In Summertime It’s Starbucks (Win!)

May 19, 2024

Forget the solstice; we know the best season’s arrived when Starbucks‘ summer menu returns to stores in Canada! This year, offerings include the introduction of a trio of new beverages featuring Raspberry Flavoured Pearls – Summer-Berry Starbucks Refreshers Beverage, Summer-Berry Lemonade Starbucks Refreshers Beverage and Summer Skies Drink Starbucks Refreshers Beverage.  

Available for a limited time, while supplies last, Summer Berry Refreshers Beverages feature a sweet mix of raspberry, blueberry and blackberry flavours, poured over raspberry flavoured pearls (a Starbucks first!). But that’s not all, edging its way into the sky is the new and fruity Pineapple Cloud Cake part of the new summer menu items at Starbucks! 

Below are a few summertime highlights at Starbucks:

  • Say hello to summer with a splash of our oh-so-cool new seasonal icon! Three new Starbucks- Refreshers Beverages feature a cool combination of summer berries that is bright blue with new, juicy raspberry pearls 
  • Summer-Berry Starbucks Refreshers Beverage features a sweet and summery blend of raspberry, blueberry and blackberry flavors shaken with ice and poured over a layer of newpopping raspberry flavoured pearls. 
  • Summer-Berry Lemonade Starbucks Refreshers Beverage is bright and refreshing. The drink combines Summer-Berry Refreshers shaken with ice and lemonade and poured over a layer of popping raspberry flavoured pearls.  
  • Summer Skies Drink is a dreamy sip that’s bursting with fruity flavour. The non-dairy beverage features Summer-Berry Refreshers creamy coconut beverage poured over ice and a layer of newpopping raspberry flavoured pearls that bring a burst of raspberry flavour 
  • The new raspberry flavoured pearls add a pop of flavour and colour and will be a first for Starbucks menus in the U.S. and Canada. The beverage development team at Starbucks drew inspiration from drinks around the world, with Starbucks stores in Asia Pacific having tapped into the trend in recent years, offering a Dark Caramel Coffee Sphere Frappuccino with bursting coffee spheres and a Peach Plum Pearls Oolong with plum-flavoured pearls.  
  • The new pearls build on Starbucks leadership and innovation in textured beverages, which has been on the menu since 2012 with the global debut of Starbucks Refreshers Beverages, known for their real fruit pieces of strawberry pineapple and dragonfruit (which most recently got a spicy kick!). 
  • Enjoy any of the new summer beverages with the new Pineapple Cloud Cake, an airy cake layered with a lightweight pineapple cream and pineapple spread, including whole fruit pieces, topped with a sweet drizzle, so every bite feels like a summer oasis. 

Additionally, Starbucks is introducing a new line of vibrant, summer-inspired drinkware. From cold cups in a variety of trending colours and prints, to ever-popular iridescent bling cold cup, Starbucks summer merchandise is the perfect addition for any sun-soaked moment. 

Plus, back by popular demand, starting today and running through June 17, Starbucks Rewards members can play the Starbucks Summer Game, Dream Days, with nearly 1 million prizes—including an all-expenses paid trip for two to Costa Rica and Starbucks coffee farm, Hacienda Alasacia. —Vita Daily
