Starbucks Just Dropped A Kiwi Starfruit Refresher And As A Barista, I Honestly Don't Know How I Feel

Starbucks FINALLY released the Kiwi-Starfruit refresher today across the US.

And only the biggest fanatics know the long story of this new refresher. It was set to come out much earlier this summer but was pushed back multiple times. One time, it was pushed back to try to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Then it got pushed back because most of the product had gone bad.

Starbucks across the US had to dump most of its product and await new production.

But, finally, on August 18, it has been released. Reading through the comments on Starbucks' Instagram or Facebook posts reveals that the sides are matched. Many LOVE this new drink, but many think Starbucks should've given up after the first release date didn't work out.

As a barista myself, my coworkers and I got to try the refresher months ago.

We, too, have consistently been stuck down the middle trying to decide if it's actually good or not.

Still on the fence about whether or not to try it? Well here are 4 different ways you might like it.

1. First, just try it as a refresher!

My roommate tried it this way this morning and said it tasted like a jolly rancher!

2. Next, try it as the stardrink.

This is just the refresher with coconut milk, essentially the same as the pink drink but with a different refresher base.

3. It can also be a Kiwi Starfruit Refresher with Lemonade.

From what I've heard, this refresher works REALLY WELL with lemonade. Maybe ask for half lemonade and half water if you don't like super strong flavors.

4. The barista way: a half kiwi starfruit refresher and half strawberry acai refresher.

This has been blasted across barista Facebook pages as the best way to have this drink. I tried it this way, too and it is very good, but I definitely suggest adding light water.

Another day, another Starbucks masterpiece. Get this refresher before it's gone, because considering its track record, it's only a matter of time until something else goes wrong.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
