With more than 7,107 islands found in the Philippines, there was nothing more attractive than the Siren's Island which Starbucks set up over a week ago. With promises of new merchandise, drinks, and pastries, one couldn't help but to come in so they can get away from the madness of the city.
There were pocket events held all around the venue to give off that summer vibe which a lot of the attendees enjoyed since you can actually win exclusive Starbucks merch once you win at the booths.
There were 3 new drinks introduced during the launch. The Triple Mocha Frappuccino® is loaded with Dark Mocha Sauce layered between cold-brew infused whipped cream, white chocolate, and dark caramel. Take away the Dark Mocha Sauce and add some rich and buttery Dark Caramel Sauce and the drink transforms into the delicious Dark Caramel Coffee Frappuccino®. Another drink added to the regular menu is the Red Velvet Cake Cream Frappuccino®, a confectionery-inspired blend of chocolaty chips, mocha sauce, raspberry and vanilla syrup, topped with whipped cream.
They also launched new pastries and some of my favourites are the Smores, the Banana Chia Cookie, and the pomelo.
Carry with you the perfect complement for the balmy weather - the Botanical card, a Starbucks Card which features island scenes and tropical plants, available for an initial activation amount of Php300. Another fun and cute design is the new Popsicle card, also available for an initial activation of Php300.
There will also be new Starbucks merchandise to help you feel summer-ready wherever you go. The ‘A Day in The Island’ collection transports customers straight to the beach with its gradient designs depicting island scenes from sunrise to sunset and tropical plants. With the sun brightly shining this time of year, the ‘Gold’ collection also perfectly captures the glow and shimmer of the season with its golden tumblers in new and classic shapes.
Starbucks really knows how to launch their products and drinks and if you have these on hand, you'll surely be able to deal with the scorching heat of the sun.
