I absolutely LOVED the Valencia Orange Refresher when we had it at Starbucks. And then they took it away and many hearts were broken.
Some of the newer Starbucks fans many not have actually heard of this drink.
It launched back in 2013 and was a HUGE hit. But alas, all good things must come to an end. This was eventually replaced by the Cool Lime Refresher, which was eventually replaced by the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher.
Despite MANY petitions and complaints, as of right now, there is zero sight of any return of this amazing drink. But not to worry, we are here for you!
