This year may be a rough year but you still deserve something special by the end of the year.
Starbucks Philippines is here to “Carry the Merry” as it rolls out its latest Philippine-exclusive designs for 2021.
“To many, Starbucks is a reassurance that the holiday is here. It has always been part of festivities with its rich mix of familiar and new flavors. And while our celebrations sing a different tune this year, our goal is to ignite a spark of joy and hope in people. This time around, we bring an invitation to carry the merry, little by little, and inspire people to share moments of joy,” Jo-Ann Ramos, Starbucks Philippines Marketing Manager, said.
For the planners, it has the Starbucks Siren (Green) and the Starbucks Teavana Youthberry (Yellow). For the organizers, it has the Starbucks Frappuccino® Coral Pink Organizer and the Starbucks Reserve® Black Organizer.
With the Starbucks Siren Planner, the popular coffee chain seeks to offer their customers that familiar warm and friendly face that’s recognizably Starbucks. The coffee chain takes inspiration of how it “shares the tradition of great coffee through the iconic Siren, sharing its best tasting coffee – from sourcing and roasting to how it is brewed and served.”
The Starbucks Siren Planner features hardbound PU leather cover with embossed details of the iconic Starbucks Siren in green.
The Starbucks Teavana™ Youthberry Planner, meanwhile, is “inspired by tea traditions and rituals from many cultures.”
“We offer our customers a refreshing, vibrant and youthful personality to relate to through our Teavana™ Youthberry Planner,” Starbucks Philippines said in a statement.
The Teavana™ Youthberry also features a hardbound PU leather cover with embossed details of the iconic Starbucks Siren Tail in gold.
The pages of both planners are produced with eco-friendly papers in a facility certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
The Starbucks Frappuccino® Coral Pink Organizer seems to have been designed specifically for individuals who love to freely express their most authentic selves.
“We offer the Starbucks Frappuccino® Organizer to our customers who always welcome the idea of indulging, who give into the fun and colorful side of life,” Starbucks said.
With the Starbucks Reserve® Black Organizer, the major coffee chain highlights “coffees are the heart and soul of Starbucks Reserve®” and its “commitment to pursuing coffee craft and innovation.”
“Similar to premium coffee lineup, the Starbucks Reserve Organizer offers a
classic yet minimalistic elevated feel for our customers,” Starbucks said.
The organizers come with a multifunctional carrier that includes a silver zipper pull for the Black and gold zipper pull for the Coral Pink. One can conveniently place their IDs, credit cards, and even hand sanitizers as this year’s organizers have several pockets to pack in more essentials or bring it with you during meetings or casual day outs.
“All of this year’s planners and organizers come with more blank pages to fill so people who love to journal, write, or draw, can satisfy the creative junkie in them,” Starbucks said.
The 2021 Starbucks Planners and Organizers also comes with a bookmark, a set of fun and colorful stickers, and tear-off vouchers that customers can use throughout the year.
On a personal note, I am drawn towards the Starbucks Teavana™ Youthberry Planner. I love the tone of the color yellow they use. It is not too flashy nor too bright. The yellow tone they use is easy on the eyes.
As for the organizers and its multifunctional carrier, I love both the Starbucks Frappuccino® Coral Pink and the Starbucks Reserve® Black. The Frappuccino® Coral Pink organizer looks fun and bubbly while The Reserve® Black is sleek and has an understated elegance to it.
To get the planners or organizers, you have to collect a totoal of 18 stickers using either the paper promo card or the e-promo card in Starbucks Philippines Mobile app, with one sticker awarded for any purchase of a Tall, Grande, or Venti Starbucks® handcrafted beverage in-stores. The collection of stickers will start from November 3, 2020, to January 4, 2021 — in all Starbucks stores nationwide.

Aside from their collectible and popular planners and organizers, Starbucks Philippines is also rolling out its special holidays menu.

Fan-favorites Toffee Nut Crunch Latte and Peppermint Mocha are also making a comeback. Starbucks holiday beverages will be available in hot, iced, and blended formats.
Starbucks Philippines is also bringing back its Starbucks Christmas Blend and Starbucks Christmas Blend Espresso Roast. The Christmas Blend has been “roasted to create a sweet cup with cedary spiced layers.” The Christmas Blend Espresso Roast features “a deeper, darker blend and complex flavor profile with plummy sweetness and earthy spiciness.”
For their food and pastries, the coffee chain is bringing out the 17-layer Chocolate Crepe Cake with Belgian chocolate filling and the Chocolate Overload Chip Cookie.
New pastries include the Triple Chocolate Cake, a three-layer creation in dark and milk chocolate mousse, and the Chocolate Chip Doughnut.
Other pastries include the Apple Berry Crumble Cheesecake, which is topped with butter crumbles; Starbucks Holiday Coffee Cake, which is layers of moist espresso confection, with a light meringue and creamy coffee mousse; and the PBJ Doughnut, which comes with peanut butter filling and strawberry jam covered in confectioner’s sugar.
For their savory pastries they have the Chicken Fajita Roll, Prosciutto Cotto and Mozzarella Panzerotti, and the Holiday Ham, Eggwhite, Cheese on Croissant Bun. For those who want a meat-free pastry, they are offering Mushroom Bun and the Cheesy Spinach Tree.
