Basic caramel lattes are shaking.
The Philippines will finally get a taste of one of the most Instagrammed drinks when Starbucks brings the Pumpkin Spice Latte to the country on Oct. 25.
The official Starbucks Philippines Facebook page made the announcement earlier today in a cheeky post that shows the Pumpkin Spice Latte in orange specs.
It says: “Yup, you’ve guessed it right! See you on October 25! #PHLovesPSL”
The drink is a Fall favorite in many parts of the world but since the Philippines is a tropical country — and doesn’t have a Fall season — the special edition latte never made it to its shores until now.
It’s made with espresso, milk, and autumnal spices and flavors like pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. It’s also topped with whipped cream for good measure.
It can be ordered hot, with ice, or as a blended Frappuccino. Here in the Philippines, it is priced at PHP155 (US$2.87) for a tall, PHP165 (US$3.06) for a grande, and PHP180 (US$3.33) for a venti. Since it’s a seasonal offering, the drink will only be around for a limited time.
Official word is that it’s “until supplies last.” Not the most helpful information, but there you have it — at the very least, it should give curious coffee drinkers at least a few weeks to go and give it a try.
Starbucks Philippines will also be launching a Pumpkin Spice Latte-themed card Manileños can load up with credits and use to pay with at any Starbucks store.
