Starbucks Launches Refreshers! Try it for free July 13th from 12-3pm (+ Tweet to win a $25 giftcard)

This giveaway has now ended

Last night I went to a summer soiree hosted by Starbucks in celebration of the national launch of their NEW Refreshers beverage. This product is B-A-N-A-N-A-S! (Figuratively not literally.)  It actually come in two flavors, Very Berry Hibiscus (my preferred flavor) and Cool lime and despite tasting closer to refreshing flavored lemonade type beverage, it’s actually coffee. Naturally caffeinated from green coffee extract (which offers about 1/4th of the amount of caffeine as regular coffee), Starbucks Refreshers combines real fruit juice to make this the perfect afternoon-pick-me-up. They have 100 calories and contains 50% of your daily value of Vitamin C. Prices start at $2.90 for a Tall size (12 fl oz.).

TRY IT FOR FREE! Starbucks is hosting an in-store promotion on Friday, July 13, where customers can stop by any Starbucks location and enjoy a complimentary tall Refreshers beverage from 12-3 p.m.

GET SOCIAL! Starbucks want’s to hear from you. If you’re on twitter, tweet them @Starbucks using the hashtag #StarbucksRefreshers and let them know what you think! Additionally,  Starbucks launched VIA Refreshers! At less than 40 calories (and still packed with Vitamin C), VIA bringing the instant coffee experience of Starbucks Refreshers to your home. Perfect for on the go, Starbucks VIA Refreshers come in the same flavors, Very Berry Hibiscus and Cool Lime and are available in a five-pack for $5.95.

And how did I get so lucky to host this little giveaway? Pure ping pong talent (I knew my skills would come in handy one day!). Minus my terrible table tennis form, and far from sporty attire, I had to win a game for the opportunity to host a giveaway. I knew my SPiN membership would come in handy for something!
