Starbucks Has Started Testing Homemade Fountain Drinks

Starbucks Franchise

Starbucks has been testing its own fountain drinks in Atlanta and Austin, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Starbucks has been making an effort to be known for more than coffee. The company started testing the soda a few months ago in Seattle. 

The drinks are made fresh with carbonates and include flavours like lemon ale, spiced root beer and ginger ale.

The Wall Street Journal reported that at one Atlanta location the cost for the beverages was $2.45 for a tall, $2.95 for a grande and $3.45 for a venti.

The sodas are already generating some positive buzz. 

Melody, of starbucksmelody.com, reviewed the sparkling root beer and called it “crazy good…I just couldn’t stop.”
