on a vacation with the Pineapple Passionfruit Refresher, inspired by “wistful flavors of a pineapple popsicle and passionfruit shaved ice,” per the press release. Pineapple and passionfruit flavors are combined with real diced pineapple pieces for the perfect summer pick-me-up. The chain suggests ordering the beverage with lemonade for a more explosive flavor. A 16 fl oz Grande drink clocks in at only 100 calories.
Feeling a littel dreamy? The nondairy Paradise Drink Refresher combines coconut milk for a creamy take on the aforementioned Pineapple Passionfruit Starbucks Refresher. A Grande drink is 140 calories.
“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 a little moment of escape wherever you are,” said Raegan Powell, a senior product developer.

But wait – there’s more!
The chain wants to be your happy place this summer, so in addition to the colorful refreshers, you can indulge in a new breakfast sandwich and a new cake pop flavor.
You won’t have to venture very far to get a sweet and savory item to kickstart your day! The Chicken, Maple Butter and Egg Sandwich features “chicken, fluffy eggs and a maple butter spread on a toasted oat biscuit roll.”
Meanwhile, the Cookies & Cream Cake Pop “combines chocolate cake with creamy sandwich cookie buttercream and cookie bits, dipped in white chocolate coating, and finished with dark chocolate cookie crumb.” It’s the perfect addition to the previously announced Chocolate Cream Cold Brew that is a chocolate-lovers dream!
