The energy drink reign is back.
In an attempt to get back to the way things were before the coronavirus, Starbucks has launched its energy drink re-brand.
The drink, available in more than a dozen flavours, was first released in Australia in December.
The new drink comes in five flavours including strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and strawberry.
“We’ve made a lot of changes to the brand to make it easier for consumers to find the energy drink they’re looking for,” Starbucks spokesperson Emily Matson said.
“For example, our new drink includes a simple, simple and easy-to-drink taste.”
The drink also has a number of health benefits, including a reduced risk of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and cancer.
Starbucks has been rolling out energy drinks since 2013.
“I don’t think we’re going to stop selling them, but I’m sure they will change,” Ms Matson told news.com.au.
“It’s a way of getting people back into the habit of getting a drink.
It’s an effective way to reduce the amount of sugar and fat they consume.”
A number of the new drinks, including the new strawberry one, are also available in Australia.
“The energy drink has been really effective in helping people to switch from sugar and refined sugar,” Ms Mattson said.
Ms Mattington said the company’s strategy was to keep customers coming back to its drinks.
“They’re really well liked by our customers, they’re a good deal,” she said.
The re-branded drink will be available in all of the country’s 50 states, territories and the Northern Territory.
It is available for $4.99 for adults, $2.99 (15-19 year-olds) and $1.99(12-14 year-old).
“We are offering the drink in our new retail outlets, but we are also expanding it across our stores in Victoria and NSW,” Ms Meyers said.
