We got dibs on Costa Coffee's new drinks
They are super refreshing!
(SPOT.ph) We will always have a soft spot for Costa Coffee's Frostinos. Britain's leading coffee chain had been serving stellar drinks since 1971, but it was only when they launched in the Philippines in 2015 that they designed frozen blended drinks—specifically for the locals' sweet-loving palate and the country's warm climate. Now, the Frostino is also available internationally.
For this blistering summer, Costa Coffee is coming out with two non-caffeinated Frostinos: a Mango Coconut (P165/Primo, P175/Medio, P190/Massimo) and a Passion Fruit Pineapple (P165/Primo, P175/Medio, P190/Massimo)—both will be available tomorrow, May 5.
The Mango Coconut is a taste of the tropics. Sun-ripened mangoes are blended with flakes of young coconut, with milk rounding out those flavors. The tasty drink is finished off with cream and more coconut flakes to emphasize that refreshing nuttiness.
Those who love sweetness will appreciate that the Passion Fruit Pineapple leans on that side of the spectrum. There's a bit of tartness in the mix, too, but just enough to perk up those flavors. The intense citrus notes will surely cool anyone off.
Pandan Swiss Roll (P130), Chocolate Caramel Fudge (P150), Strawberry Shortcake (P150), Tiramisu (P150)
New pastries are also invading Costa Coffee's shelves. There's the Pandan Swiss Roll in Dark Chocolate Glaze (custard provides a nice brightness to the deep chocolate) and a Chocolate Caramel Fudge with Pili Nuts (the texture of these proudly Pinoy nuts resemble macadamias). If you're not fond of local flavors, they have Strawberry Shortcake and Tiramisu, too!
