Picture this: It's 11 a.m. and you desperately need a pick-me-up. Coffee sounds too strong and sparkling water just won't cut it. Cue S.Pellegrino's new line of coffee-inspired beverages!
The fan-favorite sparkling-water brand just dropped three new drinks that feature caffeine, coffee, and the same crisp taste sparkling-water fans know they can find with every sip of an S.Pellegrino beverage. The new flavor combinations — Essenza Exotic Vanilla & Coffee, Essenza Delicious Cocoa & Coffee, and Essenza Smooth Caramel & Coffee — are "inspired by the delight and ease of Italian coffee bars," the brand said on Twitter.
These coffee-flavored offerings feature zero calories and zero sweeteners with 30 milligrams of caffeine, which is less than half of the amount in an average cup of coffee. They're ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy the refreshing bubbles that S.Pellegrino is known for along with a quick hit of caffeine (not to mention some sinfully delicious coffee flavors). Speaking of the flavors, the Exotic Vanilla & Coffee features rich notes of espresso paired with sweet hints of vanilla, making it reminiscent of an iced latte without all the sugar. The Delicious Cocoa & Coffee drink is a bit richer and super smooth, and goes hand in hand with breakfast pastries like croissants and muffins. And last but not least, the Smooth Caramel & Coffee beverage is just as sweet and indulgent as its predecessors, and it features the most invigorating caramel flavor that's sure to wake anyone right up.
Since S.Pellegrino is bottled in Italy, the new Essenza line is still making its way to the United States, but it's said to be hitting shelves later this spring. And when it does, you can snag an eight-pack of these new flavors for $6 wherever S.Pellegrino is sold. The next time you're searching for a midmorning pick-me-up, reach for one of these bubbly coffee-inspired drinks. Cheers!
