(SPOT.ph) Some days just feel like they drag on, which can make for a totally blah feeling when you realize it's only Tuesday. But if there is a treat you can turn to any day of the week for a much-needed pick-me-up, it's a creamy drink at Starbucks! You'll want to do just that as they're launching new beverages and food items—as well as bringing back a number of formerly available fan faves.

There's a new coffee drink and other sips and eats at Starbucks:

Love the decadent-AF combo of chocolate and coffee and looking to go beyond the usual mocha drink? Definitely go for Starbucks' new Cocoa Cloud Macchiato (starts at P180/tall). Available hot or iced, this beverage will have you walking on (dessert) clouds as it brings together Starbucks' creamy cloud foam with cascading espresso before stirring in a lush vanilla syrup and a cocoa drizzle! Take a sip and you're hit with the cloud-like foam, before the rich and velvety coffee mix below comes through.

Two well-loved previous seasonal drinks are also making a comeback, bringing together lush, buttery, and robust-tasting worlds as they combine salted caramel and coffee. The Salted Caramel Cloud Macchiato (starts at P180/tall) goes for the airy-meets-smooth cloud macchiato format, while the Salted Caramel Frappuccino (starts at P185/tall) presents the flavor combo as a creamy iced-blended drink. And ICYDK, you can now get your favorite iced-blended Starbucks frapps with the Creamy Vanilla Whipped Cream (P20) on top—you could just about compare it to softened vanilla ice cream, and it's made to be delivery-friendly, too!

Of course, Starbucks' signature beverages are best paired with one (or more) of their food items on the side—and they've got new options on their shelves. If you're more for a savory treat, don't miss the Jamaican Patty (P115)—it's got plant-based minced meat flavored Jamaican-style and stuffed into a flaky patty. The Meatless Shawarma with Falafel (P175) is another light yet feisty contender, pairing a paper-thin flatbread with a filling of plant-based minced meat, falafel, and a creamy garlic sauce.

And if you're more for the sweet side of life, you're in for a real treat with the coffee shop's swoon-worthy new desserts. Go for a very berry bite with the Cherry Blossom Crepe Cake (P205/slice, P1,640/whole), which has paper-thin crepe layers alternating with a creamy floral berry filling; or whisk your taste buds away to the tropics with the Mango Passion Cheesecake (P265/slice, P2,650/whole) which carries the vibrant flavors of mango and passionfruit in the form of a dreamy cheesecake.

Like it flaky? Go for the returning Napoleones (P105), their take on the classic Bacolod pastry with a vanilla custard cream. You can also treat your Homer Simpson on a daintier note with the Sakura Donut (P60), topped with a floral pink chocolate ganache; or simply sate the good ol' hankering for chocolate with the Chocolate Cupcake (P140) that's got a chocolate cupcake base and a topping of chocolate cream, chocolate ganache, and cacao nibs!
