The Siren’s Island
One of the many things I’m looking forward to when Summer comes is when Starbucks launches their Summer offerings. They always launch it accompanied by a big event and always with a knock-out theme. This year, the Starbucks Siren called customers to revel in a fun and feel-good break at the Siren’s Island – an island-carnival event where they could throw their cares to the wind and have a good time, all while enjoying the latest Starbucks’ summer offerings.
At the event, the entrance was a grand Starbucks Ship welcoming deck – a wooden dock that marked the entry way to the sweetest destination. Fusing the elements of an island getaway and a summer pier carnival, the Siren’s Island brought the best of summer experiences in one spot.
We were given a “ticket” to be able to try out the different stations that were inspired by the new Starbucks beverages.
First up is the tall, Dark Caramelt Mountain with its rich caramel lava.
This is where Ykaie tried to shoot three “caramel” balls into a pot but wasn’t successful…
Fortunes were uncovered at the Triple Mocha Room which was designed in true carnival fashion. Inside was a fortune teller with a crystal ball…
There were also plenty of games to play at the boothsjust like berry-picking at the Mixed Berries Forest and the classic ring toss game at the Red Velvet Magic Shack.
Ykaie enjoyed every minute at the carnival. Especialy because the funfair was complete with a food cart that served up the new Starbucks drinks and snacks. Check them out below…

Ykaie and I tried the new MIXED BERRY FRAPPUCCINO WITH POMEGRANATE PEARLS (Tall – ₱ 170 | Grande ₱ 185 | Venti ₱ 200) and we loved it! It’s mixed berry sauce blended with velvety milk creating a smooth fruity beverage. Topped with whipped cream to balance the tart berry flavor of this summer drink.
