Greet the new month with the new items on the Starbucks menu, starting June 8. You have¬†two new drinks, three new cakes, three new pastries, and a vegan-friendly pasta dish to look forward to!¬†
The two new drinks are the Chocolate Choux Cream Frappuccino and the Strawberry Choux Cream Frappuccino¬†(P165/tall, P180/grande, and P195/venti). These pastry-inspired beverages are made with ice, milk, vanilla bean custard sauce, and, depending on the flavor, strawberry chunks or mocha sauce. Both these drinks are topped with a vanilla bean custard-flavored whipped cream and graham cracker crumbles on top.
If you want to pair your new drink with a new cake, you can opt for either of these chocolaty ones: the Chocolate Chip Mousse Cheesecake or you can go for the Blackout Cake. The Chocolate Chip Mousse Cheesecake (P205/slice and P1,995/whole) is a cheesecake with chocolate chip cookies and then topped with a velvety milk chocolate mousse. If you go for the Blackout Cake (P195/slice and P1,575/whole), it's a cake with layers of fudgy chocolate filled with chocolate fudge and slathered with a dark chocolate frosting.
If you have a thing for matcha desserts, choose the Green Tea Berry Crepe Cake instead. This crepe cake has 17 layers of crepe filled with green tea-flavored cream and blueberry compote.
For pastries, Starbucks has launched three new pastries: Cheesy Bun (P105) which stuffs the bun with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and parmesan cheese; Corn Fritter (P65) which is made with deep-fried doughnut clusters filled with corn kernels and then dunked in¬†a sugary glaze; and the Savory Mighty Muffin¬†which is a vegan-friendly muffin studded with vegetables, sauteed ground plant-based patty, and cream cheese filling.
There's a Bake Box, too! This bundles four pieces of the Dark Chocolate Macadamia Cookie for P245¬†or two Dark Chocolate Macadamia Cookies and two Double Chocolate Pecan Bars for P295.
The second new vegan-friendly item on the menu is the Baked Ziti (P195) that is made with plant-based meat, plant-based sauce, and plant-based cheese.
Starbucks new drinks are available starting June 8 for a limited time only, while the cakes and pastries will be available starting June 8 until July 26, 2021.
