Surprise! Starbucks is known for its coffee. Obviously, that’s not much of a surprise, but the fact that the coffee brand just launched an energy drink might be.
The partnership is a team-up between the two brands and is meant to combine Starbucks’ products with Pepsico’s distribution capabilities and bring cold, ready-to-drink beverages to grocery stores and other retailers. The BAYA energy drinks are one of the first launches, and they’re available now in three different flavors: Mango Guava, Raspberry Lime, and Pineapple Passionfruit.
Unlike the brand’s more coffee-forward drinks (which also got an expansion under the partnership), BAYA features antioxidant vitamin C and is made with the caffeine found in coffee fruit. They pack a punch, too, with 160mg per 12-ounce can.
While the drinks are available in grocery stores and convenience stores now, you’ll be able to pick one up at your local Starbucks beginning March 1 for a suggested price of $2.89.
While a great cup of coffee is always a good way to start your morning, if you want to try a different perk-me-up, BAYA might be the answer.
