I'm Obsessed With This New Pink Drink That's Better Than Starbucks

Starbucks' beloved Pink Drink (a.k.a. the Strawberry Açaí Refresher) has been without real competition for as long as I can remember. But it's just been dethroned by a popular coconut water brand.

Vita Coco just released the all-new Vita Coco Treats, a drink that's a dreamy blend of creamy coconut milk and sweet strawberries. As its name implies, the drink is meant to serve as a sweet and satisfying treat for those in need. And I'm calling it now, Vita Coco Treats is much better than Starbucks' Pink Drink (and it costs wayyy less).

Upon first sip, the drink is surprisingly tart, but it's a welcome pop of flavor. The tang from the strawberries is immediately mellowed out by a subtle, milky coconut flavor. The combination makes for an ultra-drinkable sip that's great alone and can also be used to mix up other fun bevvies. We're absolutely throwing this in a blender with some rum and ice for a boozy tropical treat.

Vita Coco Treats slays in the aesthetics department as well. Pour some over ice, add a couple of fresh strawberries, and you've got yourself a drink that might just be too pretty to drink.

Another great perk is that it costs $3.49 for a 16.9 oz. container, while a grande Pink Drink from Starbucks will run you about $4.75.

Vita Coco Treats is currently only available at Target, but it will also be available at Costco and on Amazon later this spring. For those eager to try it, Vita Coco is offering fans the chance to get one for free. Simply visit to find out how you can get reimbursed for your Vita Coco Treats purchase from Target.
