The drinks featured in Phase 3 are totally different from the first 2 phases of the summer promotion. These featured beverages are not frappuccinos at all, but is still made with coffee. Yes, that’s right! Coffee. The exciting part still, is that it does not taste like the regular coffee that we are used to drinking. Refreshing, new, different. Definitely worth to be called a summer drink.
1. Very Berry Hibiscus SB Refreshers Beverage
A beverage made from coffee bean extract with bits of real blackberries. Taste great as is, but for those who wants it sweet, adding caramel or vanilla syrup would do the trick. Goes well with any of the lunch sandwiches.
2. Cool Lime SB Refreshers Beverage
Also made from coffee bean extract with a lemon wheel to add a sour punch to the taste buds. Kind of like lemonade but even better. For those who does not want it tangy and bright, adding vanilla or caramel syrup will help lessen the acidic kick in your mouth.
Phase 2 of the summer promotion 2012 gives a more Asian flavor to its drinks. More popular amongst the Japanese and Chinese, those with an eccentric taste and for those brave enough to try and acquire a taste for it.
1. Hojicha Tea Jelly
A somewhat toasty, sesame seed flavor to it with earl grey tea jelly to have a refreshing kick to it. Hojicha is a popular tea and Japan and is believed to be healthy, many of their children and elderly drinks it.
2. Red Bean Green Tea
Just the regular, delicious green tea cream frappuccino with added special sweet red beans on top. Some says it tastes kind of halo-halo.
Starbucks Summer Promotion 2012 Phase 1 features the following beverages:
1. Mocha Cookie Crumble
For lovers of cold chocolatey drinks, this a really good beverage to choose. Similar to the taste of Java Chip frappuccino, but with vanilla syrup, chocolate whip cream and cookie crumbs on top. Dark mocha frappuccino is not very far from its chocolateness!
2. Chocolate Cookie Crumble
The non-coffee version of mocha cookie crumble. Equally good comparing it to its counterpart, great for kids if parents don’t want their children to take in caffeine.
3. Strawberries and Cream
Favorite amongst children and those young at heart. Beautiful swirls of red in a snow white beverages entices the customer to try it out.
