Fresh from the meet at the beautiful Starbucks branch at 32nd & 7th Ave. - Drive Thru. I still can't get over the coffee experience that I had with the group and the people from Starbucks. The gathering was small but warm. In an hour I was able to have a sip of the Tribute Blend of Starbucks, experience their newest featured beverages and a couple of bite at the newest food items of Starbucks which will be available  starting tomorrow April 24, 2012. I tell you, the experience was overwhelming. If you want to know what I'm talking about, I suggest you read on. :)

Honestly, I am not sure if I should squeeze my experience and talk about the newest offerings, but I am just going to type on as I feel. Upon arriving, I was asked what was my drink, first up on my head?
Soy Iced Caramel Macchiato
First up, Mr. Love Fernandez teaching us how to enjoy and taste coffee. 
1st You Smell - A big part that makes the whole experience great and helps you taste coffee better is letting your sense of smell experience coffee as well. :)
2nd you Slurp- (don't gulp like how I sometimes do )Now from what I got, is that in this way, you would be able to get a full taste of the flavor of the coffee. Letting your tongue experience the goodness of the coffee.

Next up is the featured beverage. They bring these beautiful sampler cups with miniature versions of their new blended beverage, The NEW! Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino®

To make is simple, picture this, chocolate, on top of chocolate with chocolate whipped cream. Yes, I think that is the first Chocolate whipped cream of Starbucks. As the people from Starbucks shared, the beverage is very indulgent and very good. (I gotta say yes to this). Though I am no longer a fan of Frappuccino® this one has definitely made me think twice into ordering this one every time I go to Starbucks these days.

The drink is the perfect dessert drink! it is a delectable treat that combines chocolate cookie bits with the famous Frap roast coffee for a twist on the classic Mocha Frap blended coffee. The new recipe is made from rich mocha sauce, vanilla syrup, milk and ice, finished off with whipped cream, chocolate drizzle and a cookie crumble topping.

The Retail Price: Tall - ₱ 165, Grande - ₱ 175, Venti - ₱ 185

So I guess you are wondering what about the young ones? Well, Starbucks also have this non-caffeinated version perfect for kids which would be the Chocolate Cookie Crumble Frappuccino® But I personally liked the the Mocha Cookie Crumble. :)

Not only that! When you buy a Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino Blended Beverage, you get a scratch card. Yes, Another first of Starbucks. Each scratch card has exciting treats that you can use on your next Mocha Cookie Crumble Beverage purchase. (Let me say again, only Mocha, Chocolate not included)

The scratch cards has 4 results with no 'try again' or 'better luck next time', They have 1 ADD ON, 1 UPSIZE, DOUBLE UPSIZE and the BUY 1 GET 1. So there, everyone is a winner! :) Yey!

Another beverage that they are offering is the Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino® Blended Beverage. This classic recipe is made with strawberry sauce, milk, blended with ice and topped with whipped cream is sure to surprise and delight. Dairy-sensitive customers now have the opportunity to customize the type of milk used in their beverage. Your favorite coffee-free Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino® Blended Beverage can be made with whole milk, non-fat milk or soy.To keep this beverage free from dairy, order without whipped cream.

Retail Price: Tall - ₱ 155, Grande - ₱ 165, Venti - ₱ 175

The kind people from Starbucks also taught us on how to customize our drinks, gave us this form for us to fill up and BOOM! There goes my creativity and my adventurous side. Let's see if you can read mine. :)
 And here's my drink!
Coffee Jelly Almond Syrup Blended Whipped Cream with Soy for Myke!!!
He he, well it wasn't bad. It was actually kind of good. :) You should try customizing your own drink from now on. Just ask your friendly barista how and they'd be happy to help you out. So go have fun, be adventurous  and enjoy your However-you-want-it Frappuccino Blended Beverage just as you like it! :)
