Guide to Starbucks Frappuccino Grand Launch

Sunday, April 9, 2017

Southerners are in for a treat! Starbucks Philippines is now at SM Mall of Asia to bring the latest Frappuccino flavors this summer.

I couldn't be any happier when I found out that this event will happen in the south because I'm only an hour away from MOA. I'm actually the first one to register even if I left the house tad late. (I wish I can always be early in events. 😂 )

Remember that a person can only get one event pass regardless of the number of destination merchandise purchased. I was so glad to see that they also sell the Festival bag that I'm starting to collect since this year started, at a lesser price! 🙌🏼

SHOW YOUR FRAPPUCCINO FLAVOR

At the first station located at the right (once you enter), there is a designated booth where you can try the two new summer frappuccino flavors from Starbucks. It was scorching hot in the main atrium that morning that's why these frappuccinos are perfect to beat the heat.

The Pop'zel Coffee (L) and Roasted Marshmallow S'mores Frappuccino (R) are both available in stores starting April 18!
Tall | P175 , Grande | P190 , Venti | P205

I didn't pass the opportunity to try out the new Pop'zel Coffee Frappuccino! It was a great way to feed my sweet tooth with two of my fave snacks back then: Popcorn and Pretzels. I'm pretty sure that a cup of this blended beverage can instantly boost my mood because of its coffee and caramel combination. 

The returning favorite, Roasted Marshmallow S'mores Frappuccino, is also making a comeback on Starbucks Frappuccino menu this summer. I find the marshmallow too sweet for my taste. But because of its graham crumble add-ons, I think this drink will suffice whenever I feel like getting myself a frappuccino. :)

SHOOT THE POPCORN

First challenge! Shoot THREE popcorn pillows on the Frappuccino cup ring within 30 seconds to win one tall frappuccino cup. What can I say, I managed to shoot the pillows in less than 10 seconds. Yasss! 😏

SHOW YOUR CREATIVITY

Everyone was also given the chance to unleash their creativity in the board by writing or doodling their frappuccino favorites. Don't expect me to ace this activity because I'm not your artsy-kind-of-person. lol

I hope Starbucks will hold a Barista Doodling workshop in the future so that I can also learn how to be as creative as the partners are when it comes to creating art on boards. :)

NEW FOOD ITEMS TO LOVE


Because Starbucks' Food menu is always evolving, the Camembert and Mascarpone Blueberry Cheesecake and Caramel Almond Crunch Cake are officially welcomed in their core food menu. This means that the two new pastries below will always be available in stores! <3

Camembert and Mascarpone Blueberry Cheesecake (L) | P165
Caramel Almond Crunch Cake (R) | P160
The Camembert and Mascarpone Blueberry Cheesecake is an automatic crowd favorite. It's buttery crust and silky texture tops my cheesecake faves at Starbucks. Too bad it's only available for stores outside Metro Manila.

On the other hand, the Caramel Almond Crunch Cake will be enjoyed by Starbucks lovers who often visits the cafes in the metro. The caramel fudge glaze on top is a killer because saying it's really sweet is an understatement. However, the layer of moist cake, light caramel mousse, almond crunch, and buttery flaky crust makes up for it. 

Also featured in Starbucks Food items are the Roast Beef Deli on Ciabatta Bread and the Banana Chocolate Danish

Roast Beef Deli on Ciabatta Bread | P165
Banana Chocolate Danish | P95

Hooray to more savory options because the Roast Beef Deli on Ciabatta Bread is something I'd order for whenever I'm on the hunt for a nice, fulfilling breakfast alongside my favorite Iced White Chocolate Mocha. It's got a slow roasted beef, sliced button mushrooms, sweet and tangy sliced pickles and horseradish spread that are layered on toasted rosemary ciabatta bread.

Tired of your regular Starbucks Cinnamon Danish order? Go ahead and try the new Banana Chocolate Danish. The slivers of almond on top remind me of Alcapone, but it also has a chocolate and banana filling to complete your danish experience.

Because I will still choose Matcha over Coffee, I've professed my love for the Green Tea Cream Blended Beverage on this green platform hihi <3

PS. The platforms are too pastel-y for my life. I love it!! :)
