Sensational summer ‘love’

YOU can love your family, friends and special ones but can you really love a beverage (or two)? Well, there is noway of knowing until you try it out. So, head on to your nearest Starbucks for a taste of its latest summer beverages, which this writer says, will add sunshine (if not love) to the season.

From August 2, Starbucks aims to “wow” one’s tastebuds with its new summer blended beverages. From mouth-watering tastes and textures to refreshing new flavours and “summery” hues, crunchy ingredients included – these newbies will only be available for a limited-time.


Hurry on and drop by to find out if you will be besotted, go nuts about and have a thing for Starbucks latest Frappuccino blended beverages:

▶ Acai Mixed Berry Frappuccino blended beverage delightfully refreshes one’s palate. Pretty in summery pink, the beverage offers acai berry-infused yoghurt with mixed berry “pearls” that burst with summer flavours and topped off with a light and creamy milk foam. In all, you will have to try it to believe that you will love this nothing-but-lovely concoction that could leave you almost spellbound and surely back for more.

▶ Granola Dark Mocha Frappuccino blended beverage is sure to leave granola fans going ga-ga and craving for more. The thought of signature Starbucks’ coffee savoured with rich chocolate flavours and a tasty blend of hearty cereal, topped with creamy milk foam and generous sprinkles of crunchy granola and raspberry-pink dried berries – are you not already driven to get a taste of this delicious beverage that will sweep you off your feet?


While summer comes as a time to embrace outdoor activities like a leisurely hike or a road trip, it is also one of the best times to make special memories of, hence Starbucks’ Vintage Americana-inspired merchandise designs to add colour and excitement to summer days.

In attractive colours like magenta, turquoise, metallic blue and red – check out the Summer Venti Thermos that offers a serving of 20 ounces and comes designed with a black strap, convenient to take on any summer jaunt and outdoor excursion. Stainless steel, double-walled and vacuum-insulated makes this thermos ideal, maintaining its interior temperature for extended periods.


For those who enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee, try East African. The Africa Kitamu Blend offers citrus and warm herbal notes, delicate in acidity, with a remarkably smooth finish. The bright juicy flavours reflect Kitamu – a place that in Swahili means “beyond description”. Served hot or over ice, a pot would make nice for sharing over casual and cosy summer get-togethers.
