One of the more popular artisan ice cream flavors to hit the freezers these days is Salted Caramel. That said, it was only a matter of time before Starbucks would catch on and translate it into an equally decadent beverage.
Introducing the Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha… it’s available as a hot or cold drink. I like the salty kick on top. Next time I think I’ll ask for more salt. I got to try it for the first time last September 5. Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha (both hot and iced) costs P145 (Tall) / P160 (Grande) / P170 (Venti) while the frappuccino version costs P155 Tall / P165 (Grande) / P175 (Venti).
Of course, with every new Starbucks drink comes delicious food to accompany it. I especially love the Bacon and Parmesan Ring (P65). It’s basically a bagel with parmesan cheese and bacon bits baked into it. It’s best eaten warm and it’s sooo good. I love that it’s non-greasy too.
Ratatouille and Mozzarella Cheese on Multigrain Bread (P115) is officially my new favorite Starbucks sandwich. It’s vegetarian so it’s perfect for my health, hehe. It’s filled with spinach, tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, portobello and shiitake mushrooms, garlic, and onions then everything is smothered with melted cheese. I love it so much. I actually had it for lunch some days ago.
The Spanish Frittata Wrap (P155) is a must-try. Ground pork, sliced potaotes, egg, and tomatoes are drizzled in garlic mayo and wrapped in a soft, crisp, and warm tortilla. It’s slightly spicy but it’s yummy! 😀
Starbucks has a new cake too… Chocolate and Starbucks VIA Crumb Cake (P140 per slice / P1,450 whole). Chocolate and coffee combine in this divine dessert. It’s made with Starbucks VIA Italian Roast so you really taste and smell the coffee. There’s also some cashew meringue in the middle layer and chocolate bits all over. The downside is, my kids didn’t like it because they said it tasted like coffee… haha. I found it a tad to sweet. :p
These new food items will be available for a limited time starting Sept. 11, 2012! What’s more if you purchase ant Starbucks moon festival tumbler from Sept. 11 to Nov. 2, 2012 you get a chance to win a Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha Party for 4!
