Lady Gaga, Frappucino, and Starbucks

Lady Gaga is taking over Starbucks in the US, meanwhile in Manila - YOU can take over your own Frappuccino.

Starbucks Philippines launches the new However-You-Want-It Frappuccino® blended beverage, allowing customers to create a blended beverage that is uniquely their own. Customers can tailor their Frappuccino® beverage with a variety of fresh milks or soy, choose the intensity of their coffee and pick any combination of syrups or toppings – the same way they customize their favorite Starbucks® espresso beverage.

Among the thousands of new combinations, Frappuccino® blended beverage creations includes my dream come true!

Soy Green Tea Cream Frappuccino® blended beverage

A delightful treat, this beverage is made with matcha powder and soy milk, blended with ice and topped with whipped cream. I've been looking for matcha powder drinks and eversince Matcha Cafe was gone, I wished that a bigger player would take on the flavor. Starbucks did! :D

From soy combinations to those that limit the number of calories, customers can now select their favorite ingredients to find a Frappuccino® blended beverage to meet their dietary needs. By choosing nonfat milk with sugar-free syrup, a Tall (12 fl. oz) blended beverage has only 100 calories, while doubling the Starbucks® Frappuccino® roast coffee and skipping the syrup will intensify the taste, without increasing the sugar.
