Starbucks Wants to Sell You Fancy Decaf Soda Now

After testing out their line of Fizzio™ sodas last year, Starbucks has officially added "handmade" non-caffeinated sodas without high fructose corn syrup to their menu in select South/western states. SodaStream has truly had a far-reaching effect on society at large.

After testing out the sodas last year, Starbuck's has now released three flavors: spiced root beer, golden ginger ale and lemon ale. This stuff — which will cost you about $2.45 for a "tall" — is different than anything you can get at home, they swear:

The Fizzio™ machine is a breakthrough in carbonation technology with the ability to deliver an unmatched soda experience. Unlike existing sodas or at-home carbonation options, the machine carbonates finished beverages, ensuring every ingredient in the beverage receives the same level of carbonation and maximum flavor. The machine also delivers a customizable experience with the capability to adjust the amount of "fizz" in each beverage, and provides the option for customers to experience their favorite beverages like Teavana® Shaken Iced Tea and Starbucks Refreshers™ beverages in a completely new way by "adding fizz" for $.50 USD.

[Emphasis added.]

"Fizzio™ Handcrafted Soda" is available at Starbucks locations in Hawaii, Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Nevada and Utah. Does your mouth call one of the lucky 16 states home?
