Say yes!! to Starbucks Philippines new food, beverage, card and promo this SUMMER 2014

sbblog page
Heads up guys! our friends at Starbucks Philippines sent some info to us about the release of their new food and beverage this month. For this summer 2014, Starbucks Philippines is giving us a chance to choose our own refreshing summer drink and food adventure. There are a lot of new food and beverage to be released starting April 22 and I’m one of those people who are excited to try their new Banana Mango Frapuccino beverage, here in Tagaytay City, I attempted to order the fruity Frappucino and the barista told me that they don’t have it yet and the release of the new drink is on April 22. I was trying my luck if ever they might serve this to me before the main launch hahaha.

For Starbucks fans, you have to bookmark the date April 22 and 28 and its time to troop down the Starbucks café to cool our heads under the heavy rays of summer. Geez..its so hot this month of April!

I did some test drive of the new design of Starbucks card for this summer, thanks to our friends at Starbucks Philippines for sending us some cool new cards to be used this summer vacation.

And its cool to see that my iced coffee machiato is served in a big white mug.

Using a brand new card before the release date gave us some delays, some barista thought that this is not for the Philippines, but they got a shock when it registered some Pesos after the swipe hahaha.

Ok, I will just quit the talking.. let me present to you the summer 2014 new goodies at Starbucks Philippines.

New Ready‐To‐Eat Item
banana in starbucks
CAVENDISH BANANA
A bit of banana always adds more “mmmm” to your day.
One medium banana contains 2.5 grams of protein, 200 calories and 5.9 grams of dietary fiber.
They're rich in vitamins B6 to support your supply of energy, and vitamin C which promotes the health of
your heart, skin, eyes and immune system. Seems a banana can do almost anything, except peel itself.
Retail Price (₱20)

Me: At first, I thought that there’s some sort of typo in the news release that I’m reading and now its clear that Starbucks Philippines are now selling fresh fruit like that banana above. Bananas are easy to store, maintain and sold fast. I will bite this, because banana are healthy and a good food for people who are on a diet.
