Caramel vs. Hazelnut: the Starbucks Philippines Macchiato showdown

Posted on - in Events, Food

Starbucks Philippines puts the spotlight on their Macchiatos starting February 25. One’s an all-time favorite and the other a new and upcoming flavor. If you were to choose, which would you pick?

Starbucks Caramel Macchiato

The Starbucks Caramel Macchiato is made with roasted espresso, freshly steamed milk, and vanilla-flavored syrup, topped with caramel sauce. This core drink has been the favorite of many espresso lovers.

The Hazelnut Macchiato is Starbucks’ new drink, also made with espresso and steamed milk, but with hazelnut syrup and hazelnut drizzle finish. A mix of bold and sweet.

Tell Starbucks Philippines which of the two you like better — the all-time favorite Caramel Macchiato or the new Hazelnut Macchiato. Visit their stores on February 25 onwards, get a taste of either or both, and participate in its online poll that will run until March 13.  The winning beverage will be announced the next day, March 14. What’s more, there will be a special “Macchiato Buy One, Get One” event happening on March 17 at all Starbucks stores nationwide.

Don’t forget: the Hazelnut Macchiato will come in stores on February 25. Compared to the Caramel Macchiato, this beverage will be on the menu for a limited time, until April 21. So don’t miss this out when it makes its way on Starbucks’ shelves!
