Starbucks Releases ‘Swicy’ Refresher Beverages Built Off Sweet Heat Trend

Feeling spicy? Starbucks has launched a beverage line just for you.

From April 16 on, customers can grab one of three new Spicy Lemonade Refreshers built off the current “swicy” trend. A hit with consumers, “swicy” is a combination of the words “sweet” and “spicy.”

Starbucks fans will also be able to try the coffee retailer’s new cold foam flavor: Spicy Cream Cold Foam.

The new refreshers and cold foam flavor will only be available this spring while supplies last, according to Starbucks.

The sweetness of Starbucks’ Refreshers are paired with its new Spicy Chili Powder Blend and lemonade to create a “swicy” flavor.

“Swicy” food is food that is a combination of sweet and spicy, also known as “sweet heat.” The craving has kicked up a notch in recent years, with more “swicy” products emerging, especially from the condiment and drink categories.
