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.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.
