New on the Menu: New Lunch Sandwiches and New Blended Beverages to Try at Starbucks
Dark Mocha and Green Tea with White Pudding plus one new sandwich for each day of the week!
(SPOT.ph) Milk tea has done everything it can to get into our hearts but place a warm cup of coffee in front of us? We’re all yours. Rain has been falling on Manila almost every week now and it makes us want to crawl into the familiar comfort of Starbucks-it’s a nice place to meet up and hole up in but if you’re feeling a little tired of the same old cup of joe, Starbucks is offering two new promotional blended beverages.
From July 16 to September 9, you can try their new Dark Mocha White Chocolate Pudding Frappuccino or Green Tea White Chocolate Pudding Frappuccino. We’re guessing that the limited time is an experiment, testing to see if people have the patience to order something with a deceptively long name, but it’s basically two of your favorite Starbucks flavors with the added touch of white chocolate pudding.
The Dark Mocha blended beverage (Tall, P190; Grande, P200; Venti, P210) is only mildly sweet despite the bits of chocolate chips mixed in it. The white chocolate pudding at the bottom of the cup provides an added gelatinous texture as you sip. The Green Tea version (Tall, P180; Grande, P190; Venti, P200) benefits from that sweet touch as well, but of course, it comes with a distinct aftertaste of tea.
Starbucks also offers "new" lunch sandwiches. Your favorite Clubhouse (P175) makes a comeback but the new Bacon and Cheese on Herbed Ciabatta Bread (P165) will definitely earn a spot in your heart. It’s made with six types of cheeses that only serve to highlight the salty taste of the crispy bacon inside. We’re also glad to see chocolate chips returning on the menu but this time, they brought a friend. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwhich (P80) is the sinful treat of two soft and chewy but not crumbly cookies with roasted marshmallow in between. Chunks of Belgian chocolate? Yum.
