At around the same time last year, I got to experience drinks in Starbucks Singapore which had mango jelly. I reckoned they would be perfect for our country’s tropical setting. Now, Starbucks Philippines is about to introduce two new drinks you will surely love.
Starting tomorrow, July 26, 2016, eecreate your fun-filled adventures with new Starbucks Frappuccino® flavors – Mango Fruit Jelly Yogurt and Strawberry Fruit Jelly Yogurt. Get that much needed zesty boost in our unfriendly hot and humid weather with these new beverages boasting a delicious combination of chilled yogurt and fruity swirl blended with ice.

“The all new Mango Fruit Jelly Yogurt and Strawberry Fruit Jelly Yogurt Frappuccino® Blended Beverages are a delightful combination of fruity taste in a sweet jelly, layered with the smooth texture of yogurt. Reminiscent of a creamy parfait, these Frappuccino® Blended Beverages are inspired by our customers’ love of sweet fruit, making them the ideal beverage to lighten up one’s day,” said Keith Cole, head for marketing at Starbucks Philippines.
I can’t wait to delight in the sweetness of fresh mango or strawberry perfectly balanced by a hint of tartness from the yogurt for a mouth-watering beverage. To energize our day, the Mango Fruit Jelly Yogurt Frappuccino® perfectly blends honey-citrus sweet mango sauce with yogurt, topped with a layer of mango fruit jelly with real mango bits. Meanwhile, the equally refreshing and irresistible Strawberry Fruit Jelly Yogurt Frappuccino® features a visual treat with the yogurt blended with strawberry sauce puree topped with strawberry jelly with strawberry bits.
“Starbucks continues to innovate with new flavor and texture combinations to meet our customers’ expectations for the Frappuccino® Blended Beverages,” said Cole.
Both drinks are reasonably priced at P160 for tall, P175 for grande, and P190 for venti, and will be available until September 13, 2016.
WAIT, THERE’S MORE
For a total gastronomic experience, pair these new beverages with Starbucks featured food item, Triple Chocolate Truffle Cake – a moist buttery white chocolate sponge cake with generous layers of milk and truffle finished with dark chocolate ganache and white chocolate shavings.
You can also go for light but filling new core food items like the Maple Pecan Danish, a light and flaky Danish pastry with maple filling and topped with chopped pecans, perfect for a quick breakfast; Chicken Cannelloni, an al dente pasta filled with chicken flakes and topped with creamy tomato sauce, you can have for your lunch; and the Pan Au Chocolat, which features two chocolate batons wrapped in 100% French butter croissant dough and finished with chocolate drizzle that will satisfy your sweet tooth.
So much win!
