Summer here is one of the most exciting seasons for Filipinos. It is a time for fun vacations in some of the most wonderful destinations in the country. From globally-renowned tropical getaways like Boracay and Palawan to cold destinations like Baguio or Banaue, summer is a season to bond with friends and family.
To make summer more exciting and refreshing, Starbucks is introducing a new Frappuccino® flavor and will bring back a well-loved flavor from last year. This summer, get ready for an unexpected throwback as Starbucks brings together two of our childhood favorites popcorn and pretzels in one delectable drink. Pop’zel Coffee Frappuccino® Blended Beverage is blended with delicious popcorn and pretzel syrup and topped with real caramel popcorn and salted pretzel over whipped cream.
A returning favorite, the Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Frappuccino® Blended Beverage is flavored with vanilla, layered with smooth marshmallow whipped cream, indulgent chocolate sauce, and graham crumble. This delicious concoction is then finished with whipped cream and more graham crumble on top. Both flavors will be available for a limited time only starting April 18.
“This summer, the iconic Frappuccino® blended beverages are inspired by our customers’ personalities: fun, creative and bold,” said Keith Cole, marketing head for Starbucks Philippines. “We have created beverages that match customers’ summer moods, handcrafted with flavors that blend sweet with savory or delight with the most exciting toppings.”
For a different kind of refreshment that is perfect to be enjoyed during hot summer days at home, Starbucks VIA® Iced Coffee has you covered with its flavor profile defined by hints of citrus and a caramelly-smooth finish. For those who prefer brewed coffee as a delightful start of your day or as a way to unwind during sweltering summer afternoons, the Starbucks Kati Kati Blend is perfect with its balance of citrus and spice notes from Kenya and floral aromas and crisp acidity from Ethiopia. Speaking of exotic coffee destinations, Starbucks Reserve® Nicaragua La Roca and Starbucks Reserve® Costa Rica West Valley Yellow Honey will bring you to a journey of flavors.
For those who want something filling and can be perfectly paired with either a Frappuccino® or a cup of brewed coffee, there’s the Banana Chocolate Danish, a baked pastry filled with chocolate and banana. For a savory option, you may try the new Roast Beef Deli on Ciabatta Bread, sandwiched between tender rosemary ciabatta are slices of slow-roasted beef, button mushrooms, tangy and sweet pickles, and finished with horseradish spread.
Meanwhile, chocoholics out there will surely be pleased with the new 65% Dark Chocolate. This single-origin chocolate bar was sourced from the award-winning Malagos Chocolate from Davao. Every bar has 65% cocoa solids and has a distinct fruity flavor profile.
For My Starbucks Rewards® members, Starbucks Frappuccino® die-cut cards will be available in new colorways, and can be bought for an initial activation fee of ₱1,000. Meanwhile, the new ‘Stay Cool’ card will be available for ₱300. Both will be in Starbucks stores starting April 18.
