Recently, the coffee chain has offered Unicorn, Mermaid and Crystal Ball Frappuccinos. While these colorful beverages are very photographic, the flavors were slightly questionable. From sweet and sour to just confusing, those limited timed beverages didn’t really have any staying power. Of course, many people had to sip them to be part of the experience. Luckily, those beverages didn’t quite find a strong fan base.

With summer in full force, the Mango Dragonfruit Starbucks Refreshers looks to be a bright, yet thirst quenching option to the beverage menu. The use of dragonfruit is somewhat usual. Often dragonfruit is considered a brightly colored, yet mild flavored fruit.

Dragonfruit is often compared in flavor to a mild pear or a honeydew melon. The texture is similar to a kiwi. This fruit is often used to offer a bright colorful contrast to a dish or beverage. For the most part, this fruit is more a feast for the eyes with its bold colors than a bold flavor.

The combination of dragonfruit and mango is smart. Those dragonfruit flavors works well with other fruit flavors. For example, adding this fruit to smoothies brings out the subtle flavors of other fruits. While it may not be able to stand on its own, working with other fruits is a delightful combination.

Overall, this beverage continues the tropical flavors trends. From beverages to foods, more companies are embracing the tropical flavors. What was formerly considered exotic is now considered more approachable.
