Starbucks Did It To Me Again!

I don't understand how Starbucks can consistently come up with products that are so dang expensive, and yet I am more than willing to continue paying for them.  I suppose it's really not that big of a mystery.  They are delicious!  These Refreshers from Starbucks are my new afternoon guilty pleasure.  Created to compete in the energy drink market, these little guys claim to give a natural energy boost from green coffee extract and ginseng, but don't have any coffee flavor.  They are lightly carbonated and fruity.

I'm not an energy drink consumer, but I don't feel jittery after drinking a Refresher.  I'm not sure I feel any more "energy" than an afternoon cup of coffee or can of Coke.  I don't see these seriously competing with Red Bull, for those who depend on a real jolt, but I do know they taste awesome, and at 60 calories a can, that sure beats the aftertaste of Diet Coke.  You'll pay around $1.98 per can (give or take) for these little beauties, but they've been on sale everywhere because they're new, and I haven't paid more than .88 yet.  However, you can bet I'll be paying full price when the sales are done!  For now, you can go online and download coupons here and other places.

Happy Refreshment!
