Have you ever thought to yourself, “Hey! I REALLY like those Starbucks Refreshers, so much so that I wish they came in a snortable form.”

If so, your wish will soon come true because next month Starbucks will offer a VIA Ready Brew version of their Refreshers.

(Note: Please don’t snort the VIA Refreshers)

Some of you might be thinking, “Hey! Those Starbucks Refreshers thingies sound familiar.” They should because earlier this year Starbucks introduced a line of ready-to-drink canned Refreshers, which you’ve probably passed by at your local grocery store. Here’s a Google search query for canned Starbucks Refreshers reviews.

According to the blog, Starbucks Melody, Starbucks VIA Refreshers will be hitting stores on July 10 and come in two flavors: Very Berry Hibiscus and Cool Lime. Making one is as easy as making a regular VIA coffee–just add water and stir. A Starbucks VIA Refreshers package will contain five mix packets, each of which will make a 16-ounce serving.

    The Refresher VIA is pretty horrible. They taste like watered down koolaid.

    And the refreshers are actually based on a drink made in store at starbucks, but last year hibiscus and lime were only regional drinks.

  2. Joi says:

    I bought packages of both the Lime and Hibiscus this morning. The Lime is horrible. Think – Liquid Manufactured Mint/Lime. The Hibiscus was better, but not good enough to finish off the box. Biggest problem – you CANNOT get the mix to completely mix in the water.

    I’m liking the berry hibiscus A LOT. I’m disappointed in the amount of caffeine in them though – only 65-80mg!

  5. Sally says:

    They have a berry hibiscus tea in bags at Fresh and Easy. It is so amazing
    Easier to make and easy on the pocket book. And you get so many!
