I can’t believe summer’s over! While the heat remains, rain showers and gray skies are becoming more frequent. Don’t you wish we can savor the sunniest days of the year for just a bit longer—especially if you’re a student who just went back to school yesterday?
Starting today, June 4, Starbucks is giving everyone—students and working folk alike—their ultimate break companions in the form of refreshing and revitalizing beverages that will help you sit still, slow down, and savor its rich flavors, as well as nautical-themed merchandise that would remind you of your ocean escapades last summer.
Available for a limited time only, Starbucks’ indulgent Ultra Caramel Coffee Sphere Frappuccino is an upgrade on the classic Coffee Frappuccino but with a refreshing pop to it: small coffee spheres bursting with Starbucks Brazilian Coffee blended with dark caramel sauce. The delectable blended beverage is topped with a dollop of whipped cream and even more coffee spheres.
Customers with fruitier cravings will love the new Watermelon and Lychee Aloe Frappuccino, a drink that looks and tastes like a slice of watermelon. The zesty blended beverage is made with watermelon juice blended with chia seeds, layers of floral lychee-infused whipped cream, and diced sweet lychee aloe. With stunning layers of red, white, and green, this vibrant drink will satisfy both taste buds and your Instagram feed. This is perfect for me because I’m currently not allowed to drink coffee, huhu. Both drinks are available in Tall (P170), Grande (P185), and Venti (P200).
Starbucks also captures our seafaring summertime daydreams with Anchors Aweigh. The nautical-themed collection depicts cute illustrations done in line drawing style in white, ultramarine, and navy blue colors with red and silver accents.
A perfect complement to the new summer merchandise is the Nautical Whale Card. This quirky card features a whale diving into the ocean with its tail sticking out against the sailor stripe design, available for a minimum activation amount of P1,000.
We all deserve a break! Grant yourself permission to pause from the daily grind and enjoy a short and sweet escape at Starbucks to try these indulgent new offerings.
