Starbucks plans to offer the handcrafted sodas at locations in the southern United States and Hawaii. The new drinks, called Fizzio, will come in three flavors: spiced root beer, golden ginger ale and lemon ale. They will also be made without artificial sweeteners or high-fructose corn syrup.
The Fizzo machines used to make Starbucks soda will also be able to add fizz to other drinks offered by the coffee chain. Adding fizz only cost 50 cents and it can be done to a variety of drinks, including Teavana Shaken Iced Tea and Starbucks Refreshers.
The new Starbucks sodas will be available at 3,500 locations in the United States and the company expects to have them in all of its stores in the U.S. by this time next year.
