Starbucks Summer 2016

Summer 2016 is definitely hotter (literally and figuratively) than past summers. Cool down with this year’s Starbucks Summer specials.

There’s nothing like a delicious sweet drink on a hot summer day. And Starbucks has prepared two special Frappuccino beverages to help you beat the heat.

Starbucks Roasted Marshmallow S'mores Frappuccino Blended Beverage

The Starbucks Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Frappuccino Blended Beverage is available for a limited time only. The drink is inspired from S’mores, a classic American campfire snack. The drink evokes the tastes of chocolates and roasted marshmallows with the texture of graham crackers. It is a bit sweet for some. I order it with an extra shot of Starbucks espresso to give it more bitterness and a better balance of flavors. It is available as a coffee-based or as a cream-based Frappuccino. So this is a treat for adults and kids.

Also available for a limited time only is the Starbucks Summer Berry Panna Cotta Frappuccino Blended Beverage. It is a favorite from past summers and Starbucks has brought it back to please your palate and cool you down. It is a cream-based drink flavored with a blend of berries and served with a chunk of creamy, sweet panna cotta. It is a delightful sweet pop of sweetness with a hint of berry tartness.

These are best enjoyed while catching up with family and friends. Capture those bonding moments and join the Starbucks Frappuccino & Friends Photo Contest. Upload your Frappuccino memories to the Starbucks Philippines Frappuccino website at http://www.starbucksfrappuccino.ph for a chance to win a pre-loaded Starbucks Frappuccino® Card. You may join from April 19 to 30, 2016.
