I must admit, I was pretty surprised by the new espresso-based drinks Starbucks came out with recently. Let’s just say they’re a lot more adventurous compared to the usual Starbucks beverage lineup. Are you ready for something different?
First we have the Starbucks Valencia Orange Cocoa Cappuccino (Short ₱155 / Tall ₱165 / Grande ₱180 / Venti ₱195). Decadent Valencia Orange Mocha Sauce combined with milk then topped with dense creamy, cappuccino-worthy foam. It is then layered with affogato-style signature espresso shots, perfectly sweet cocoa powder and tartly-sweet bits of orange peel. This luxurious layered coffee drink is available in hot, iced, and blended formats.
Not fond of the fruit + coffee combination? There’s the Tahitian Vanilla Macchiato (Short ₱155 / Tall ₱165 / Grande ₱180 / Venti ₱195). Velvety steamed milk is infused with floral, Tahitian vanilla syrup before being topped with Starbucks’ signature espresso. Authentic vanilla bean sauce and and ground vanilla bean pod sprinkles top this drink. It’s also available in hot, iced, and blended formats.
Created to celebrate Starbucks’ 40th anniversary, the Starbucks Tribute Blend combines Ethiopian sun-dried beans, Aged Sumatra, complex coffees from Papua New Guinea along with bright, balanced, and nutty Colombian coffee. It’s available in the form of Whole Bean Coffee (P445) and in VIA packs (P375 for 12 packs).
Of course there’s a delicious new selection of lunch sandwiches starting with the Cheese Steak on Ciabatta Bread.
There’s also Clubhouse on Sourdough Bread.
If you’re more of a seafood person, there’s Salmon Dill on Multi-Grain Bread.
I’m excited to try the Cold Soba with Chicken. Soba noodles are tossed with chicken flakes, crunchy vegetables, and savory dressing.
I’m also interested in the Sweet Potato Salad. It combines sweet potatoes and regular potatoes with onion, celery, mixed greens, hard-boiled egg, and honey mustard dressing.
Starbucks now offers guilt-free munchies too. The Harvest Box Snack Packs are available in three variants:
- Power Mix – Nuts, dried fruit, seeds and a sprinkle of chocolate
- We Love Nuts – Peanuts, almonds, cashews, and Brazil nuts
- Yo Cherry – Dried cherries, hazelnuts and yogurt balls
These new food and drink offerings will be available starting tomorrow, February 21.
