We had an early delivery today and got these amazing goodies from Starbucks Philippines’ 2018 Lunar New Year collection! Given that beagles have a special place in our hearts and in our home, we absolutely loved the specially-designed mug, canister, and Starbucks card (stuffed toy not included). We also can’t wait to see the rest of the collection that includes a tumbler and a Bearista Bear Dog! How cute is that!
Not to be missed is the 20th Anniversary Bearista Bear that dons a classic black apron with the 20th anniversary logo of Starbucks Philippines and a Philippine Flag inspired Frappuccino pin.
As Starbucks continues its 20th anniversary celebration, Starbucks mixes in one of Japan’s most popular culinary ingredients, the Okinawa Brown Sugar, to create Okinawa Brown Sugar Latté. The elegant drink highlights the hint of molasses found in the sugar and fuses in light caramel for a less sweet, coffee forward drink which will be available starting January 9th.
Also a returning favorite, the Salted Caramel Mocha Crumble, combines deep chocolate and espresso flavors with toffee nut syrup, layered with a delicious combination of whipped cream and caramel sauce. The beverage is topped with a blend of turbinado sugar and sea salt for a perfect sweet and savory taste. I guess this also means that we can now have the Butterbeer made-to-order beyond the Christmas season as its main ingredient is the toffee nut syrup.
For those that have already gotten their planners, be sure not to miss activating your Starbucks Kape Vinta Card this January and get the chance to win either a month or a year’s worth of Grande handcrafted beverages! Winners of these big anniversary treats will be announced on January 22 for the Starbucks for a Month, and February 12 for the Starbucks for a Year promo.
