Starbucks Sent us Their New Offerings: Limited Edition Siren Card,Tumbler and Ready Brew Coffee

Yesterday a mysterious package showed up at my doorstep and the moment I recognized that it's from our friends over at Starbucks Philippines I got very excited to see what's the treat inside the box. I opened it up immediate with my 5-year old daugther sitting beside me, who was also very excited, and the stuff below greeted us.

Inside the box we found two new Starbucks featured coffee in VIA Ready Brew format, a Sakura-inspired tumbler, and the newest Starbucks collection card which a Special and Limited Edition Siren Card.

With these new featured coffee from Starbucks, not to mention they are an instant coffee version, will definitely make my morning more lively. I have mentioned this in my previous posts that my morning is not complete without at least a sip of hot coffee. And when coffee is available, this is the very first thing I take in the morning. So you can imagine how I really appreciate this gift that I got from Starbucks.

So let's talk more about the things inside this box. : )

The Special Limited Edition Siren Card from Starbucks. Taking a page off Greek Mythology, Starbucks calls her the Siren. What makes this Siren card special is that it is a hand-painted item with water colors and it represents the change of season. When you purchase this one from Starbucks, it comes with an initial consumable amount of Php300.

Apart from this Siren card, Starbucks is also offering Easter Egg Diecut Cards. These are delightfully decorated egg-shaped cards and are a highlight of any Easter basket. Hop inside a Starbucks store and you'll find the perfect egg. It's time to get "eggcited" for the season! This is also now available and each of these Easter Egg cards comes with an initial consumable load amount of Php500.

This is the 12oz Charm Night Sakura Tumbler sporting flower and cherry blossom artwork. Since this one is in pink, either my daughter or my wife will absolutely be using it. And yeah. they liked it as soon as it came out of the packaging.

starbucks via ready brew coffee

Okay this version of instant coffee from Starbucks might have been around for a time now, but to me this is the first time I really became aware of it. All my life I was only aware of coffee beans version of Starbucks featured coffee lines, which needed to grind first before consuming. That being said, I was even more excited to try it out as soon as possible. This is called the Starbucks VIA Ready Brew coffee variant, and yes it is an instant coffee. Simply pour in hot water in your mug or cup then follow by one of its sachets and you are ready to go, just like that.

The Starbucks Via Ready Brew Coffee comes in three different variants, the Tribute Blend, Caramel Latte and the Caffee Mocha. But in the package that I received I got the Caramel and Tribute. I haven't tried the Tribute version yet, but the Caramel Latte is so good. : )

Also, Starbucks has just brought back the Macchiato madness with brand new flavours and mixes. See below.

Chocolate-Hazelnut-Macchiato-2 Chocolate Hazelnut Macchiato

The Chocolate Hazelnut Macchiato combines layer upon layer of delicious chocolate and hazelnut flavors with best quality espresso.

Roasted Caramel Macchiato

Second in line is the Roasted Caramel Macchiato. I like everything caramel, this means I am already sold on this one. I will really really try it as soon as I get to one of the nearest Starbucks shops here. Here's a description of this beverage from Starbucks "Delight in its layers of smooth, velvety milk, top quality espresso, and deliciously rich caramel taste."

Caramel Macchiato Frappuccino

Last but not least is the Caramel Macchiato Frappuccino. The most popular Caramel Macchiato in a Frappuccino variant. Enjoy the same delicous taste of smooth milk, caramel drizzle, and a shot of their best quality espresso, but in a fun frappuccino form.

Which TEAM (Macchiato) are you on?


Starbucks Philippines is asking fans which new macchiato variants they are rooting for and cast their votes on their official Philippine website (see in the image above) until March 4, 2016. The winning Macchiato beverage will be celebrated with "Buy One, Get One" offer on March 7, 2016 in all Starbucks stores nationwide.
