Give a sip to soy twist with Soy Chocolate Cream Frappuccino®. Blended along in ice, topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of rich chocolate sauce, this new Frappuccino® blended beverage allows you to personalize the choice of milk in your beverage. Now you may choose from low fat or soy milk options, just as you would for your favorite espresso beverage.

This lip-smacking beverage is blended with ice and topped with whipped cream and finished with a drizzle of rich chocolate sauce.

“Ordering a beverage just as you like it has always been an important part of the Starbucks Experience. This summer, mix up for Frappuccino’s® anyway you like for that personal touch, replace milk with soy if that tickles your taste buds” said Sydney Quays, Marketing and Communications Director of Berjaya Starbucks Coffee Company

Other interesting photo taken during the press. 1- Cream base is a type of syrup that are used to create thick and smooth texture or else the beverage will be very plain. 2- Button 1 is a typical blend. When you ask for double blend mean the barista will press twice button 1. FYI, it will be very watery as the ice melted too fast. 3- This is the secret recipe for Extra Coffee Mocha Frappuccino® Blended Beverage and  Soy Green Tea Cream Frappuccino® . 4- There are 3 type of syrup used, they are Vanilla, caramel and hazelnut. 

After everything, we were invited for lunch. This is where all you can order lunch. Since i always eat the muffin so i ask the barista for recommendation. They recommend me Raisin Cream Cheese, RM4.80 and Tuna Melt, RM12.90. Another one is Shepherd's Pie, RM7.50. Picture shown 1- Shepherd's Pie, the filling taste so good. 2- Raisin Cream Cheese, cheese melt must serve hot. Another Tuna melt is super good but i kind of forget to take the picture of it before i finish :)
