Starbucks’ Coffee Jelly Frappuccino

Starbucks has recently introduced Coffee Jelly Frappuccino in Malaysia. Coffee Jelly Frappuccino is only available in Japan and The Philippines and not anywhere else. And now, it’s available in Malaysia for a limited time.

However, unlike the Japan version, Coffee Jelly Frappuccino in Malaysia has smaller jellies.

There are two versions available, the regular version and the caramel version — in my opinion, the caramel version is just way too sweet. The jellies are soft and tasted like regular jellies. Perhaps the Malaysia version simply means coffee mixed with jelly rather than coffee jelly as one phrase.

Starbucks’ Coffee Jelly Frappuccino is available for a limited time only.

Taiwan Company Recalls Melamine-contaminated Coffee

Recalling of products contaminated with Melamine which has been spread worldwide has now reached even coffee products.

According to Taiwan News, The King Car Co., a Taiwanese company, has reported that it has recalled packs of Mr. Brown instant coffee and milk tea containing contaminated milk powder imported from China.

The company says the products may contain small amounts of melamine, a chemical used in plastics. Melamine-tainted dairy products have already killed four children and sickened more than 6,200 others in China.

But King Car said on Sunday that its popular coffee product sold in steel cans is free of the chemical.

UCC Super Coffee 2, yet another new addition to UCC range of Japanese coffee has a mellow taste with rich milk and fine quality beans. The coffee flavor really stands out as its brand. At only 100g, the premium coffee is so good, it feels almost drinking a 250g can of coffee.

UCC Super Coffee 2 retails at RM 4.50 (USD$ 1.30) at selected Jusco supermarkets.

Ramadan is here and Coffee Bean has introduced Banana Dates Ice-Blended, a refreshing drink with the mix of bananas and dates!

It has a strong flavor of bananas but the sweetness of the dates has somewhat spoiled the authentic taste of banana. Sadly, but it’s not a banana drink, it’s a Ramadan drink. Coffee Bean should have created a separate drink for date lovers, like how Starbucks did with Ramadan Frappuccino (which is only available in the Middle East). I would prefer Starbucks Banana Java Chip Frappuccino anytime — only if they still have it.

Retailing at RM 12.00, Coffee Bean Card holders get RM 2.00 off! This drink is only available for Ramadan.

Starbucks’ Pomegranate Peach Frappuccino Blended Juice Drink is refreshing and tasty and somewhat it is also healthy as pomegranate is ranked the healthiest fruit juice.

It is the best choice of drink especially during a hot sunny day. Pomegranate Peach Frappuccino Blended Juice Drink soothes the thirst and makes you feel as though as you are chilling out at the beach.
