    • Your favorite Green Tea Frappuccino® is infused with sweet and buttery Hazelnut syrup to create a popular combination of flavors! Whipped cream and a dash of matcha powder complete this drink.

Dessert In a Cup!

Starbucks Philippines has new offerings from beverages, to food, to Starbucks Cards! But it’s the new Starbucks Frappuccinos which leads the pack with the Banana Split Mocha Frappuccino and Irish Cream Coffee Pudding Frappuccino.

New Starbucks Frappuccinos

I call the tandem “Dessert in a Cup!” Surely, the foodie term ‘Banana Split‘ rings a bell pertaining to a much-loved local ice cream house known as Magnolia Ice Cream which we have enjoyed since our childhood years.

And now, Starbucks is bringing this childhood favorite in a form of frappuccino. The new Starbucks Frappuccino flavors are the Banana Split Mocha Frappuccino and Irish Cream Coffee Pudding Frappuccino.

The former is a mixture of Mocha Frappuccino blended with banana puree, then layered on top of strawberry whipped cream and finally drizzled with chocolate and crunchy waffle cone pieces on top.

For the coffee lover, the second one is basically made of coffee and pudding made more special with Irish cream on top. I’ve tried both and I love the Banana Split Mocha Frappuccino. The Irish Cream Coffee Pudding Frappuccino is just ok for me.

Lime Torte Cake

New Starbucks Food Items:

How does a Lime Torte Cake, Mango Crunch Cake, and Chocolate Marshmallow Cake sound? They sound delicious, don’t they? 🙂

I went to Starbucks Circuit Makati the other day for the Neverland Manila Young Gunz EDM party so I passed by the Starbucks branch first for some bites, And guess what, I saw the Lime Cake and I ordered it.

I didn’t expact much actually. If you’ve tasted the Lime Cake from Sagada Province north of the Philippines, the other lime cakes would usually pale thereafter.

In contrast, it was surpisingly good! The new Lime Torte Cake was a symphony of flavors and texture with its sweet and tangy flavor partnered with crunchy and crumbly cake.

I’ve yet to try the other two, but I’m already excited to go back to another Starbucks branch. 🙂

Other new Starbucks food items I’m looking forward to try are the Whole Wheat Bagel, Bagel Bites filled with Cream Cheese, Blueberry Greek Yogurt Parfait and Mango Greek Yogurt Parfait which are finished with a sprinkling of crunchy oat granola on top. Add to that the Starbucks Cold Brew Pitcher Packs as well.

Starbucks Chill Mini Card
